You put the merry in Christmas..................

I totally forgot I had this little stamp until I come across it whilst clearing up the other day - a bit like the fact that when we had a cold spell here in Florida, I rushed out and bought warmer clothes, totally forgetting that I did the same last year and found them when I was clearing out the closet.......................
Back to the card, sweet birdie stamped, paper pieced and coloured with copics, flowers by prima, the black ric-rac is a tape runner thingy that I bought, it didn't work when I bought it, and it doesn't work now, hence the strategic placing of flowers.



I still have all my Christmas cards to write, have given up on the idea of making them all and bought some, then there is still a crafty mess in the garage, the fridge to clean, windows to wash ............as you read this I will probably be in a comatose, exhausted heap on the airplane, making my way back to 'dear old blighty'. (Mike is a bit addicted to old war movies, so I tend to pick up the lingo)
So cheerio America for another three months, thank you all for being your usual warm, friendly and welcoming selves during our stay here.

Cheerio, sweet lady. There should be a Thank you card for you in the UK that should arrive a few days after you get back. It is my very late thank you for the stash you sent me in August! Enjoy!

Enfys, hope you had a safe, relaxing flight. Love the little birdie! I have a few of those tape runner things and they don't work!

jaybeemom said...

Love the card. Here's a tip that worked for me with those tape runners. Take it out of the housing and use it like a rub-on-works much better.
