Tag Tuesday

The theme for this week is..."Birds"

I was going to use some of the photos I took at Henley but I found an old Daily Mail children's annual (in a charity shop) that just happened to have a photo heavy article on "Birds and their Nests". This is what I came up with:

I covered a 7 Gypsies "naked pocket" in Martha Stewart paper and then fussy cut the chaffinch from another sheet. The title was cut from the annual.
I stamped the tag with a TH bird in sepia and some delicate grass stems in green, then pasted on the pics of a chaffinch and its' nest. The back of the tag features a song thrush (but no stamping).

I had some cards to make at the weekend - can only show one at the moment:

Papers are from scraps of "Addison" by K&CO...all my lovely blue papers are running out!! "Sketchy Lady" is by Clarity Stamps, coloured with promarkers, and the bow is from my stash.

I missed Scrap Club on Saturday but did manage a LO at home:

I used BG "Curio" papers and embellishments plus some old buttons from my Mum's button box. The title is all about DH's "R & R" after his heart attack - the monster jigsaw that took over the table is in the middle photo!! lol
I'm pleased to say that it has ...gone!! Another jigsaw has been done and that too has...gone!!! Table clear for crafting....yay!!

You've been a busy girl, Susie. No more jigsaws to be allowed in the house for a month. No, make it 2 months. In fact, can't it be done in the shed?!

I like the tag being in a pocket - kinda 2 for the price of one! Lovely images too, what a perfectly timed find :o)
