A (Bird) House of Cards

I think we all know that I'm powerless to resist a little house motif. It's a well established fact. So you won't be at all surprised to learn that when I saw this month's Cocoa Daisy pocket scrapbooking kit, with its little wood cabin stamp, I couldn't stop myself. My finger hit the button and, before I knew it, the box was on my doorstep. 

But, as is the way with these things, once I started to play around with my new supplies, I set the stamp to one side for anther day, because the little cards in the Day in the Life kit were calling me..


...to make cards. Maybe something in our fresh Spring air - I could even smell the sea from here this morning, and that doesn't happen very often - 


has me thinking about a few brisk walks to the pillar box.


Or maybe I'm just in the mood for some quick projects which can even make use of the polka dot tissue paper packaging. Tidy, that is (as my Welsh grandparents might have said). Tidy.

Some very pretty cards. Polka dots in any form are so cheery. I look forward to seeing what you do with the cabin stamp.

The cards turned out very nice but I was anticipating at least a teeny glance at the new stamped image ;)

Tidy indeed. I have a stack of similar journalling cards and bases to put together. Once I've moved house that is...

Wonderful cards! I'm glad I'm not the only one who hits the buy button because there's one item I just can't do without. My fave is the last card. Love the leaves poking out from behind the card, and I'm another lover of polka dots. (Just bought a great hat with a polka dot ribbon band.)

Your cards are so cute, Sian. And I LOVE that you used that adorable polka dot tissue paper on one of them. I never see a house motif without thinking of you. :o)
