Birds and more birds

Sunday evening already!!  How does the weekend go so fast!  We'd a really gorgeous couple of days there, it almost felt like summer.  Saturday was a great day, we got loads of weeding done in the garden and washing dried on the line.  I also got ate alive by the midges who were out in full force after a bit of sunshine, and then I stubbed my toe on the kitchen door OUCH! (or words to that effect!)  It's blackening up nicely, but I don't think it's broken.
Anyway we're back to normal service with the weather today and the rest of the week by the look of it - rainy!!

This is one of those cards that didn't photograph well - the green is more green than it is here and looks much nicer in real life.  I've used my old Tim Holtz birdie which hasn't seen ink for a while - coloured with watercolour pencils and then popped up on foam pads.  Gummiapan leaf dies - little red sequins from stash.  Doodled border.

This card was based on Kim's card over at the Muse challenge
I don't normally share cards that I've copied, but wanted to keep a record of this one for a work mate who's got a new job.  It was inspired by Marieke's much superior card  here - I'd been stuck for inspiration for ages until I spotted this!

I love both these cards. I need to get my TH birds out again, too. They're such fun images for cards. Those gulls are pretty awesome, too. Lauren will love this card!

Great cards, love the soft colouring of your bird and the sequin 'berries' you added to your leaves. Always love seeing those gulls, been after that set for ages! And all it seems to be doing down here in Devon is raining, so you're not alone!
