Self Portrait


When I first saw Blanche from Mo I first thought was how to fussy cut her then I realised that we share the same body mass, I'm now blonde although my hair is short and I fussy cut on most of my cards. Yes this is almost a Self Portrait.
So what about the Parrot, well I use crutches, although I should use two, I lean too heavily on one and two is suppose to keep me upright they are such a nuisance so now again I'm seen using one and my BIL often asks where's my parrot! To the point he actually found a cuddly one and tried to get it to stay on my shoulder.
I decided to use the latest Sketch and Stash sketch and the papers are Basic Grey with the Lavish Branch die with some flowers out of my stash.

  7. You looney! Super card hun, can spot one of yours in my Reading List without even seeing your name. This is fabulous. When I was on crutches after breaking my leg a kind (!) friend bought me a stuffed parrot AND an eye-patch. At least she thought it was funny!! Hugs xx
