Had a friend over today for a bit of crafting, don't get a lot done as we spend too much time chattering!  Made a card each in the morning and in the afternoon started on making a card in box each, didn't get them finished but just have to add  the "innards" !   The background paper is a piece from the Wallflower pad and the bird is stamped on some paper from a pad called Portabella road which I found in TK Max , has some lovely papers in it.Most of the stamps I've used are from the free Birdsong collection with Creative Stamping magazine, the feathers are from Clearly Besotted.
