Make us Smile at Try it on Tuesday

Hello Everyone and welcome to Jumbled Crafts. Thank you for calling in to see what the new challenge is at Try it on Tuesday. This week should make us all feel happy as the theme is 'Make Us Smile' Lots of ideas from the team at TIOT so pop over and have a look. You have 2 weeks to make us smile with anything you like to make so long it follows the theme and our guidelines

I made this large card by adding extra card to the inside to extend the A4 sheet of fancy card I found in my craft stash. It is now 7.5 inches by 7.5 inches. The green spotted, iron-on material and the spotted ribbon was a gift from Valerie. The purple spotted paper was a piece I have had for years

I designed this in Paint Shop Pro using the wonderful bird image I found here and I coloured it to fit in with the background. You can use the piece if you would like it for a project-just right click and save.

Love Chrissie xx
