I actually got some cleaning done and now it's time to post again

Off late when I am meant to clean it doesn't get done, mainly because I am always so busy and when I have some spare time I can't bring myself to clean but today I actually got a fair amount of cleaning up done and I am happy to say that I am sitting in my lounge room that is looking spotless. I just have to tackle my craft room now which is going to be a huge task but it will be done.

As I said in my last post I would have to use this sketch again and that I did with this bright and happy card. I used images purchased from Digital vintage dreams on Etsy, I love the digital images on this etsy site and have seen some more today that I would like to buy. I printed the tree so that it was overlapping the rectangle and printed the sentiment directly onto the tree. I cut out the shrub of the tree so that it went over the edge, I find that this technique always adds dimension to a card. I attached the two birds with self adhesive dimensional foam. I used some patterned paper from my stash that I am hoping to one day go through. I also stuck orange patterned paper to the inside of the card.
