Before I start, I want to say hello to my German visitors.
Hallo Deutschland! Freut mich sehr, dass sie bei mir reingucken!
My baby rehab season has started, almost exactly on the same day as last year. Not that I had a break, I overwintered several animals which meant daily feedings and cage cleanings. Since last week Thursday I have been feeding again around the clock, three tiny gray squirrel babies,
Cottontails continue to have their litters in the most impossible places, and nuthatches around our house loudly declare their territory and advertise for a female. Our little koi pond is at last ice free. Krokus and snow drops are in full bloom.
Well, all-nighters make for lots of time to craft, and when I was at JoAnn the other day to stock up on some card stock colors I walked around, just browsing. Tiny fabric remnants gave me an idea, so I bought some burlap and a greenish fabric, then unearthed some fabric at home.
Take a look what I've come up with.
Splinting that was a challenge, but I succeeded and he healed up just fine. He is almost double the size in the picture, he weighed a whopping 8 grams when he first arrived.
The picture frame is frayed burlap. The greeting is tied on with raffia. I thought the material is perfect for a rustic nature card.
This second card was done a little differently in that I sewed around the edges before gluing the fabric onto the cardstock.
Hmm, I guess these cards could be labeled "mixed media"? I like the textures. Top is fabric with a card stock backing, the bottom is an EK Success border punch with a peachy-pink background.
What do you think of these cards? I would really like your feedback, good AND bad!
Happy Friday, everybody!
