My brother's birthday card.

Now that he has the card, hand delivered by my parents today, I can show you what I made for my brother. He is a big ornathologist, even guarding some protected birds of prey when he was in the RAF. His present is also bird related, hence the card, I bought a piece of pottery with a bird in a tree to hang on his wall from the Made in Bradford on Avon shop, I wish I had taken a photo before I dashed it over to my parents, but it was all a bit of a rush, when I didn't need to take it for another day really. I hope he likes it better than my father likes his cat activity centres (about which he is still complaining).

The card features die cut shapes using a Sizzix Bigz die, I used the flower as a sun this time, and cut it in corrugated card, the bird is cut from a book page, a very old battered copy of Worzle Gummidge I picked up second hand to save it from the recycling bin. Brother is a Papermania stamp from a family set, and Happy Birthday is from a Hero Arts set. Polka dot ribbon from Fantastic Ribbons, and the spotty card was a piece of A5 I got from Payperbox pick and mix years ago.

I have entered this card in the following challenges:
Coffee, Chocolate and cards - Bring on Spring.

Anyway I will be back later with some more examples for the Quirky Challenge reminder post, I am having a battle with the ecraft which I so want to love, but it doesn't seem to want me to love it! I have had it since they came out and hardly used it becuase it always seems to fight me!

For those of you who follow my blog with Google Reader - this is about to disappear, however there is a replacement called Bloglovin, which seems to be even better. You can import all your blogs you are following from reader (do it before it goes) and it emails a daily activity update which I love because that way I don't miss anything and it is easy to scroll down through.
