Basic Grey Birdie


This card was meant to be for the Daring Cardmakers dare this week, I pressed on happily with it 'use three pattern papers' they said 'preferably from different ranges'. So I made the card, sat back and counted the pattern papers, two. Oh bummer. The little bird is a stamp I got from my Funky Hand DT mate Lythan in a swap.
I think it was another senior moment, oh no, I can't count up to three now. Yesterday, in an email to her design team, Regina referred to a senior moment. Senior? Have you seen that girl's photograph? No, senior is when, like me, you go shopping for food, and come home waving a bunch of parsley. Honestly, this happened yesterday, I forgot the sugar, tea, milk and bread, but it was a very nice bunch of parsley.

  5. You sound like me. lol I am always trying to put the milk in the cabinet or the cereal in the fridge. lol

    I LOVE this card, it is so me! The colors, layout, paper and stamp are all perfect. I have been dying to try Basic Grey paper, they have the best patterns and color combos. Super job!!
