A Little Bird Told Me!

Happy Halloween everyone and a happy birthday to my brother - law.
Back this morning with a couple of cards to show that I managed to make yesterday keeping to the same theme as my last two cards, so I decided to use up the little scraps of leftovers from my paper piecing on the Dove card and found that these little and very cute stamps were just the job. Even though they are a Christmas stamp set of Robins by Woodware they can be made to fit all kinds of occasions and I think that is what makes these stamps so versatile.

This first card I made using the same colours as the Dove and the second card I changed for a different look using some fantastic background 12x12 paper by Papermania which comes in different colours with similar designs some of which are already glittered and I have to add is an extremely good price, teamed up with Kraft card, then the birds I have paper pieced and coloured with my Promarkers finished with of course a touch of Quickie glue pen and glitter.  A Little Bird sentiment is from a set of Neighbourwood Stamps by the same name and just perfect for my cards, the Best Wishes was a freebie from Craft Stamper Mag some time ago.

Oh well off to find something else to do.....what was that???? house work!!! who said that? I think maybe
it was a little bird that told me! lol x   Sheilagh.
