Week 30 at Make My Monday

Morning  all welcome to the first challenge of 2012 at 
Make My Monday.
the January theme chosen by Fliss is
and to start us off Fliss would like us to use
Here's mine
This is an 8x8 card... my first attempt at this size. I've seen lots of inspirational art work using this size so thought I'd try it. Hope you like it.
The main image is a freebie download from 
Cemerony Share There are some gorgeous images on this Blog. Julia also sells art work on Etsy.

I like the way this bird from Crafty Individuals CI-256 is taking flight off the card.
The Air mail is from one of CI's freebie packs which I received recently with an order... thank you CI
The other little bird and the words are from a lovely set of Inches...
can't remember who makes them :o(
The round image is  from the download.
The bird on a branch is from Stampers Anonymous.
The feather stamp is from Impressive Images Essential Elements coloured with DI's. You can just see some script which also came from this set.
I cut out the birdcages on the smaller images .. They were re sized before printing.
The birds in the grass image and the sentiment are from  PaperArtsy.
I used several DI's to make the background and to colour the stamped images.
The little collection of post cards is also from Impressive Images.

Pop across to the MMM Challenge Blog and see all the DT's inspirational  art work and the gorgeous stamps Fliss has donated for the January winner.

 As usual  I look forward to visiting your blog to see your interpretations.

Blogger has been playing up during this post... it's made this post a bit of a pain to complete... but alls well... nearly.

Take care and very best wishes for 2012.

Maybe Mr Blogger has been over-indulging LOL!!
This is a brilliant card and I love the theme this time so will be clearing myself a space to get started. Not tried this size of card myself but might have a go. You've certainly used a wide selection of stamps.

A gloriously detailed card Suzi - Jacqueline xx

Fliss said...

This really is lovely Sue. The vintage style is just gorgeous and all the elements work so well together. I find 8x8 really useful sometimes Especially when it's a struggle to get everything on the card!
Wishing you a Happy New Year and a great 2012.
Hugs, Fliss xx
