You are my friend!

Hi there friends! Hope you are all good and ready for the weekend.
Well it's July tomorrow and I am back in socks and cardigans! It's been so cold and wet these past few days, we even resorted to having the fire on last night!!! It's supposed to be summer!!!!!

I bought the stamps that I have used on this card a while ago...I know........but I am very slowly using my NBUS . It is a Creative Expressions set Doodled Birds.
The card I made is CASED from one I saw in Samuel Taylors in Leeds (sorry don't know who had made it), but I fell in love with it and that's what persuaded my purchase (well a little persuasion perhaps).

I coloured the birds with copics and paper pieced their wings!...and a couple of the tulips. As all the layers and banner were made from snippets guess where I am heading. Yes you guessed..........the Playground.haven't been in ages so time to catch up with my mates and see if anyone has anything nice to share behind the bike sheds!!

Thank you for stopping by, I do appreciate your visits and I know that I have not been very productive of late....mojo has gone AWOL again!!! and life and everything it throws at you just gets in the way sometimes...........That's Life!!  (remember a TV program called that)

Enjoy your weekend everyone.

    Hugs Babs x

  2. Lovely CAS card, Carole. The little birds are adorable and I love the paper pieced wings. xx

  3. Those birds are so cute Carole. A lovely CAS card. I tend to do the same - buy stamps then don't use them for ages. Barbxx

  4. Fab card and love the birdies!! Great colours and pretty paper wings. Sweet sentiment. I have to own up, to buying stamps and putting them in a file and there they have stayed. Not just a few but a lot!! I have promised myself this year to use a lot of them.....well a few!! Hugs, Carol S.xx

  5. Aww these are lil darlings and look so cute with different paper pieced wings, I like the powder blue cardstock as a matt x

  6. What a great card Carol! Love that stamp set, and the paper piecing is a lovely touch. Good to see you in the Playground again!

  7. So cute. Love those sweet lil birdies!!!

  8. Gorgeous CAS card Carole and those birdies are so sweet. I know what you mean about being slow to get out the NBUS... I've got so much that I don't know where to make a start! Hope things are okay with you xx

  9. Oh this is so cute and really eye-catching! It makes me smile! I have a digital similar to this stamp.
    It was very warm here yesterday but not so great today ... I hope you are having a better day by the way!

  10. I can see why you were persuaded to get these adorable doodley birds and tulips, Carole! I love the banner sediment and matting, too! Good job paper piecing and using that NBUS!! Hugs, Darnell

  11. Carole, oh my these little chicks are too darn cute and so is your card! I love that the wings are paper priced, I used to do that all the time because I didn't want to color! Love how you did that on the chicks! Its been so hot here I could use a bit of cold and wet....want to trade :)

  12. This is absolutely DARLING Carole! Wish you could send us some chilly weather .. as it is soooo hot here! ugh! Hope you are doing well!

    Big hugs,
