Thank You

Hello and welcome back to the CR84FN color challenge.  I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays.  The team is back with some fabulous inspiration to get you back into your craft room.  I decided to use this darling birdcage and bird die-namics from MFT.  I am a huge birder and enjoy watching the birds visit my feeder daily.  When I was a little girl, my grandmother was always pulling out her little bird identifier book and telling me what the birds that were at the feeder.  About 10 years ago this became a big interest for me as well.  I am happy to say that my son can tell you what all the birds are that come to our feeder and can identify them by song as well.  He can even tell if they are juvenile or adults and male or female.  That makes my heart happy.


I like to make some cards and leave the outside without a sentiment just  in case that I need one that I don't already have made.  I only have about 100 cards laying around but who's counting?  Not me!


We are also welcoming Lisa Snowdy as guest designer for the month of January.


I am entering this into the MFTWSC sketch.  It is always such a great way to put all my MFT goodies to good use.

I have something like 200 cards piled up, so hey - you're doing better than me!! I have decided my biggest goal this year is to SEND my cards.

I commented on FB, and I'll say it again here: This is BEAUTIFUL!!

Heather - this is just fab! There are so many lovely details - the pattern paper, the stitching and the rolled roses are super. I do like the little heart and button too.

I really enjoyed reading about the birds. I learnt a lot about UK birds from my step-father and I really enjoy sharing it with my daughter.
