First post of the year.

I hope you all had a good Christmas and a happy New Year, I know I did even though we have water running through the ceilings in most of the rooms! But that as they say is another story and you came to see what the first challenge over on the Make My Monday blog is, not to listen to me moaning.

We are starting the year of with Nature as the monthly theme and this weeks challenge is Birds.

So for this theme I used a great stamp from Paper Artsy and covered it with Diamond Glaze. The card blank is covered with paper from the V&A collection by Papermania. I then added a strip of torn velum and some ribbon, before adding the bird on foam pads to give a bit of depth. I made a tag and stamped the sentiment from a set of stamps I got free with simply Cards and Papercraft a long time ago, made by Pink Petticoat. I hope you will join in and look forward to coming and seeing what you have done.

Thanks for reading,
