I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies.

Hi , and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

I do hope your weekend is going well, and the weather is being good to you all.

Today starts another great challenge over at Allsorts, and the theme is water or blue.
So here is my entry into that challenge.

This is a 5"x7" tent style card I made.
The lovely Kingfisher image my  friend gave when we were crafting the other day, and it's from one of the Hunkydory little book series.
She also gave me lots of mirri mats too.
I added stickles to the water to give it a sheen, and a stone for the Kingfisher's eye.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really do appreciate every visit, and wonderful comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Beautiful! I've only ever seen a kingfisher once, it was so much smaller than I imagined but I'll never forget the vibrant colour!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend

Love the added embellishment touches you've added to this awesome bird. He is just gorgeous. The water sparkles so the stickles did it's job, and the jewel in his eye gleams. What a lovely village scene on your pretty card. Congrats on the weight loss. That would help my breathing problem too, I'm sure. Glad it is easing some of your aches & pains. It's hard to keep that discipline, so good for you! TFS & Hugs

Perfect in every way Jenny, blue kingfisher, gorgeous image by the way, and water too, thanks for joining us at Allsorts. Xxx

I spotted this on my tablet last night Jenny but typing on that is a faff on it and wanted to say more than just thank you.

The image is really lovely and the Kingfisher makes such a statement. Also very much like the tent design, must use this style more as it's usually only when I stick something on the wrong way. And again the inside of your card all coordinates beautifully. Thank you so much for joining us at Allsorts again, always lovely to see your work.
