Map and Card

Thank you for joining me at Jumbled Crafts where I have a couple of projects to show you today.

At Art Journal Journey they still have Maps as their theme until the end of the month so hope to see your makes for there

I took a bit of the map of our seafront and added a bit of a photograph by Valerie-she takes wonderful photographs of so many birds as well as many other things of interest. I thought of a bird's eye view and how nice it would be if the birds could know where it is safe and where they can get food.' I know I am mad as a box of frogs but I enjoy myself ' :))

At City Crafters Challenge Blog this week they have a photograph to inspire us and also the theme White and Bright

The photograph for inspiration

I took a small portion of the photograph and made a background then added a tulip image and a fancy edging in Paint Shop Pro. A plain and simple card for my stash.

Have a lovely day everyone and don't forget to vote if you are in the UK

Love Chrissie xx

  15. I'm in your box of frogs too Chrissie... the first Blackbird we ever gave a name to years ago was called 'Lucifer' - can you imagine what the neighbours must have thought with me calling out his name... which he got when Dave turned on the fountain just as he appeared to drink from it. He got soaked and he wasn't too happy and came and sat in a bush near us make that loud noise they do when they are agitated - oops!
    He looked really angry and evil. I did say sorry too.
    Love the name you called yours... that was brilliant... they certainly are on the go all the time when they have young.

    So of course I love your map - fantastic, fun and such a great idea.
    Your card is very pretty and elegant too.

    Have a lovely weekend - I'm hoping to spend it crafting away from
    all the doom and gloom on tv :(
