Centre Fold

I think this is going to be me in 40 years time, a perfect centre fold, woohoo! LOL, ROFL!!

Don't you love this image!?? I know I do. It's from Art Impressions, and she's called Jean. She is one of the many images my friend the chicken, Jeanie, sent me. There is no purpose for this card, but I have a feeling it's going to turn out to be exactly what someone is looking for.

I coloured the image with my prismacolor pencils, blended it with sansador (gamsol), and cut it with a nestie. This range of dies have only one size, no small and large, so to get the mat to be just slightly bigger than the image I used the same size die I cut the image with and then used my craft knife to cut around the outside of the die, so I ended with a mat just slightly bigger than my image, perfect.

I took my poor little African Grey, Pepi, to the vet this morning to have his wings clipped. He is not hand reared so he bites, the poor thing has to be wrapped in a towel in order to prevent that. He was so not a happy little bird by the time we finished with him. At least now I don't have to worry about him flying away. How on earth would he survive, and he LOVES his daily granadilla (passion fruit for some), if someone was to catch him how would they know that he needs to get one every morning, lol!

Thanks to those of you who leave me comments. It us such fun to get them and read what you all have to say, some make me laugh out loud! I wish there was time to visit all the blogs out there and leave everyone comments. I do appreciate it when people take time to leave me one.

I am off to go and appreciate the sun. I am so happy we have sunshine today and not more rain. See you all soon.
