Two little birdies

This card is inspired by a mug some friends brought me this week which was covered in colourful parrots.
I used Tim Holtz Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint and Honey to created the background and stamped some music over the top. I added some stickles and some liquid pearls for a bit of bling.
This card is for the following challenges.

Lady in Red

Morning folks what a horrible day all damp and misty and now starting to rain, hence the poor picture quality. Definitely a day to stay indoors and craft. So I went to the hospital yesterday where the doctor took a hoover to my nose not the most pleasant  of experiences but at least it's brought a little relief for now. I have to return in another two weeks to have yet more horrible things done so not the good news I was hoping for. Think I need to do plenty of crafting to take my mind of it all if only my hands would work today.
Stamps are from Darkroom Door backing paper was made using these stamps and  Old Paper and vintage photo distress inks. Dress is coloured in Festive Berries  and old linen distress ink. Dress has been decoupaged to give a bit of extra dimension.
This card is for the following challenge  - Anything goes.

Have a great weekend.

Welcome Home

Yeah I'm back well of sorts. I know I promised to be a better blogger this year but I ended up in hospital having an operation on my sinuses which turned out to be a bit more serious than at first thought. At least I am feeling a little better now and am hoping that the doctor will have good news for me later in the week, so fingers crossed. Trust me to get something that is not simple to treat and it's played havoc with my Fibro/CFS.
So this is a card a friend asked me to make to welcome her neighbours back from a long trip abroad.
The cute house stamps is from Imagine That. Embossing folder from Stampin Up
