Bluebirds


Thanks so much for your positive comments on my first zentangle card yesterday. I was amazed to receive so many comments for it. For those who asked I bought a workbook which explains how to do it and has some designs in there and then it is a case of playing around and making up your own too. I loved doing it and can't wait to try more.

Our challenge this week at Crafty Little Fairies is buttons and we are sponsored by Whiff of Joy. Hop over to see the beautiful cards from the rest of the DT.

I recently bought 4 Elisabeth Bell stamps from somebody on Facebook. They were all ones which I love and had missed out on buying when they were originally for sale so I couldn't resist them. Doesn't she have the sweetest face and the pose reminds me of Snow White.
