Cottage Window

Hi,

I hope you are all ok ?

On Saturday I did a couple of short classes with the very talented Faye, one of them I will be using for Alan's Father's Day card.

I made this card to cheer my neighbour up, as she has recently had a hip operation and as we both get lots of birds in our garden (including woodpeckars, nuthatch, yellow wagtail, goldfinches, robin, blue tits and great tits), I thought this was perfect for her.

The Challenge I Would Like To Enter Is : 

Penny Black Saturday Friends  - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes or Clean And Simple'
