Glorious Sunny Saturday

Wow hasn't the weather today been glorious? Well it has in this part of Hertfordshire! Beautiful blue skies and warm Spring sunshine - lovely.

Well today I made a few cards. One of which I am entering as the Daring Cardmakers "draw a bird" challenge. Visit their blog for more information.
Well I haven't exactly drawn just any old bird - I have drawn a chicken, yes a chicken? I'm not sure why but she looks quite cheerful on this "carefree" card. The paper is by Fancy Pants. The bottom card has been coloured with Lime Pearl Mica Spray and Sky Blue Pearl Mica Spray from Dylusions and the chicken herself is also card painted with Dylusions Yellow acrylic paint. For the beak and feathers on the top of her head they are coloured using Neo color crayons.


The second card to share today is "dream" for which I used Fancy Pants and Scenic Route papers and a gem. A bit of doodling and finish!


The last card you might recognise, as it was laying on my desk on Wednesday, and it has now been finished. I stamped flowers onto some Scenic Route papers and cut them out then stuck a gem in the middle. These were then matted onto some paper printed from my Artylicious CD ROM Filigree Fusion (another thing I have found whilst looking for something else hahaha)

Well not a bad haul for the first day into my holidays. Thanks for dropping by.
