Alphabet Challenge Blog

B is for bird & C is for cat. Not posted for a while as Dad has been back in hospital yet again for another operation. He is back home now & getting along ok for now. So here are my last 2 DT projects for the Alphabet Challenge Blog. The card was made using some freebie stamps from Papercraft Inspirations. Coloured in using water colours & glitter. Stamped some snowflakes in silver. Mounted the birds onto some red backing paper which I tore to make the edge interesting,  stamped the sentiment in silver ontosome more red torn backing paper.
C is for cat - didn't have much time this week with Dad coming out of hospital so made a quick tag using another freebie stamp. Stamped onto black card using white ink, stamped the good luck onto white card, mounted this onto black card. Finished off with some faux stitching & silver thread.
I hope I might have a little more time this week now everything has settled down a little - could do with some 'crafty time'.
Hope you can come over & join us on the Alphabet Challenge this week.
