CR84FN Challenge

Just 4 more days till I leave for a two week break ... 
Apart from DT work ... I have 9 friends and family celebrating birthdays in the next 2 weeks ... Getting gifts and cards organised and posted takes up a lot of time and I hope I haven't forgotten anyone ... 

For my card today I used the colours from the latest challenge over at CR84FN 


These are such lovely colours together ... I confess a little of a challenge for me ... but I do love the results
My card is for my friend and neighbour Helen ... 


Can you tell she likes birds (well all animals really ... )
I used Basic Grey paper for the background and the music paper is Marianne Design which I distressed with my scissors ... for the life of me I cannot find my distressing tool


The postcard was cut from a sheet of Prima paper and the little bird is from K&Co... My butterfly was cut from leather look fabric on the Sizzix 


... and everything else is from my supplies ...

I don't know how I will cope without creating for two weeks ... and if I don't get internet access I can't even come visit you ... 
Don't think I am ignoring you ... I will catch up when I get back ... promise!

Have a beautiful day and keep safe
