I'm back! (Not that I ever really went away)

Ooh, sorry for my terrible blogging lately – have never been so lax! It’s partly because I’ve been so busy doing workshops, preparing for Convention (it’s this week!), having visitors and generally getting on with life, partly because I haven’t had time to make anything new recently (apart from my Convention swaps) and partly because it’s always so blooming dark that I rarely get an opportunity to take photos of my projects anyway! Managed to snap some this morning though and here’s one of them... which uses the oh so lovely Aviary stamp set, which I totally love.

I’ve stamped the bird cage in Basic Black, then stamped the little bird in Rose Red and topped the cage with a Basic Pearl. It’s a very simple card, but I really like it – especially the dotty background, which I have been forced to stop using because it’s rightful owner demanded its return. Doh!
