Birds

Hi Lovelies,

This card is for the latest CAS-ual Fridays challenge here.  This time the challenge was to use birds on your project.  I have been itching to use this Jillibean Soup stamp set for ages & thought it would suit this challenge perfectly.  This is such a simple card to make.  I started with a small scrap of kraft on which I stamped the bird first then masked, before stamping the cage.  I then coloured the bird with a white prismacolour pencil.  I inked the edges with Walnut Stain before adhering it to a card base.  I then stamped a Hero Arts sentiment in Walnut Stain.  That's it.  Took me a whole five minutes maybe.......

I just want to wish all you Mums' out there a wonderful Mothers Day.  My day is half over (just like my washing lol) with dh & Lils' asleep & Emsy sacked out in front of the TV.  So between the laundry I'm crafting.  Happy Mothers' Day xoxoxoxo
