All creatures great and small at Fab'n'funky Challenges


Good Morning all

Hope you are all bright and breezy this morning - not sure if I am or not but it's a good description of the weather! - it's been more than a bit fresh here on the North East coast - roll on summer!

I've been having an exciting couple of days (that's apart from the sickness bug - yuk!)
My older son left home over a year ago now and I've finally inherited his room as a craftroom.  I moved into the room to craft a while ago because he already had a lovely desk area - but the rest needed to be sorted!!  We moved the bed out at Christmas and swapped it with a sofa bed we had in the spare bedroom and I've now got a lovely craftroom with lots of storage - and a very clever work area built over the sofa bed!  - it's not finished yet still some shelves to put up and lots of sorting and organising to do - but I'm so excited. I do have a very clever husband - photos to follow!!

But I digress....

We have a new challenge starting at 

Fab'n'Funky Challenges 

hosted by our lovely Sharon

who chose the theme

All creatures great and small

I made a very simple card for a man friend's birthday 

using one of the Tim Holtz - Crazy Birds
I just love these - a stamp for all occasions!



This is what I did....

Image - Crazy birds from Tim Holtz
Coloured with Spectrun Noir pens and pencils
Sentiment - Crazy Birds Sentiment stamps
Papers - MME Tangerine
Dies - Memory box stitched squares, MFT fishtail flags
Black mat card - Crafter's Companion

I hope we'll see you playing along with us this week

hugs

I'm totally with you on Summer Judith, such a long dreary winter it seems.

Love these funky birdies, make such a fun card and perfect sentiment with it.

So cute Judith. Love the colour. Pleased for you that you have your own craftroom now.
Sorry if I don't comment on all your cards but my hubby is so very ill and I am at the hospital lots of times in a week with him and also caring for him.

I love this image, Judith - looking at its face I wonder what he is thinking. Hope you're a lot better today. How nice you now have your own craft room now - but hope you're going to craft in there and not just snooze on the sofa bed...!!Ha Ha.
