Blue Tit. . . . . . . .


Good morning my paddling chums. Hope all is well with you.

Thank you for your kind comments and concern. I wish the consultant would give it a try without the tablets to see if I can stay in rhythm but I suppose I have to trust in his experience when he says he would bet on the A/Fib returning within a couple of months.
On the upside, the iron tablets seem to be kicking in as I am starting to feel better with energy and breathing.

Now, on my last post, I did mention blue tits (behave yourselves!!!). This was the other topper in the set that Jenny gave me so I used it to make this pretty (hopefully) little card. I have used dies in unusual ways to get the patterns by extending one and chopping into others.


Ingredients
Cream and aqua card
Hunkydory blue tit topper
SW Indian Ocean Background die (on the bottom layer,cut twice lengthwise to extend)
SB Mary Border Strip die (on top and bottom of top layer and chopped halfway                                                                through the pattern)
SW Tahiti die (half of centre die of set used on edge)
Presscut Square dies
Tonic flower punch (in the gaps)
Pearlage


I hope you got the gist of what I did. Just thought it made for an unusual frame around the topper.

On the birdie theme, this is a snap I took a couple of months ago of Mr B and Monty, before I constructed a new birdie feeding station for them.


Form an orderly queue chaps!!!

Will post some pictures of their new buffet facility next time.

Have a good day and be good.

TTFN

Ps. . . . . . Thank you Barbara. I should be seeing John this morning so I shall mention the pate to him. Its very kind of you.

  3. Judging by the last two cards, a raised frame is the answer to making a topper look really good. Will give it a go.
    Friendly Hug for John from me when you see him tomorrow please Ang.

  10. Hello Ang,
    Love what you've done with this. The edging on the top layer is inspired and sooo clever. You've made something extraordinary out of the mundane.
    It's too late, but if I'd known I'd have asked you to pass on my good wishes to John!!
    Got a shock when I saw the title. Thought you'd been going out in the altogether again to give Flash some competition ha ha.
    I'm glad the iron tablets seem to be working and hope that the next procedure is a total success.
    love Maureen xx

  15. Hi Ang

    I have to say my eyebrows raised when I saw the title of the post!! LOL..... I wondered if the neighbours had been 'at it' again

    The card is gorgeous and a work of art with the beautiful frame you've created

    It really is good to hear you're feeling a little better, keep taking the pills!

    I have shown Mr F the picture of your birdie feeding table, which he liked so much but my was he searching for a glimpse of you know what!

    Take care

  18. Hi Ang,
    oh you have done wonders with that image and your design is ace.
    Love the filgaree Agua design it is so pretty and sets off that image perfectly.
    So glad your iron tabs are working okay and making you feel a lot more bright eyed and bushy tailed. LOL.
    Love and big crafty hugs from my house to yours. Jenny L.

  20. Hi Ang
    sorry it's been a while since I have visited your blog.
    This is a lovely card using one of my favourite colours. The frame you have created is wonderful.
    Glad to hear your feeling better and I know is a pain taking the tablets but if it helps you it's all good xx

  21. Hi Ang! Sorry I have been a little behind on blog visits. Took a trip to see my brother over the independence day week so didn't get much blog reading time in. Love the way you created the frame on this adorable birdie. Your bird feeding station reminded me I have been lax in refilling my bird feeders. The birdies are probably wondering where I've been. Have a great day!
    Donna
