Love birds

Hello I hope you are well x

I have been sooooo busy this week as it's my sons 3rd birthday tomorrow and I am also orgainising his Christening which is in early November so there really hasn't been much time to play with my crafty stash.

BUT (there is always a but !) I was very naughty and bought this beautiful die (I can't wait to make my own Christmas decorations with this - O I do hope it will cut felt) and I just had to play with it straight away. So I made a quick and very simple easel card to show it off.

I used the colours from this weeks CR8 4FN colour challenge as my inspiration

I would also like to add my card to the following challenges;

Catered crop recipe # 22
- I used warm fall colours, kraft, die cuts, hearts and a 3 loop bow.
The kraft journal - To die cut for
Anything goes - Die cuts/punches
Bearly mine challenges - Easel does it !
My Mums craft shop - Inspired by a song (Eva Cassidy - Songbird - such a beautiful song)

Thanks for visiting leave a comment so I can visit you too x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
