Birds at Make My Monday!

Happy New Year to all my blogging buddies!  Last day of my Christmas break today so hopefully I will make the most of it.  Not only do we see a New Year but also a new monthly theme at the fab Make My Monday Challenge Blog.

Fliss, my fellow DT member is certainly provided us with a lovely month of challenges- :  NATURE!  The week's theme is:-


Here is my contribution to this week's DT.  It's another 8x8 card.  I think it's from my scrapbooking days but I like working on this size card the best.

I have used Mariposa papers from DCWV along with my new Martha Stewart Hydrangea border punch (thank you son!), Woodware bird stamps and rose dog wreath stamp, Paperartsy flower stamp, Papermania text stamp and Marianne Design Creatable LR0152 (thank you Neil!).  I have accented the bird and flower with glossy accents.

Please visit us at the Make My Monday Blog - it's a stress free friendly challenge with free rein on what you create, whether it be stamping, die cutting, decoupage ..... all types of crafting are welcomed!  There is a lovely prize (donated by Fliss) for the monthly winner, which is chosen from our weekly top 3.  Suzanne ~x~

This is just gorgeous Suz and really love the colours you chose. The birds and flowers are lovely and the hydrangea border looks beautiful (I have this too and it's really useful).
Wishing you a Happy New Year and a great 2012.
Hoping you have our sunshine too.
Hugs, Fliss xx

Hi Suzanne, thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog earlier - much appreciated :) You have your family well trained buying you crafty goodies!!! What a lovely MS punch though. You're right, I love Mariposa. The colours are gorgeous and so often I don't use the paper because it's too nice to cut up!!
