My Time to Craft! #406 Birds

Hi, guys! As you read this I will be travelling home after a week spent in Shropshire, close to where my son and his family live. It's a beautifulpart of the country, stuffed full of history and with some fabulous walks by the River Severn. Of course, as a fan of Ellis Peters' 'Brother Cadfael' mediaeval mystery series I love exploring round Shrewsbury, where the stories are set! Do visit, if you ever have the chance.

Anyway, I have scheduled this post, and I hope I've got it right!

Our challenge this time is simply - Birds. I have a gorgeous pink flamingo on my card!

I have been sorting through my card kits and came across one from Simon Says Stamp last year which included the One Cool Pineapple stamp set, which is still available to buy on its own. I LOVE this stamp set! I stamped and coloured the flamingo and used a circle die to cut it out, then added streaks of Copics in blue to make the water round its feet. I also gave the water some sparkle with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen.

The paper is left over from the kit, as are the sequins and the 'Happy Birthday' stamp. When my daughter came to visit she looked through my cards and walked off with every single one that I'd made with this kit - I think she liked them! It was lovely to go back and use up some more of my stash.

Anyhoo, that's my card for this Challenge. I know my teamies will have made a gorgeous collection of Bird cards to inspire you, so do go and see!

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

(Now for the scheduling, I hope I get it right!)
