City Crafter "It's for the Birds"

Hello!

Charlene is hosting for us this week at City Crafter with her challenge 

It's For The Birds
use a Bird on your card or project

This is her lovely inspiration photo


We never see birds like this in the UK I can tell you ... It's gorgeous!

Of course we do have lovebirds ... of the human variety ... 


This is a card for some friends of mine who celebrate over 40 years of marriage this month
Those cute little birds were a gift from my sweet blog friend Stella ... I'm so glad I had them in my stash


... they are perfect for this card
The vellum 'hello' was cut from a die from PTI but I printed the word 'lovebirds' on the computer and my leaf stamp is so old I can't even remember were it came from 


Our GD this week is the lovely Maria Patrick hop over to the CCCB Blog to see what Maria has created for us together with the lovely creations from the rest of our team

I hope you'll join us this week ...

Have a good day!

I am so glad that you could use these wooden birds. I also use them a lot. Your card is lovely; I love this color scheme and your design is modern with an elegant twist. You really did a wonderful job and your friends will love this.
Hopefully you will get better weather;summer has arrived here and after the rai in the early morining the sky is blue again and it's sunny:)

Really, really pretty card Ros.
My computer is useless at the moment. Fingers crossed we can sort it out. I can't upload any photos and it's not just the fault of Blogger.

Best wishes
