A bird on the flourish...

is worth two in the bush?!

Hello Lovelies :)


Now, if you've been paying attention, you'll know, you've seen this layout from me before. But, I thought it lent itself well to a bit of flourish action. The flourish is completely vintage, we're talking at least 2009 here. And it's from a Christmas set. Yep, I've been looking at my Christmas stuff. Only looking mind! Christmas is ages away...

Mojo is still in the pub. As they say on tv, what's on the board, Miss Ford:

Mojo and Colouring - 2
Fluffie and No Stamping Creations - 3.5
Pending Mojo and Colouring Projects - 2
Pending Fluffie and No Stamping Creations - 2
Outstanding August DT Commitments requiring Mojo and Colouring Assistance - 3

Right, I think I'll take the rest of the day off!

I'd like to enter this card at:

Crafty Catz - Animals
Delightful Challenges - Punches and Dies
Poodles Parlour - Die Cuts

Think Mojo should stay in the pub - you don't need her going by this great card.

Well, my lovely, mojo or no mojo, this is a corker. Love the birdie and the flourish makes a lovely branch for him to sit on. But if Mr Mojo is at the pub, can you tell him that mine's a large G&T - what are you having? xx

Well Faye, your naughty lack of mojo definitely hasn't affected your ability to make a wonderful card. I really love the design and those papers are so pretty together.
I hope you have a great weekend

Sweet Cheeks looks all growed up in your previous post! Even though I can only see the back of his head! That's a perfect off to school kind of hair cut! And as for this card - I love it. Super CAS! Super papers and perfect little bird on a flourish). Now you know if you cut your birdie out of Kraft and added a little less than one half of a red punched circle for his breast - This could BE a Christmas card! Just do one ... just one...and you'll find that more will follow! Hugs, Lesley
