Birds, Butterfly and Herbs

Morning Everyone

And it's a very early morning for me here. The sun is up - just- and the sky is blue but the scudding clouds are grey and look rain-laden. I can also see from my craft room window that there's quite a breeze blowing out there too. I think we are in for a showery and blustery day which is a pity because I'm going to have to go out in it. I'm off to the quilting class this morning - the first of this new Autumn term.

I did intend joining in with WOYWW yesterday, I even had the photo of my desk all lined up, when a domestic crisis arose, as they do, and all notion of blogging a post had to be put on the back burner. Needless to say, by the time I could get back to thinking about it again it was too late, I gave up and went to bed.  Life's like that these days - one day it's bowling along happily, next it's thrown me a curve ball or two. I suppose I should be better prepared and have a post or two in draft form ready to go, but somehow I'm never that organised - sigh!

Anyway, all is well this morning - so far! - and I have a little card to share.
It was made using bits found in the bit box. I must have stamped and coloured the herb image more than a year ago and the bird covered piece was an experiment in inking done around the same time. They've been matted on to some purple card from the scrap basket and decorated with a butterfly made from the tiniest snippet of leftover card and one of the new Dinky dies I found in The Range recently. The base is a black 5" square card blank. I'd give you more details but, in truth, I've forgotten what I used and even where the stamps are at this moment. If there is anything you need to know about the stamps just ask and I will dig them out later.

That's it for today. Now I must run and get ready or I'll never get to the class on time.

I hope you have a great day.

Happy Crafting,
