Birdie Congratualtations Motorboard

Well a busy weekend as I worked today and Saturday and had friends come down to visit yesterday, which has been great fun. However, I did manage to make a holder for a graduation scroll to be stored in with the graduation memorabilia.

Here is a close-up to see the details on the holder:
I embossed an A4 sheet of red paper using a free embossing folder - size 6x6. I then wrapped this around a kitchen roll tube. This was folded under the bottom and sealed to make a base. The top was folded carefully down the insides. The labels were cut from my new first edition dies, with the plain one having peel-offs added to it. The bird die is from Tattered Lace and I cut it from a scrap if patterned paper. Finally a butterfly sticker was added.

I want to add this into the following challenges:
Die cuttin' divas #318 Graduation
MAWTT #46 Graduation
Addicted to CAS #112 Graduation (I hope this one counts!!)
Kort 'o' mania #176 Challenge yourself
Avenue 613 #197 Create a container
Animal Friends #50 Anything but a card

I was given a Amerylis for Christmas and it has bloomed nicely on my windowsill.

Now I just need to find out what to do once the flowers fade!! lol.

And here is my animal contribution for this blog post.
 This is where all the noise was coming from...
 Can you tell what it is yet??? It was extremely difficult to catch her as she came out of the gap, but eventually...
We managed to catch her heading in to feed the little chicks.

Nope I still haven't got the book review written up yet - I will aim to get it done for one of my DT posts this week I promise!!

Thanks for looking at my blog,

  1. Great project and what a brilliant idea -the Amarylis is beautiful hope you manage to keep it-how lovely to have the bird with chicks-we had two blackbirds start a nest in the hedge but unfortunately the cats scared them off luckily before they had eggs
