Bird cage

Back once again from my travels, but no time to rest as I had to be off and out early this morning for a meeting. Amongst the usual treats of dirty washing and fresh ironing that is usually waiting for me on my return was also a surprise package from youngest Beez, who is the chef. Nestling in the fridge was a bag of fresh scallop roes. These are not considered worthy of Michelin starred dining and usually get discarded. However, to me, these are food of the gods. Warmed through and spread on toast, add in a glass of something bubbly and you are in heaven. Can’t wait for my tea tonight!!

Today I am sharing one of my Gecko Galz Design Team samples that uses this month’s new releases plus those of Vintage By Me who the Galz have teamed up with for this month’s cross promotion.



The main image with that cute little robin is from Vintage By Me and, digitally, I’ve popped it inside a vintage frame image from the Gecko Galz Frame collage set (this is an early release rather than being from this month). The label is also from Vintage By Me and then I’ve used two papers from the Floral Symphony paper pack by the Gecko Galz. This is such a pretty paper pack and that paper on the bottom layer is my new favourite and you will be seeing it a lot.



I’ve added lace and organza rose ribbon trim and some lovely fondant pink ribbon from my Really Reasonable Ribbon club selection.


The little birdcage came from Etsy and the finishing touches are some tiny pink rosebuds and some gold glitter.


The weather here  in the UK has started to show signs that summer is on the way and this card fits perfectly with that! I am going to share this over at Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog as my final entry for their Ribbon, Lace and Twine challenge.



Thanks for buzzing by.

    • Thank you. Glad it’s over but I’ve ended up with a poorly arm which is causing me problems when using my lap top so am keeping it to a minimum. Afternoon tea today though 🙂 xx

  2. Beautiful card, I see we both fell in love with that paper, it is stunning, especially used with the beautiful image and embellishments you added here. ~Diane

    • I absolutely adore that paper and want to show it off all by itself too. So many lovely papers and too little time!

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
