Enjoy Your Day Little Birdies

This card is sweet and simple, and full of feathery fun.

There must be a family of blackbirds in our garden. On Saturday, we let Miya out into the garden, and about 2 minutes later all we could hear is the incessant chatter of an angry bird….constantly! We brought Miya inside, and it stopped. A little while later, we let Miya out again – and, yip, you guessed it, the bird went crazy again. It sounds like a high pitched car alarm, and the sound carries the whole way through he house.

Poor Miya hasn’t got outside since. But at least the birdies are safe, and Mummy & Daddy bird aren’t having nervous breakdowns.

But i am warning you now, mister blackbird, if you wake us up at 5.30am again I will not hesitate to let Mizu outside with her hunting gear!

Have a tweet day everyone!

Be You Bookmark card

These are so quick and easy to make, and are perfect gifts, especially for teachers or friends. Check out Jennifer MaGuire’s video here which walks you through how to make one of these cool Bookmark Cards.

For mine, i’ve used Raindrops stamp from heroarts, and a heart swirl stamp, also heroarts. The bird is a stamp from the Unity Stamps June Kit of the Month. I’m not sure where the little ‘be you’ stamp comes from, its been lurking in my stash for a little while now. Doesn’t it look mega cute!?

Have a great day

MYM – Simply ‘hi’

by Lesley Oman on 24 May, 2010

I’m back, as promised, to share today’s Miss You Monday card. Today is a simple, generic card, perfect for almost any occasion, as it simply says ‘hi’. Sometimes you don’t need to say much more than that!

This card is inspired by the way that in the good ol’ days, when every little boy and girl wanted a paper round as their first job! The papers would come folded with a a little piece of paper wrapped around it to hold it secure.

The card is simply scored twice to create a trifold base, but to add a little bit of interest I cut away the right edge into curves so you can see the coloured insert peeping through! The sleeve of the card is the fun bit, because it can be decorated in anyway you want. I used some Heidi Swapp chipboard flower shapes, some buttons and string, along with a few stickers from my box of tricks, and for a little bit of pizzazz, I stamped a flourish into the inside using a heroarts stamp and distress ink. Above all I love the glittery card from the DCWV glitter stack, which is bright, colourful and summery.

Thanks for stopping by, Leave me a comment here.

Don’t forget that I have a treat for you this week, as every day i will be sharing thank you cards for all those amazing teachers out there! See you then.

Hey everyone, and happy Monday!

I’m mixing it up a little today!! It is of course time for another Miss You Monday card, but as I had issues with YouTube at the weekend, I wasn’t able to post the video i promised. So i’ve decided to post the video this morning for your enjoyment, and later this evening I’ll post this weeks MYM card. WOW, double the fun today, huh?! ♥

This card sums up my mood at the moment! SUMMERTIME!! I’ve had a fantastic weekend, chillin with friends, and between BBQs and beach visits, I am definitely feeling like Summer has finally arrived [♥]. I even have a little bit of colour in my cheeks – although i must say that the ‘red face / white eyes’ look is making me reconsider wearing sunglasses on those bright, sunny days! I look like a weird panda! LOL

The main inspiration for this project was these cool chipboard shapes from Bisous! I totally love the wide variety of cool shapes, the colour combos and the fact that they are really adhesive. I also love the fact that they are self contained on a sheet, rather than in a bag or box that you need to turf out just to see all the remaining shapes. With them all on this fold out sheet, it is soooo very easy to find the exact ones to use. This set is from the ‘hot’ collection, and have bright, bold colours, and I was eager to couple these with a recently purchased cloud stamp from heroarts. And i just ♥ the result!

Thanks for popping by, and come back later to see the MYM card! Enjoy the video! Leave a comment here.
