Good Tuesday morning to everyone who visits my blog. I thank you very much, and feel free to stay a while and leave a comment. It will more than welcomed.
I hope you all had a good weekend, and has not been too cold for you . One of our fish in our pond died a couple of days ago but couldn't get it out because the ice was so thick. We only managed today to break a small corner of the ice to get it out. The ice was at least 1" thick and it has thawed a little compared with last week, to enable to get it out to bury the fish in the garden.
Today I went to fill the bird feeders, a job I find I have to do several times a day at the moment, and I have become very friendly with a little Robin, as I was filling the feeder the robin came and sat on the handrail to the decking. As you do I made silly birdie noises and held out the container to him/her, and blow me, it flew onto the container and ate a few nuts. It was literally inches from me. I thought how wonderful to have something so beautiful so close. Now I am working towards it landing on my hand, Any tips?
Today's card I have used The shoes stamp by Creative Expressions, and the sentiment is a phrase from Marilyn Monroe. I've tried to use the more 50's/60's flower power vibe with more vibrant colours.
Wasn't Sue'S weekend show's fantastic. She makes everything so do-able and want-able.

I Started with an 8X8 black card, and matt and layered it with CE holographic card and another layer of foundations card embossed with Sue Wilson's folder, and did the same on a smaller scale for the focal point. I then used the daisy mask and inked it with the 3 Adirondack ink pads. I then covered it with a sticky sheet and covered it with beautiful iced snow glitter. For the focal point I cut a centre of thr Spellbinders Radiant rectangles and edged it with Sue Wilson's new Caribbean collection- St Barts. I used the Creative expressions shoes stamp and did stripes of Adirondack ink over the stamp. i stamped the sentiment on to white foundation card and cut it out with the oval die from the radiant rectangles die set.I cut some flowers from Sue Wilson's camellia die set and coloured with the same Adirondack stamps, and finished it with the seam binding ribbon also coloured with the Adirondack stamp pads. I tied a messy bow and attached it to the side of the card.
I hope you like this card.
