Birds of a Feather

Afternoon my crafty friends and followers

Well had a lovely meal out with my sons, daughter-in-law and granddaughter Alice and hubby.  Alice is now walking and is just a little cutie.  Back home now and in my craft room and I have got a busy 4 days ahead of me getting DT work done and some more admin to finish off.  I hope you are all keeping well and here is my offering for you today.

Recipe & Method

1.  Kanban 5 x 5 shaped card which I have distressed using Dew Drop VersaMagic Aloe Vera.
2. Using Spellbinder Lattice Rectangle Dies I have cut out 3.  I have distressed 2 of them using Dew Drop VersaMagic Thatched Straw and on of the using the Aloe Vera.  The larger of the dies I have threaded cream ribbon through and tied in a bow.
3.  The stamps came free with my Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine.  Using Adirondack in Lettuce I have stamped the image onto the central panel and another bird on the bottom right hand corner.
4.  The flock of birds at the top of the card are from a collection of Tim Holtz.  I have stamped the greeting from my crafty stash onto a small rectangle "Let's Celebrate".

Thank you for stopping by Today
