A Little Bird Told Me!

Little Bird wm

Hi everyone,

The “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog are back with our first challenge for 2012. Being a brand new year and month we have a new challenge hostess which this time round is Joanne Grzelak.  

Seeing that it is a brand new year and with Christmas not long gone, many of us have new toys to play with Joanne has given us a fabulous challenge this week.

New year….new ‘toys’… techniques. Do or use something NEW on your card/project.

The image I have used on my card today is one I received from a good friend as a Christmas present. It is from Stampavie and is called Belinda & The Cardinal, isn’t she just so cute. I paper pieced her dress & bow using designer paper. The sentiment used on the front of my card is from Kraftin’ Kimmie, I thought it was perfect with this image, don’t you think!

Here is the inside of my card, the cardinal is separate from the girl in the stamp set, so it was each to stamp it twice on the  inside of the card. The sentiments are two more from Kraftin’ Kimmie.
