Early Birdie!!!!!

I just had to post this photo straight away. I was up early to make a card for a very special friend. She shares my passion for crafting, we are constantly bouncing ideas of each other and she has had a bit of a rough ride lately. She is lovely.

This is so not my style of card, but I have been looking at other cards, particularly Steph's cards, the shabby chic style. And although I don't think this comes anywhere near her delightful creations, I am happy with it as my first attempt. I used some papers I have had forever, some ribbon I cant even remember where I got it from and Whisper White cardstock from SU. The image i am just loving at the moment, Tilda is so cute, I have this one and Dress Up Tilda, and definitely feel more are needed. The sentiments are from the Circle of Friends Stamp set from SU

Imagine my horror then when I came to photograph the card. I had done what I had told my Thursday Kids Craft Club not to do!!!!!


Well my daughter said it makes it unique and she was sure my friend would see the funny side. That'll teach me to make cards at the eleventh hour, or fifth hour as it was this morning.

Right off to feed myself and children then brave the joy of Asda shopping on Saturday morning!!!!!! See you later.


  1. Your friend will love this beautiful card & I'm sure it will cheer her up no end :) I particularly admire the papers you have put together - you should defo do this style more often! Thanks so much for your kind words....I just get my inspiration from everyone else, that's what's great about blogging!
    LOL you're not alone - we've all made THAT mistake xxx
