I Love the School Holidays!!!!!

 Oh how I love the school holidays, even though the weather is not brilliant, it means I get to sit in my craft room and create!!! As you know I do love a colour challenge and the colour inspiration photograph at CR84FN36 this week is so sunny and bright, I love it!!

I was really inspired by Suzanne's lovely card and this bird cage stamp is a new purchase that I couldn't wait to ink up.  The text background is a page torn from an old book that I found in a second hand shop, I love how the pages have aged!



















After a days fun I need to get the tea on, hope your week has started well.




Supplies: Cage stamp from WoodWare.  Hero Arts CG245 Classic Fabric, S5341 Lace Background.  Martha Stewart Butterfly punch. Tim Holtz Bird Die.
