A big thank you to all my followers

When  I first saw Carols beautiful colourful card  the patterns on the feathers caught my eye .I only have a small feather die and when I first tried putting on a pattern and colour to them it wasn't right somehow.Then by happy accident as I was practising on another scrap of card I turned it over and  realised I had used a piece that had a little scene on it ...and the rest was history.... : )

(The scene was one that I had been trying out for a long time friends retirement card ,he has been a fish house manager here in Aberdeen for nigh on 45 years! So I wanted something that reflected the sea and the lighthouse that he sees every day on his way to work and thought this stamp would fit the bill) Don't have a small  retirement stamp as yet:) so settled for just best wishes and will add... "on your retirement "inside.

I know that my card looks nothing like Carols card but the Muse challenge is about getting inspiration from the Muse card....she says desperately!! So here's where I got my inspiration from :-

The feathers (Can you spot them?) which are stamped and coloured with SU markers 
with some of Carols colours then popped up.

The orientation of the card.

The white panel mounted on a coloured one
Sentiment under the image.

I would also like to enter this into Pixies Snippets Playground as apart from the card base the rest were made out scraps and snippets, you must head over and have a look-a lovely bunch of ladies led by Di (must say thanks Di for being one of your weekly picks )  - and not only great inspiration from the other ' snippeties' but you have a chance of winning some fab prizes!While there I noticed that there was another challenge I could enter  - The Cuttlebug Mania , as I had used my cuttlebug to cut out the panels with spellbinders nestibilities, and for my feathers used a Memory box feather die
Wow first time ever I have managed to combine 3 challenges I think :)

Thanks for taking the time to look


  1. Oh Jenni - this is just fabulous!! It's perfection - love the little scene and how you popped it up on the die cut feathers.

    How lovely that you like the Playground, they really are such a darling and talented bunch of girls - also kind and sharing. Never had any pinching or hair pulling - although they think I don't know about the illicit 'still' they have hidden behind the bike shed!!The Cuttlebug teamies are super as well - I do count myself as being very blessed.

    Come back soon!

  2. OOOOOO! Wow, this is incredibly beautiful and so original. I love it!

  3. Forgot to say that my mother was born and raised in Dunoon. Even though I was raised in Maine, USA, I love Scotland. My aunts and all of my mother's extended family are still there. :)

  4. This is such a clever design, making a nautical scene and cut it out with the feathers. Love it!

  5. Your card is inspired, gorgeous, creative, and just plain genius, Jenni!!! I've not a feather in the house - and why is it again that we aren't next-door neighbors? No matter the distance, I'm seeing plainly that you are right at home in the Muse gallery this week - any week!
