Totally Gorjuss - 99 - Birds of a Feather.

Good morning everyone and hasn't this last week flown past. Not sure what I've been doing but I don't seem to have had any spare time!

We left last Friday to stay at my daughter's house as we were going to a wedding on Saturday. Then we babysat Poppy and Oliver on Sunday and came home on Monday. I did have my laptop with me but it never even made it out of the bag. Then of course I had to catch up with washing and ironing. I did manage to keep up with my DT commenting but never got a card made until Wednesday. Got some made on Thursday and then managed to get some very simple cards made for Less is More on Friday morning. I've come to the conclusion that I'd get on better if my internet connection was a bit quicker, I always waste a lot of time waiting for something  to happen!!

But here's my card for Totally Gorjuss. This week our theme is "Birds of a Feather" and as the title suggests we'd like to see birds on your card or project. Now I have to admit to struggling here. I'm not really a bird person and don't really have bird stamps. I've got one or two Easter themed stamps and maybe one or two Christmassy ones. I decided that the theme implied more than one bird so that made it even more difficult. I remembered this cute Penny Black stamp and found a little bird in a clear set and thought I could add it to the main image.

It's quite a simple card but I've added lots of glitter and jewels and I quite like it lol! Oops I nearly forgot to say that we are sponsored by Lili of the Valley so if you win you could buy some of their lovely new stamps.

I used :-
Image :- Penny Black.
Sentiment & Card Candi :- Craftwork Cards.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
DP :- MME.
Sizzix snowflake, Martha Stewart punch, Glamour Dust & jewels.
I'm not sure if this card fits any challenges but I'll check after work.

Thanks for looking and enjoy your weekend.
