I'm back!

Oooh 3 months into 2012 and I'm finally back at my blog.  Where does time fly?

I've re-edited this post and uploaded a new picture of the card I took.  This time Andy took a much better picture for me.  I sent the card to him because as the card says, he is so special to me :).

Well there is a lovely craft shop in Taunton called Craftasmic.  It's been there awhile, it's just that I haven't been in it (not wanting to be tempted!).  But now I have, OMG I've got addicted into craftmaking again.  It is full of fantastic craft products.  And has lots of lovely Tim Holtz goodies inside.

So I was in there the other day and bought this cute birdcage die from Cottage Cutz.  I had to make the birdcage because the die does not give you the complete birdcage.  Oh no, it's all in seperate bits and quite fiddly to put together.  I stamped the branch in white and embossed it in white to 'hang' the birdcage from.  Quite a simple card really.  The sentiment is by Hero Arts (I'm sorry, I can't remember which clear stamp set it is from).  I sponged the two little birds with distress inks and dotted in their eyes with a black biro.

I'm hoping to update more regularly from now on.  I really hope I can put up better quality pictures in future.

Thank you for stopping by

Well I'm now using a big fat iMac computer screen and the image of your card looks great to me - very pretty!
