Spring Bird Charm Swap


A little matchbox covered with a napkin and decorated
with a metal bird charm - for a one to one swap with
Cindy - who's crafty and makes things too!


The swap was for a Spring Bird Charm
and it had to contain a game piece.

I used a jigsaw puzzle piece


I also made a card


Using some of the same napkin 
as the matchbox was covered in.

The stamps are Tim Holtz and coloured with
Distress Ink Marker pens spritzed before stamping with water.

I wish it felt like it was Spring here 
instead of being cold and wet all the time.

Roll on the Bank Holiday weekend - umbrellas at the ready!!

SSD this is very TWEET indeed. I adore how you incorporated the bird theme and the bliss of Spring. We too are now having grey drizzly dreary days. Where did Spring go so quickly? Beautiful birds who sing...

Have a super weekend.
