A little bird with Moon Lake from Stampin' Up

Living here in the heart of England, I'm lucky enough to be able to step out of my door into glorious countryside and I'm always attracted to stamps with a nature theme - like Moon Lake from the Stampin' Up spring/summer catalogue. Here's a note card made with the cute little bird from the set:

I sponged a background using a mask cut with the 2 1/2" circle punch before stamping this beautiful image.

It was fun to colour using the Stampin' Write markers!

A simple embellishment can really lift a card. I gave this one a double row of pierced holes using one of the Essentials piercing templates, then added a paper clip tied up with the new Painted Blooms twine (you get three spools in the pack and this one is gorgeous Wild Wasabi.)

Sometimes it feels as if I'm feeding animals all day! We have lots of blue tits, sparrows, robins, and other small birds visiting the feeder in the garden and I seem to have cats and dogs queuing up for meals all day! The cat seems to wait until the busiest moments and then turns up in the hallway just like the guy who never gets his drinks order in Fawlty Towers!

Thanks for visiting today. See you tomorrow,
