A Little Bird Told Me...

This week has been unbelievably busy - and much of it has been unplanned responses to other people's requests for help. I don't mind - I have had a lot of fun. But the 100 items declutter is rather falling behind [and Kate has got up to nearly 400 items] Emergencies notwithstanding, I hope to spend today adding to my score. 
I was able to get some greetings cards made yesterday - there are a number of important birthdays happening around now [my family and friends, not Her Majesty's Official Event. I don't have the energy to make her a card]

I wanted a very simple bird shape for my die cut machine - and found the exact thing on eBay. Having first checked these Fiskars Fuse ones would work on my Sissix Big Shot [they will] I was able to buy this one at a fraction of the regular price. I like the way they come in a neat carry case too. I have yet to use the letter press facility and ink them up.

I made just a few cards this week. Later I will explain the real purpose of this ornithological purchase

I have used different papers for body and wings, flipped the papers to get mirror images - and on the smaller card, given the bird two wings. These are quite simple. I've decided not to go overboard with embellishments. An M&S Gift card fits inside very neatly!


  1. Glad to see you checked you could use the die with your Big Shot. I still have a rather expensive die to sell...I must get on EBay!


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
