Little Birdy Canvas

Good morning, it's lovely and autumnal here in Sussex today. Hope the weather is fine where you are. Sorry I have been absent for a few days, I have been busy demoing over the weekend, at Alexandra Palace in London at The Stamping & Scrapbooking Show. WOW, it was very busy but such great fun! It was wonderful to meet lots of my blogging buddies and I haven't laughed so much in ages! Thanks to all that popped by the stand and grabbed some bargains.

I am still having some computer problems, so this is a test run, lol! I wanted to share this canvas that I made recently, I have only just found the photo whilst playing with my poorly pc. The lady who did the main design is the lovely talented Cary, I have done my own take on her design, ie. moved flowers etc. All the elements are from Stamping Up. I really loved the colours and of course, the little birdy punch had to come and live at my house, lol! I am really loving using canvasses and have recently started a larger one for Jess' bedroom wall, it is an A4 size and of course, it is a work in progress, but am enjoying altering them and taking my time to do so.

On a very sad note, we had to say goodbye to our little man Carrie yesterday. We have had him since a baby, as you may know, he had been poorly for a few weeks. Thanks to all of you who sent get well messages to us. Peeps that know us well, know that our animals are part of the family so today is a very sad day for us.
