Anything but Birthdays


Morning everyone, time for another challenge at Allsorts (actually a day late as Blogger decided not to post this yesterday and I was out all day so unable to sort the issue) after a busy Birthday week Mervi would like to see 'Anything but Birthday's' as her theme. We have two prizes, a Tattered Lace die and a very pretty 8x8 paper pad.

I made this card for friends who are keen ornithologist's and off to Asia for several weeks to study and photograph Pheasants. Oxides for the background AALL and Create sets Textured Florals and Pheasant and washi tape which provided the word journey. Pheasants are natives of Asia being brought to Europe by the Romans and in turn to the UK by the Normans in the 11th Century.......my history lesson for the day!

Somehow I seem to have something for the Snippets Playground again, well to be honest I heard about the celebrations this weekend so couldn't miss out.


White offcuts, always have so many when I cut a batch of card bases and the yellow flowers are transfers which were on the Create and Craft Oakwood show the other day, this was one of my DT samples.

As this post it so late  half the weekend gone I will just say have a good Sunday.

Gorgeous card using one of my favourite stamps … fab use also of the pheasant image. Glad late publication was due to a technical issue and that all is ok with you 😀

Beautiful stamps and fabulous background stamping- never knew that about pheasants! My 'pheasant' story is that once when holidaying in a farm cottage the owner told us not to let our Great Dane chase any pheasants that came into our garden.... yeah right!!! Fortunately the only one we saw in the garden was while she was sound asleep after a long walk!

Una card bellissima per i tuoi amici appassionati di ornitologia, come sempre hai usato i timbri in un modo stupendo e il washi tape è davvero perfetto per augurare loro buon viaggio! Non sapevo tutte queste cose sui fagiani, grazie per la lezione di storia naturale! :)
Ti auguro di trascorrere giornate memorabili e meravigliose con la tua famiglia...
Un grande abbraccio
