Some Birdie Loves You .....

Morning ...... Happy Friday!!

These Bank Holidays don't half mess up my week .... and we've got another one to look forward to next week!  Yes next Friday is a Bank Holiday on the Isle of Man ......  the TT Senior Race Day.  At least it's at the end of the week!
Anyhow ...... what happened to the last 5 days?  In fact ..... what happened to May!?  It can't be June at the weekend, that means it's only 2 weeks before we're off to the Cotswolds and less than 5 weeks until we go to Vegas!  So much for getting organised with blog stuff etc.,  for while I'm away.   I'd better get a move on next week otherwise I'll be packing some craft stash to take with me!!

I'm joining in the fun over at Less is More again this week, and we have a Recipe to follow ......

We have to include a
DIE CUT

Well ..... as it happens I received my goodies from Make the Day Special Stamp Store earlier in the week .......  my LIM Monthly Winner's prize.  Luckily I'd chosen a cute little stamp set along with matching DIES - yeah!!! (amongst other stuff!!!)

What do you think? .........

Two cute little lovebirds ..... so tweet!
The stamp set is called 'Love Birds' and has a matching set of dies, by WPlus9 Design Studio. 

How cute are these little guys ......


We used to have an aviary a few years ago, no love birds in there but we had Parakeets, Australian King Parrots, Canaries, Budgies, a right old mix. They all had names too!  My favourite was a Princess of Wales Parakeet ...... called Belle.  She would follow me round at feeding time then settle on my hand while she ate.  We sold it all when we were planning to move to Spain ..... but that's another story!  Maybe one day we'll do it all again.

Sorry ..... I digress.  I added a touch of embossed detail to the bottom of the card and the sentiment ....


Mat it on to some matching green cardstock  and attached it to the front of a 7x5 cardblank.

For the inside I used a bird again, without die cutting him this time, and just perched him cheekily on the branch.


I love my new stamps and dies .... thanks again LIM for choosing me as a monthly winner.

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy your day.  I'm off for coffee and a good old natter with a friend this morning.

Cheerio until next time .....
