Relax little bird

A Day for Daisies has a monochrome challenge at the moment, they also have a new set of images called Blue Birdie, which are so cute, but this is an earlier one and I love the touch of manuscript on his wings.
He is coloured with my new alcohol pens. They are called Mirage and I really like them, not just because they are a fraction of the price of other makes.
The sentiment is computer generated, in a font which is called KG Beneath your Beautiful Chunk!
The ONE LAYER challenge at Simplicity is to use the colours of your country's flag. This is a challenge we had at "Less is More" some time ago and for some can be quite tricky. I have to admit that I don't tend to use my combination of colours often!

I would be very sorry to see the blue disappear from our flag, I think it would be a great shame if Scotland left the union. 
The performance of The Dream of Gerontius on Saturday was simply amazing. I don't ever remember singing is a concert which was so atmospheric and it was incredibly well received. On to the next lot of music now. We will be embarking on Karl Jenkins, The Armed Man.


  1. Your cards are fabulous! Love the bird.

  2. That little bird stamp is gorgeous and your colour scheme is perfect. What a clever way to use your flag colours; the chairs look bright and summery. The challenge isn't limited to using the colours of your flag but any inspiration from your flag, so that might make it easier for some.

  3. Hi Chrissie, been AWOL from your blog, for a while, but I do have a good excuse LOL.

    I've just spent a while looking through what I have missed, AWESOME cards as usual. This is a beautiful stamp beautifully coloured.

    The only problem visiting you is that you use fonts I just have to have AND you name them too, oh! well must go to get them LOL.

  4. Lovely cards Chrissie. Your birdie is fab. x

  5. Lovely cards Chrissie, I love the manuscript on the little bird, how unusual. So glad your performance went well and hope you enjoyed the craft fair, we were on the ferry at the time:)
    We have our summer concert on Saturday in the concert hall at Queen Mary's university. We are going home tomorrow but are off again next week to the south west so I'll be MIA:)
