Hello birdies

Mooncalf recently posted about a new magazine, Handmade Living, in which an article was written about her. Last month was pretty tight, so I couldn't justify buying anything like that, so I went out and found a free copy on the internet. A little naughty I guess, but what can you do! Anyway, I 'flicked' through it and something caught my eye: a card with little button birds. Sounds weird like that but I loved it and knew I'd have to make it straight away. So as soon as I got home I got these wooden buttons out (bought ages ago and never used...), some felt and a black pen.


How sweet is that? That wasn't enough for me though, I had to get those little cute birds out of my system. Cue the love bird card.


How amazingly cute is that?! I made it for Boyfriend's sister's wedding anniversary, and now I'm just wondering who else I can make this for... I'll definitely be making some more before I send it off so I don't forget how I did it! So easy, so different, I just love it!

Argh they are super cute!! Will try and remember to store these away in the memory bank to crack out next time I make a card!
