Red white and blue

Morning All 

I will post tomorrow about my day with using the gelli plate 
yesterday - still need to work on the finished card.... but just to say I did have fun. :) 

But for today I thought I would show you my new stamps 
from Rubbernecker.

Here is my card

I used the rubber stamps with 2 different blue watercolour pens - giving a big "huff"
and stamped the image onto a scrap of one of my background papers.

Mounted onto a red scrap of card and onto a card blank - note the blue line
around the "topper" I used my watercolour pen to make this.

Added a sentiment which I coloured lightly with red around the edge 
and stitched with red watercolour nib around.
Mounted onto a blank white card. ..... 

Following the theme of Red White and Blue.

I would like to enter it for the following 


Thought I would share with you an update on 
the pheasant 

Here is the nest as of Tuesday maybe you will notice that 
there are more eggs .... !!!

Yesterday we had a shower of hail stones and made the garden all white !!

Best get on and finish my next card from all the gelli card stuff I made yesterday
so much for reducing my stash ..... it has grown rather!!!

Thank you for popping by and I look forward to 
you coming over again.

    That's an awful lot of eggs for a pheasant - how do I know, my Dad used to breed them. Hope we get to see some of the youngsters when they hatch
