Birds of a Feather!

My card today is for four challenges

First is this sketch AND colours from

second is City Crafter who want to see a 

and then Creative Card Crew   and    Crafty Bloggers  both want to see
                                THINGS WITH WINGS

Here's my card

I randomly stamped feathers on some blue card, then cut the holes with a scalloped Nestie, and layered it from underneath with some navy circle Nesties. This card was placed onto a white base with 3D pads, and the birds, goose, and sentiment stamped onto the white holes with navy, keeping them clean and simple.

Supplies :
All are Stampin' Up products unless stated otherwise
Card = Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, and navy FMS
Stamps = Wetlands and Fine Feathers
Inks = Tempting Turquoise and Midnight Muse
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, and Stamp-a-ma-jig

I have spent 3 and a half hours this afternoon, covering my huge pond with some netting. I have just discovered that my new neighbours cats have been having a feast most days (and nights) and have eaten more than their own body weights on my poor fish, so it wasn't the Herons as I'd first thought.  Monty has had a stern talking to for not doing his duties and chasing them off!!!

I'm off to my sisters tomorrow, and Nathan has told me to bring my crafting things, so I'll be back in a few days to show you what he makes. I don't know why, but when he says " crafting", he sounds like a farmer and says "craaaaftin", and it always makes me smile, Bless him.

Thanks for dropping by
