Happy Bird-Day

Happy Tuesday Bloggers, mine has dawned bright, sunny but a tad chilly, I hope the weather in your location is kind to you today too.  I was up bright and early this morning and as I've been away from home for a few days, there was a large pile of laundry building up.  One load is washed and hung out on the line already and I'm hoping it proves to be a good drying day. although I'm not looking forward to the resultant ironing that will be required !

Whilst away from home I was really missing my crafting, although I did manage to do a little knitting - well those who know me understand that I can't survive without something craft-related with me wherever I go.  I had a nice break away but was more than happy to get back to my stash and do a little cardmaking (and sewing) again.
This little card was created using a stamp I bought recently and is one of the DoCrafts Urban range of stamps.  It's a cute bird but quite large - the base card is 5 x 5 inches to give you some idea of the size of the image.
I stamped the bird onto the base card and again on some patterned paper, then I inked just the wing area of the image and stamped onto a scrap of coloured cardstock.  After cutting out the body of the bird stamped onto the paper I attached it over the stamped image on the base card.  I do like the faux stitching around the edges of the image and if you are a stitcher, it would be really easy to create a template for applique using the stamp.
To finish off the design I added touches of Stardust Stickles and stamped a sentiment (from a SU! set) vertically in the bottom righthand corner.
Thanks for popping by to check out today's project, hope you like it. I'll be working my way around the blogs I visit regularly to catch up on posts I've missed whilst having no internet access, during the next couple of days hopefully.

Good to have you back Wynneth and I see you brought some sun with you too. Thanks for that :oD

What a lovely bird and such a spring-like image. We like that. Hope you get your laundry dry and that it is a crease free zone :oD
