Birds of a feather .... CCCB

Good morning ... did you enjoy your day yesterday?? I hope so ...

Today I am back with the new challenge at City Crafter Challenge blog which has been set for us by sweet Kirsty ... and it's "Birds of a Feather" .... which means you can make a card, tag, ATC ... or even a project ... as long as it features something related to birds ... such a lovely challenge and our Guest Designer this week is Nadia Cannizzo a very talented lady ... please check out her blog ...
As always we have a prize on offer and our generous sponsor this week is Linda Nitahara  (click on the link to visit her Etsy shop) ... 
Right ... on to the challenge and my project ... (I actually did 2 things) first I altered a birdcage  


This was quick and easy to do ... the cage is in fact a candle holder which only cost a few pounds ...


The flowers on the base are a mix of plastic and material flowers and the main stem of leaves and flowers is actually one of those circle decorations that goes around a candlestick ... I always keep everything like this and when I change my decor ... these things are always put to good use


See what my little robin is guarding? ... yep her nest and eggs (left overs from Easter and some feathers in there for good measure) ...


The nest and base flowers have been glued into place... as has the robin and the top arrangement is held in place with fine craft wire ... 
Next I made a card ...


MF Papers for the background ... the bird is a digital from Vinnie Pearce ... printed and fussy cut ... the tag is made from another digital image from Etsy ... ribbons lace and roses from my stash 


That paper even has a birdie poem on it ... tweet!

I really enjoyed this challenge (Thanks Kirsty) ... and I hope I have given you some inspiration ... hop over to the blog for more eye candy ... and come and join us this week 

Have a great day

Till soon
