 Hello everyone,

Well, things didn't go quite to plan with me coming here everyday,.I lost a file of photos and could not find it anywhere, so must have deleted a file and left some photos in it, I can see it when downloading more files but cannot click on it as it is not there???

Never mind I'll take some snaps of the finished projects to share and get on with these birdies which I made along time ago when my birdie theme was were in my brain and labelled them without the word Christmas in front,,that caused a headache too..but stumbled on them so you never know!!

This day started with die cutting [ no surprise there], with numbers..

Then added snowflakes and confused myself ..22, why did I make a 22..duh!

The fives were in the bowl..

Die this little lovley from silver paper.

and snowflakes..

lots of them..

From this delicious paper pad, it is only paper, but cute like a dream and that's what I need for snowflakes that are intricate..beautiful colours.

Then it was the birds turn..pale blue, navy blue, teal and kraft..
mixed and matched..

then inked..and little glass eyes added..

Cut a load of white 25's as the red was too much.

Splattered the background panel..

Glued then onto the bases..

Elements already to go..

Branches glued onto one side of sentiment..

25 on top..

Birdie on the is growing bit by bit..

Until there were four..

Then decided I need flowers, so using my new foil type papers I cut flowers and layered those babies up..

Then I didn't like them...
the  colours mixed like that, it bothered me..

So, re-cut some more teal and then I was happy..
Lots of stuff.

the panels, after adding the silver snowflakes, had a paper border ribbon put on, I've had this forever and it was just what I needed and found it in my secret cupboard [ more on that later]

Then the flowers went on, and,

There were four..

Smaller cards, been making then a lot lately
 and enjoying the space even though it is smallish..

The different colours...

The teal flower looks so much better..

So there we go..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll maybe see you tomorrow..

Sorry to hear about your missing files, I know one time when I did an update on my computer the place where it decided to save them was different than the folder I normally use, hopefully you will find them.
Your card is just gorgeous, love the bird on the 25 and the way you used the flower and branches. I couldn't see anywhere that you mentioned the maker of that bird die, that is just too cute, love the colors you used for them!

Chris said...
