It's All About The Birds!!!

 The first bird is a peacock.
Stamped and embossed in silver onto Basic Grey paper. I have then coloured areas with Tombow pens and added Stickles in Lime Green for a bit of twinkle.
After I had mounted it onto black card I felt it needed something else.....hence the diecut flourish.
I think the stamp may be Magenta but I'm not sure.
Next we have Doodle Bird snuggling up to an owl. Oh she did so love this carving. She kept kissing it and going shhhhh as if she was trying to make it go to sleep. So cute.

It was my day off today so I spent most of it upstairs and made twenty one cards. I did get a visit from Doodle this morning as she wanted to show me her new shoes and then again this evening while DS went to the docs.
A bit lost tonight as I have finished Bones. DD has given me another series to try but I'm not sure if I will like it. It's called In Plain Sight. I'll give it a go but if I don't like it I have Brokeback Mountain to fall back on.
Thanks for dropping by.


  1. Hi Sheila, it’s a long time since I’ve visited your blog but thought I would drop by tonight and see what you’re up to lately.

    Loving the peacock card, what a beautiful card. The colours look fab.

    I’m working my way thought Bones too at the moment and have just finished season four but still have some way to go to catch up I think……….loving it though!

  2. Stunning card Sheila, lovely colours.
    And what an adorable piccie, such a shame they have to grow up.

  3. Beautiful card Sheila with such lovely colours.

    Your little Doodle Bird is adorable I agree. She reminds me of my youngest DGD who loves animals and birds. I have 2 little stone ones in my garden that she cradles so gently and chats to. Who would have thought stone could be cuddly, lol!
