Watch the Birdie!

Hello friends,
Sharing a card today that is a little different from my style but I so wanted to use the bird!
He/she is available from Studio 490 and can easily be painted/inked.
I've used Matting Basics A for the kraft cardstock, the pink stamped background 
(it's that texture script stamp again..yes I love it!)
I've used the smaller rectangle from Fancy Ribbon Threader so you just get that beautiful scallop edge showing.  The mask is one of the Special Touch Mini Masks with quite a liberal spraying of 
Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Rose.  All in all I would say a very pink card today!
Just in case you may not have noticed, I have another button on my sidebar - 
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L  - I'm going to be a stockist!! 
I know quite a lot of you were having trouble purchasing their products so I asked if I could stock their products here and in my crafty studio.  I received a very enthusiastic yes so I'm very happy.
Please click on the button to see what is available so far.  Lots more products to come as I take delivery, upload the photos etc.  You too can get to use this amazing adhesive!

Also, a big thank you to all of those who have booked, are in the process of booking classes -
I'm so thrilled and excited that it is all coming together now and cannot wait to meet each of you in person.
Saddened that I live too far away for some of you, I promise to create kits and you never know, perhaps one day I will hire a camper van and do a Hope and Chances crafty class tour!  
Actually I really like the sound of that....!
Take care,

Hi Christine,
your card is wonderful, and that bird is really lovely. I can see why you had to use him. Good news about the academy, so glad all is going well.
Have a great crafty day everyone.

Hi again Christine, Just had to pop back to say the adhesives look brilliant, I also watched the video for the MyStik, it was really good and I absolutely loved the papers you used, they were brilliant, I will have to try and get those as I love Vintage Shabby Chic too. Lots of love from Patricia xx

Morning Christine
This is beautiful, i saw this bird on C&C when you were on. I think i would have to use it on a canvas as he's too lovely to give away on a card!!

Hi Christine, You've really got us keen Christine, a crafty tour, that would be great. The way things are going you will have to give up the p/t day job.
I liked the card you have put on the blog today, I know you say it isnt your style, but there is a hint of you in there.Enjoy the rest of today. Crafty best wishes, Carolyn x PS I really really wish I was one of the crafters booking your workshops - I will not give up on the idea of coming down for
a weekend workshop somewhere along the line! x

I love the card, its gorgeous! I like the sound of the tour! Bournemouth neeeeds you! xx

Linda (Lindyloo) said...

Love this card Christine but I am very distracted- 'Hope & Chances Tour to end all tours! At a village or town near you'. See your local rag or crafty mag for more info! Doesn't it sound fabulous and especially if done as Chloe says, through Wales. Beautifully done in my beautiful home country. The more I see your classes the more I think I need to come down and maybe meet up with some of the lovely peeps I've met here in blogland. Now that would be perfect. You, your studio, blogfriends and crafting- that would be a scrapbook page to treasure!
Thanks for all your inspiration. Love Linda xx
