Hi folks. These 2 are a bit different colour-wise to what I usually do - I've gone a bit brighter!!!
Here is my card for the PTW challenge - Making Waves "the challenge is to use scallops or zigzags (or both if you are really keen). Well I must be keen cos I have used both- the scallops for the frame and the zig zags for the fake stitching. I got the lovely Dottie download from Charmed Cards and Crafts - http://www.charmedcardsandcrafts.co.uk/ - I just love them. I coloured the picture in with Dovecraft Brush Markers and the paper for the 'frame' is my own which I did on the computer. The ribbons are from the fabulous Poppicrafts and as always there is a bit of Glamour Dust here and there lol xx

Same Dotty download here. PP dots and Mad About Cards checked papers and the buttons and scrap of ribbons I found in my stash - no idea where they came from - sorry!! I used watercolour pencils on these so they look a bit 'softer'. Thanks for looking xx

Hi Dawny....Just thought I would pop by and say have a good weekend. No more sparrowhawks at the moment, although we have had another pile of feathers, this time though I didn't see anything. Would they be feeding their young this time of year???
Hope all your little family are happy and well.
