Little Birdie

Hello! Well my last post was a little on the glum side, so I thought I'd do another card with some of my fave things to see if it gave me the kick up the backside I need?! Well it sort of did... although I'm still waiting for my new stash to arrive... hurry up Mr Postman! Thanks for all your lovely comments on my last card, even if I wasn't happy with it.

My first stamp ever was from Penny Black, and I still love these stamps. So I chose one I haven't used much for my card... and the papers are probably some of my favourites (and they were a freebie from a magazine). I have been inspired by Domi's card at Penny Black Saturday Challenge (shape/colours). It definately helps to look around the net when we have a creative block. I'd also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Penny Black & More @ Allsorts - Springtime (notice the little robin who hasn't yet left us) 
Cute Card Thursday - Signs of Spring
Passion For Promarkers - For Mum/Female Relative

Well, that's all for today. Thank you for popping by... I shall be back when my new stash arrives!

Isn't it just rotten when your new stash takes ages to arrive, I am the same after a sinful weekend on line and just want to get my grubby mitts on it all.

On to your lovely card and what a perfect image for our theme with Hedgie sitting under the Spring blossoms.

Thanks so much for joining in our Springtime theme at Penny Black and More this month and good luck with all the fabby prizes on offer.
