Well, today I am making a card using up some of my bits and pieces of paper - you know the ones - you can't throw them away ('cos they might come in useful) but they aren't really big enough to do anything major with. Anyway, as normal, I was distracted - this time it was a huuuuuge Woodpigeon sitting in the bird bath doing callisthenics!! First it was one wing then it was the other! A few sit ups - then a sit down!! The trouble was, the more he sat in there the more he looked as if he was soaking up the water! Hubby announced he would be too waterlogged to take off and went to get his camera. Needless to say he stopped exercising and posed for his pic!
So you now know why I was distracted.
However, I am going to post another card that I made for docrafts Creativity 'Craft for Life' Cancer Research Campaign. This was a while ago but I liked this little A6 card, I felt it was a 'happy' design. When I worked in the NHS I spent some time working in a Hospice for terminally ill patients. It was a brilliant place, there was always laughter and I made lots of friends. The Day Care Centre was amazing - everyone was so positive and boy did we giggle! We'd celebrate all sorts of things and I have been known to wear a red nose and antlers, Santa Hat, bunny's ears etc etc (even though my boss wasn't too keen - oops!). It was so sad when I eventually lost some of my friends so the above campaign is dear to my heart.
This card had to be placed in a cello bag so it is very simple and I didn't use any flowers.
