A little birdie told me...........

After yesterday's marathon post, this one should be pretty quick to write :) With little time to craft, and more time spent on writing, I came up with a quick card when the urge to stamp became too much:
Yet another 'inking for the first time' - this set was one I came across during the big ferret round looking for a suitable stamp for the previous Less Is More challenge of 'Birds'. It lost out when I decided to use another stamp so I thought it should have a little outing anyhow!

I used:

- 5" x 5" white square card stock

- stamps from the 'You're so Tweet' Personal Impressions set designed by Marion Emberson - inked using 'Rich Cocoa' and 'Ivy' Brilliance ink pads

- Josy Rose red heart nail head

Kept it simple, job done!

  4. Morning Di, gorgeous card! I am beginning to really love these one layer cards, they are so simple but effective. The heart nail head just finishes it off perfectly :)

  5. Such a pity you didn't enter this as well, I love it. Fabulous tree and a great idea with the nail head.
    This little birdie is telling you it is my birthday today too, so this card could be for me.

  12. Hello Di,

    Cute little card. I'm disappointed to say that I didn't get any crafting done this weekend. Oh bother.


  13. Fab card Di, love that swirly tree :o) Love your little story on your latest post too! Lisa x

  14. Perfect! Don't know how you do it. I seem to be piling on more and more stuff on my cards lately, one layer is not in my play book.
    I think I've fixed my computer. Now that I can click on the links I hope to find the time to go back and see what everyone had to share in the play ground.
