My name is blue canary



A big shout out to all you 'they might be giants' fans out there for today's title :D another glorious day here in Swansea land. As you can probably tell I am now feeling lots better and have had a fab indulgent weekend in my crafty corner :D This was another one of those cards inspired by a left over piece of something, this time being a bit of card stock after being put through my cuttlebug to cut out a little topper for some book marks I have been putting together. I liked the wonkiness of it if you know what I mean.

I would like another big shout out (a la Stuart & Mark on radio 2) ayyyaahhh to two wonderful blogging buds Kate & Sara who have very kindly sent me a blogging award. I really do appreciate them, especially coming from great talents like yourselves :D

Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx

OMG it's another cutie birdie!!! Not only that, but it's fab that you've got a They Might Be Giants tune as your title - particularly love their song for the Malcom in the Middle ;D
Anyways, your card is fabby as always m'dear, such a clever way to use a negative shape too!
Hugs,
