ROTFL...I can picture what you went through, Anne as your description is perfect! Don't you find some days it is a total struggle to put what's in your head to paper? It's like there's some force at work, standing back laughing going...just you try...I'm going to put roadblocks up at every corner. Well, I do believe that all that work was worth it GF! The sponging, the texture, those adorable...perfect sized little birds...FABULOUS!

Oh that made me laugh. And I DO like it! Finding the right size needle was totally worth it.. I love the button and twine. The details are great on this card.
I will admit, it's difficult to type and laugh...snicker
Well it may have taken longer, which happens to me all the time, but your card was well worth your efforts. I use a special cusion for filling inthe negative spaces so the dies come out much better. Cherry Lynn Designs carries it.

I love it! Ann, I'm sorry you had so much trouble making this card....some days are like that aren't they? This is a gorgeous scene you created, even though this is not how you wanted it to go. Love the cattails and the background paper! The button and twine are perfect for this!
