Blossom Birds

Hello, welcome to my blog. Hope if you are visiting you will find something to interest you.
I had an interesting day today. I got up and showered, had breakfast and tablets and then put some washing on. My friend Fran, rang up to see if I wanted to go and pick up our SU order from our friend Shirley later in the day as she was meeting in the morning with a lawyer and her 2 sisters to receive the personal items their Mum wants them to have as she has gone into a nursing home and they will have to sort out her house and sell things so they can rent the house out to provide income for her to be in the nursing home. She was also going out with a group of friends from a country craft group to a movie and asked if I wanted to go to that. She picked me up and we had just enough time to get some lunch and meet the "Chooks & Chicks" girls at the cinema. The film was reasonably good and when we came out we all went to have coffee in the little cafe next to the cinema. It's about 30 min trip from home and by that time the traffic was getting quite heavy. We had to drop in some things to her Mum at the nursing home, so stayed about 10 mins there and then drove out the other side of town to pick up our SU order. So it was about 6 p.m. before I got home. Finally remembered the clothes on the line and had to go grab them off the line after dark! I don't like spiders so would have preferred to bring them in during the daylight before the spiders come out to play!!!!
Well onto my card for today. I've used a pink cardstock from my stash for the base, a layer of SU Wisteria Wonder and then I cut 3 strips of a DP called Wedding Stripes, not sure who by because it was on the back of the paper and I had already stuck that piece down. I cut a white nestie shape and stamped the image which is a clear stamp called Blossom Birds by Penny Johnson Vintage - Stampavie. I used Basic Brown ink and coloured with Copic Markers. I wasn't impressed as 4 of the markers I used all ran out of ink while I was colouring this one and it was really difficult finishing it off. Got there in the end!!! I traced around the outer edge of the nestie die and cut it out in SU Pear Pizazz - added a sentiment from Petite Pairs using a green Marvy Marker and punched it out with a circle punch and then mounted it onto a green punched scallop. I added some lines with a purple marker and some white dots with a gel pen. The inside has a layer of Wisteria Wonder and two different size nestie diecuts.
