Bird with Letter for Monday

Hello and welcome to my room . Hope that you and yours are well . Thank you for popping in to see me .
I must welcome new followers , thank you for joining me here .
Can't believe that we are 1/2 way through January and that Monday has come around again
Still , quite happy to be here for another Make it Monday Linky Party.
Blogger was playing up for some time since last Thursday so commenting was impossible for most of weekend . I am sorry If I missed any entries on my list .
This Party is so popular .. We have another new sponsor .

Meljen Designs Digital Stamps are giving away the lovely prize of the winner's choice of 4 single digis!
WOW, I am here to tell you to go visit , fab images and you wont be dissappointed .
Remember, to be in the running to win the prize from our sponsor this week just leave a comment for another entry. Be sure to mention you saw them on Make It Monday. The more entries you comment on the more chances you have of winning!

WE were lucky to be given some images to play with and here is my card to share, along with the inside image .

Image is Bird's Little Letter. Now this particular image is already coloured .It is the first precoloured digi image that I have used . I can imagine that these would be fab idea for when you are in need of a quick card made .

I printed image and circle diecut it out .I began with basecard of Pacific Point.I embossed a piece of Bashful Blue card with a Deco Burst folder and trimmed to just smaller than card front .I adhered this to card front with a small border and in the centre I added the image with foam tape and added 1/2 pearls around scallops.
I hope that you like it as I really enjoyed creating this .

The other DT ladies have made for you some stunning examples and are just waiting to share them with you .So if you can , pop over to their blogs and share some blog love with them too . While you are there check out who they picked as their featured entry for last week .
I did have loads of fun browsing through lots of entries .Awesome talent out there ladies and gents , I have to say and I am suitably inspired . Congrats to both of last weeks winners

What gorgeous makes we had last week - I am finding is so hard to choose a favourite! But keep them coming because I love to see them all !
Pick one I did though and it is #38 Helen

Hello Helen .
Lovely work . These are beautiful pieces . Thanks for sharing on Make it Monday
Quilling is so far from my comfort zone and my big fat fingers .When I went to pinch a tear drop shape I made tried to make once, it looked more like a puddle ..LOL . I admire the finished projects like Helen's though.
Well that's about it for this morning .Thank you to all those who share their projects with us . I cant wait to start blog browsing the Linky Party entries again this week .

I may enter this card in these challenges

Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-anne

    I'm not too great at quilling middle kept falling out, as I did not pinch it right, and then it looked like a question mark bt the time I had finished squeezing it...
