GD for Digital Delights

A while ago I was asked to make a card for Digital Delights. Since Christmas is over... well making Christmas cards that is, I decided to start on some Valentines cards. This Digital Delights image is called Love Birds. I have noticed on a few of the blogs that I stalk  "birds" are making a comeback for Valentines Day cards. Speaking of birds... one of my hunter Burmese cats decided to catch a couple sparrows today.... guess who's bed he put them under... yep Miss 9yr old's eeeeewww she was not impressed!

Tiddly Inks - Little So and so

OK, so here is a quick, nice and easy card today using an image from Tiddly InksThis cutie is called "Little So and so". I wanted a card that didn't have any "fuss" on it, because I am giving this card to a 3yr old boy.
This may be just about the last card I will get on here before Christmas, as I still have baking, wrapping and organising to do!!! So if I don't get back to blogland... have a very Merry Christmas, if you are driving anywhere, take care on the roads, if you are staying home like me, enjoy! Thank you for visiting me this past year and taking the time to comment.

Merry Christmas
