I spread the bits out beside my computer and, inbetween answering e-mails and playing facebook games, I kept looking at them. It took a while but eventually I had one card worked out, ..... from there things seemed to fall into place and (over a couple of days) I found I had made 7 (yes seven!!) cards,.......... not bad for someone with no inspiration, LOL.
So here are 6 of them (I'll show the other one later on!) ............
On this one I added strips of my own paper at the sides, I tried one that Pat had enclosed but it wasn't quite right.
I again added my own backing paper to this one, I didn't like the plain card behind it but wanted something that was very light.
I didn't think I'd use this paper yet as it just didn't say "Nautical" to me ............ the bird didn't either really .......... but the 2 seemed to go together nicely. I love the paper even if I don't like green, LOL
This one is all from Pat ............ most of it from the parcel and the gold trim & greeting she had sent me before.
This one again I wasn't sure I'd use, but in the end I like what I did ............. I'm even happy with my colouring of the bird!!
