Book an Owl!!

This is a book box, using different papers and colours, 
right on the outside edge of my normal go to colours!!

On my screen it looks grey but it is actually
black and Denim blue. The papers are from 
Anna Marie Designs. I bought both the 6" x 6"
and the 8" x 8" pads. 
So the cover is using the 8" and
the little birds I cut them from the 6" pad.

I fussy cut the little birds, even their tiny beaks!
I now know why it got the name 'Fussy cutting'!!
I am not a lover of a white edge. I won't even use dies to
cut detailed images. It's very therapeutic too.

It's another sad day today, as I have lost another friend.
She was in her 90's and had been very poorly with
a nasty Cancer. 
She had been a friend for about 29 years and loved her to bits!!

That is 3 friends I have lost within 10 days. 

When is this going to stop?!!!

Hope you are all staying safe and well.

Big hugs,

Thinks about you.

Hi Carol

So sorry to read that you have now lost your friend too. Though she will never be lost completely because she will live on in your heart for always.

Love your project very much. You really are a very neat fussy cutter!

Thinking of you Carol.

Love and hugs
Jules xx
