Watch the Birdy

We bought my Mum a bird table for Christmas and ever since we have all been watching it intently to see if any new birdies would come to visit.  It has taken them a while to get used to it's presence and on Friday my patience was rewarded with an array of visitors to our garden!  It was a great opportunity to play with my new camera and my fancy telescopic lens too, so I thought I'd share with you a few pictures I captured.

Fancy New Camera...

I have finally invested in a proper fancy camera, which I am still getting my head round how to use!  I thought it was about time I got one really as I'll be able to take better photographs of my work which will hopefully make them more appealing.  I thought I'd show you some of my new Female Birthday card designs Iwhich are now stocked in No12, in Marple.  Floral fabrics, cute buttons and a lovely sprinkling of glitter too!  Next up is Valentine's Day, so I'm busying away with card designs ready for the 14th February!

Happy 2012!

I'll start the year with a few last bits of December, those being two birthday cards I made for friend and family.  My teacher friend Steph made my day one week in December when she told me how much she liked my stag sketch (seen here).  So I made it into a birthday card for her!  And she loved it, yay!

And this is the second I made for another December birthday.  Gorgeous ribbon, lilac diamante, sparkle, mother of pearl button and hand stamped message.
