Oh my!

Oh my what a shock I had yesterday - the internet went down! ~gasps~ I know I was in shock too! It took me till this afternoon to sort it out, I even had to do something technical with the router too ~double gasps~ I know me doing techy stuff. Whatever next?

Well next is my card for this weeks challenge over at Cute Daisy May a sketch, drawn by yours truly (that's me by the way).

I thought it looked quite good in my head.... so I chose my image, picked the paper (new Bloom and Grow by MME) and got stuck in.... what I didn't realise the image I'd chosen was a tad big for my card blank! What a twonk I am.... Anyway I'd got half the papers stuck together by then... So here she is. In her disproportionate glory!

While I had the papers out I thought I'd do another quick card using them. They are rather lush! That norty Lynne at the Craft Den pointed me towards the stamps which matched the papers (a bargain at 99p per stamp).... well whats a girl to do? You've got it buy them! So I used the little bird and coloured him with Marvy pens and huffed abit and stamped him out likewise with the blossom and leaves. A scrap of ribbon finished the card off.

A touch of punching a la Martha Stewart too. I even managed to match the points up too! I've discovered I get on much better if I use the punches back to front rather than lining the patterns up on the front.

Well I suppose I should go and cook something - two hungry birdies are yelling at me telling me its tea time!

Can you hear them?
