Feed the birds


I was delighted to be asked to be the first guest designer at Natalie and Amy's Challenge. They have a lovely online store and I wish them every success with the challenge and the store.

I have chosen this cute Crafter's Companion image, many of these stamps are avilable at Natalie and Amy's. Coloured with Promarkers with glitter flock for snow. I wanted to use traditional Christmas colours and these papers which are MME and HOTP, both freebies last year with magazines, were perfect. I found the sparkly twine when I was having a sort out of my ribbons and lace the other day. I have had it for years and never used it for some odd reason. I've used my new MS bird on a wire border punch and coloured a Kars wooden bird so it looks like a robin.
