Message From Above


HAPPY NEW YEAR - 2014 / I hope you all had a good / safe one.

OMG wasn't a certain Mr G Barlow A-M-AZING last night, i was singing (well trying to, with a cough every other word !!), i personally thought the fireworks in London were a bit OTT - i thought Dubai and Sydney were the best. Before we left for Yorkshire yesterday, I was starting to get card making withdrawals, so i made one, but didn't have time to upload it - hence why i'm doing it today.

Today's stamp is one i've had for a while and it always been passed up for another stamp, but after seeing there were a couple of bird themes, it fitted perfectly.  The papers are : First Edition - 'Birdsong', the frame the image is in : Marianne D - 'LR0240 'the edge die is : MB - 'Meridian Border', the fence and 1 of the birds : Marianne D -  'LR0205', the other bird and ivy is : Marianne D - 'LR0206', flowers : EK Sucess Punch.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Sweet Stampin' - where the Challenge is 'A Little Bird Told Me'

Bunny Zoe's Crafts - where their last Challenge of the year is 'Wings'

Marianne Design Divas - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes' - and the 3 dies i've used are : LR0240, LR0205, and LR0206

Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'Pick Of The Year' and i've chosen the Challenge from 20th August - which is 'Flower Power'

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would kindly like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x
