WWC 323 - Cathy's Challenge : All Things Feminine


Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Watercooler Wednesday and it's my turn to host a feminine themed challenge!

The design team have some wonderful cards to inspire you, so I hope you can play along. All of the details are on the blog.

 I made this card for my Mum who loves birds. She is in a nursing home and since we are back in lockdown, she can't have any visitors.
Not many cases at all here in my part of northern NSW, but better to be safe than sorry! 

The bird is a retired Stampin Up punch coloured with distress inks.
The flowers are also a punch and the greenery is from a diecut coloured with distress inks that I snipped leaves from!

I'm linking up to these challenges:

I hope a bird resting after a flight is ok :) !

Unicorn Challenge, anything goes

Stampin Up bird punch; Carl flower punch; Memory Box woodland branch die; distress inks; Crafts 4 U stitched rectangle die; Casual Fridays Mum's the word sentiment;
versafine ink & clear ep;

Sorry that the lockdown prevents your Mum from having visitors Cathy but she will love this oh so pretty card and wonderful colours too. Our son lives a few miles outside Sydney so he is locked down too, although it would appear that most of the cases are out west and like you there are hardly any cases where he is. Going by how it has been over here, when the numbers of vaccinations rise sufficiently things will improve. x

Oh I am sorry your Mum is on lockdown. I think this whole thing has been worse on the elders in the nursing homes.

I'm so sorry to hear that your mum is unable to have visitors Cathy and hope your beautiful card will comfort her. I love the way you shaded the bird to give it dimension and I love the shape of your branch and the way the sentiment tucks into it. Vicky x
