I hope you had a lovely weekend. I didn't post on Friday like I usually do as I went down with a 48 hour bug that even kept me out of my craft room (it was that bad!!). But I'm back to 'normal' now and I've made a card using Winnie and Walter 'So Tweet' stamps. I was inspired to get this stamp set out again after seeing an amazing card by Rebekah Weckerley who I have recently discovered on Instagram. Her blog is here.
I have used my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers to colour both the bird and the leaves and flowers and then added some Glossy Accents to the little bird's chest/heart.
I cut the 'hugs' out using my Cameo and heat embossed that with a woodgrain stamp onto some pink card and then layered it onto some black card which I slightly offset so that it gave it a 3D effect.
I also heat embossed the sentiment which is from the same stamp set. It is all adhered onto some watercolour card that I cut out using WPlus9's Sunshine Layers.
We had a big dollop of snow overnight last Thursday which settled quite heavily on ice so it caused a few problems on the roads although I have to say that where I live everyone is used to snow and just gets on with it but when we walked into town at the weekend for our usual Saturday morning coffee, it was a bit slippery underfoot and I remembered reading recently that walking like penguins is a good way to stop yourself from slipping up on ice. So much to my husband's amusement (and embarrassment) I waddled down the road like a penguin!!!! And do you know....it works! We were laughing all the way to the coffee shop. I dare you to try it :-)
