A Little Bird Told Me

Hello there... So lovely to have you visit!

It's stopped raining, well for now at least - it's probably only temporarily and in part due to the high winds but it's such a relief. The cats and I have been couped up, only venturing out for necessities, me not the cats! 
I spent a whole afternoon clearing things in my craft room... Actually I was looking for something and 5 hours later having forgotten what it was I was looking for, I had 5 bin bags of stuff to dispose of. I've still a way to go before everything is streamlined but it's looking better.
 
Last week was a busy one for celebrations,  DH's birthday, my friend Greta's birthday, Valentine's Day and also my SIL's birthday. I'm so glad I had a lot of AI pieces to help me along and today I have the card I made for my SIL to share with you


 There is no sentiment on this but I did add one before sending it... "A little bird told me"
It was a piece that I'd done using the AI lift technique with some sparkle here and there
 
 
The dies I used were a mix, the side pieces are in fact the little trees I used Here (trimmed down) and the branch is a Memory Box one, cut twice and pieced together. The birds are from a wreath die that I use in different ways all the time, though I can't remember where it's from.
 
 
I'm going to take advantage of the dry weather and go shopping so I'll say bye bye for now 

Enjoy your weekend

Well with all the rain you have had this beauty is sure to cheer you up with the gorgeous colors you have created! Very pretty and I am sure the receiver was in awe of it!! We have been lucky having lots of sunshine this week, but bitter cold. The weekend looks lots warmer and then next week that darn SNOW again...ugh, so ready for Spring!!

This is absolutely gorgeous Ros, and love the AI background with the pretty flowers using the lift technique and embellished so beautifully with the white die cut birds on the branches and the little tree pieces peeking out. x

Absolutely stunning Ros! The AI background is beautiful. Love the lift off technique (I have yet to try this)and the stark white branches and birds. Very pleasing to the eye! Love this! Glad to hear the rains have stopped, and enjoy your shopping!

Beautiful as ever Ros...my colours!!...I still have lots of techniques to try including the alcohol lift one! Sounds like you are on a good sort out...I find it so hard to part with stuff! Enjoy the sunshine but stay safe in the wind. xx

Beautiful colours with the alcohol inks and such a fabulous effect with the lift technique Ros. One special and unique card, which is so very striking. Hope you managed to get out and do some shopping? x.

My jaw is on the floor! You make the most beautiful backgrounds, especially when you do the AI lift technique. Incredible! The bird and branch look so pretty against it and I love the foliage border. As always, the color against the white is striking.

Oh, what a fabulous AI background, Ros! Sweet birds and wonderful dies used for your stunning card! We’ve had a few days of sunshine here and warmer temps. But, I’m afraid we will get more wintery weather soon. Take care and have a wonderful week!!
