 Hello bloggers and welcome back to day two of our blog launch.  We are starting out with the Birdcage die this morning.  It i the perfect accompaniment to the Parrot die set.    I decided to share this card with you so you can see some different ways in which this die can be used.  You may notice that it doesn't look exactly like it does in the packaging.  That is because I have cut the die o change the shape of it.  I have used the birdcage die to create the borders at the top and bottom of the card as well.  So it may be a birdcage but it is so much more too!  Leave your comment on this post if you would like a chance to win his one.  The next post will be on the blog at 12 noon today.  I am looking forward to seeing you back here then.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. I need to try and keep up today I only caught up with yesterday's final post at 5.50 this morning!
I'm having real problems with the blog, not being able to sometimes type a comment unless I change the settings. I'm loving all your colourful inspiration so far it's really pretty and uplifting. As my crafting seems to have come to a standstill until I can find a market that doesn't cost a fortune to set up a table plus be indoors, I'm window shopping and making lists of what I'd like, so as hard as it is will you refrain from adding my name to the website that you use to fairly pick winners names, and if and when the time comes I need to start and top up my stock I'll know exactly what's needed and it will be around for me to order. I'm loving your launch so far and I'm so pleased that you decided to take this route of designing your own brand xxx

Great card; thought you had put the wrong die with this card until I read your commentary. Totally agree that there are several possibilities with this single die. WakeyL

Morning Sue, normally I don't like seeing birds in small cages but when I read about the versatility of your die, I am a 'happy bunny'.

Hi Sue

First of all,I have to say what a gorgeous card. I am loving the vibrancy of the colours you have been using recently. This die set is yet another one of your ingenious ideas. To be able to change the shape of the birdcage is a great idea in itself, but then to snip it and use it as your borders is even better. Such great versatility.

Love Helen xxx

Pat L said...

Hi Sue
Your card reminds me of the eye exercises I had to do as a child, put the parrot in the cage was one of them!! Only you could turn a birdcage into a border, one of the reasons why I love your blog is that you show us something different every day

Love and hugs to everyone

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue
The birdcage die has been put to good use by you. Only I don't like the parrot in the cage, but would rather he sat outside it.
The card is very nice, the border especially and with the parrot outside the cage - Perfect!
Hugs
Rose

Hi Sue, I absolutely love this card, what you have done with the birdcage die is brilliant.
The beautiful flowers and foliage on the 'trellis' give it a really tropical feel.
