Tweet Birthday Card

Here's a birthday card made with pre-printed birds from Craftwork cards, I hand drew the extra long legs. The tree was cut from the Winter Woodland cartridge with my cricut, at 4"..........................


and I dotted the tree with teensy buttons and some doodling dots with a white pen

Papers all from Craftwork Cards
Border punch - double scallop dot by Martha Stewart
Buttons - Papermania
Tree - winter woodland
white pen - signo

Here's what happens on a bitterly cold Sunday afternoon in my eldest son's house - Kiki with her face painted beautifully by her mum Annabel, and pretending to be a scary tiger........................
.................and here is what happens when her very long suffering, beautiful mum allows Kiki to have a go with the face paints....................
On balance, I'm glad I wasn't there!


I have been a very bad blog friend just lately, so much on I haven't had time to pop over to your blogs. Bear with me, I will get there........
See you tomorrow
