I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #2

This is my card for this week's challenge on Stamptacular Sunday which is "for the birds". A bird had to be somewhere on your project and as I'm not really a bird person I thought I would struggle, but then I remembered this "Gorguss" girl stamp and I was saved!

Cuttlebug used for circles. Punch for flowers, centres and border.

Image: Gorguss Girl from Funky Kits coloured with promarkers from Secret Crafter
Paper: K & Co "Sparkly Sweet"
Sentiment: Hero Arts set from Secret Crafter
Ribbon and brads from my stash
