A Rooster?

Hi ... did you have a good weekend? 
I spent yesterday doing jobs that I kept putting off ... you know ... hemming a few things, taking down curtains and giving them a good wash ... I still have so many things that I should do ... but working up the desire to do them ... that's another matter!

Sometime ago I bought this little spoon/tea bag dish


... and each time I looked at it ... I had the desire to make a card ... I have no idea why .. just sometimes things like that spark something in me ... So that's what I was talking about last week when I said I had to go with my creative idea ... nothing big ... I just needed to get this out my system
  I used a rooster image and  the sunflowers from The Graphics Fairy  



I still can't figure out why I needed to do this ... I mean it's not really 'me' ... is it? And who will I send it to?


Maybe one of my brothers ... it will be his birthday in a couple of months ... kind of an "old rooster" Ha!
The lovely wood look paper is a digital by Gennifer Bursett, the mesh was cut on my cameo and the chicken wire overlay I found on the internet ... and you know ... I somehow really like this whimsical card ...
Yep, there's definitely a crazy side to me ... 

I'll be back tomorrow with my DT project for CCCB ... you've still got a little time to enter this weeks' Fabric challenge too if you wish  

Have a great day

Oh it's fabulous- so on trend too! Hexagons, Cool mesh, wooden look paper. Ms Ros- too cool!! Guess you could send it to anyone ( apart from those with rooster-phobias). Hoping to catch up with you in September?- when I'll be in need of a coffee!

It's a beautiful card that whoever receives it will love! Sometimes it's "weird" ideas like this that make for the best cards.

I can't tell you why you needed to make this card, Ros, but it is beautiful! Wonderful rooster image and the attention to detail is lovely as well. Maybe it is a wish that warm weather and sunshine stay around a bit longer.

Oh you're welcome to send him to live with me Ros. He'll get along famously with my rooster/chicken collection. LOL That Cameo mesh cut is unbelievable! So delicate. Hugs!
