Shabby Chic Birds


I have been really bad and haven't used my Simon Says Stamp kit and its full of hearts and Valentines, whoops a bit late for that. But I did like the vintage paper included in the kit which worked well with the papers. Somehow this card was born.
I distress the edges and inked them too. Added the Fresh Foliage from Memory Box and some flowers from my Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch and couple of Songbirds from Simon Says Stamps. Along with the sending die and the sketchy banner sentiment to finish. My flower pot was just cut out of scrap of brown card free hand.
I didn't turn the PC on yesterday when we got back now I'm wishing I did cos this post took ages to do.
It was lovely to see MIL returning to her normal self with the help of the carers she has now put a bit of weight and starting to move more easily round the house long may it continue.
Someone was looking after us on Saturday we must have literally missed the awful pile up on the M40 by minutes.
