Challenge #272 at Shopping Our Stash is ~~ Duck, Duck, Goose (use birds and/or feathers on your project. Well I knew it would happen one day but had my fingers crossed it didn't....the weather was so damp and rainy we didn't go to the cottage for the weekend and even though I have oodles of stuff at home there were so many things I really needed so we took a drive Sunday afternoon to pack up most of my craft things as the Canadian Thanksgiving is October 10th and we are spending it at our daughter's house so no cottage again. Soon it will be time to winterize it and say "see you in the spring"
Now on with the challenge.  After a lot of searching and thinking I chose a Winter Bugaboo image.


I love this little trio of birds and have had it a couple of years the embossed cardstock was in my ufo box the newest item is the adhesive roll of burlap trim, it worked perfect for this sketch #80 from 
The Challenge @ Always playing with Paper


Close up of the sentiment that I stamped directly on the patterned paper.


Finished inside, I can't figure out who's sentiment this is.

Catch the Bug challenge ~~ October Anything goes.




Thanks for stopping by and head over to the Shopping Our Stash and see what the rest of the design team have made for the challenge.

Hello Barbara: This little birds look so sweet huddled together to keep warm, the one in the middle seems to be waiving you goodbye. How awesome you have your little cottage in the woods to spend some time among Nature, you'll be back there very soon.
Love the glittery ornaments on that branch, awesome detail on this sweet card.
Oh, and just so you know, you are NOT the only one who doesn't have those quirky bird stamps, I think I will get them, can't resist anymore.
XO
