We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Happy Birday Little Sis!

Yes, another year has gone - where? - still looking for it!

I  like to come up with something different for Little Sis's birthday card - sometimes it is not a card at all!

Anyway, the paint and inks stayed in their boxes - felt bereft and a bit challenged there!  Back in the mists of time I collected a lot of patterned papers and they have been rather neglected so .....

This is an 8x8 card, and I hand drew a large bird template to cover the front; the two tag-alongs are from a Sizzix Bigz die, cut twice for each birdy, the bottom edge is folded outwards, then the 2 pieces stuck together. The tail flourishes are also a Sizzix Bigz die.

They all have googly eyes, and big bird has some rather fabulous eyelashes!!
