Ethan and I made a chocolate birds nest this week, and he was so stoked to make it, fill it with foil eggs and then eat it!

Embellish Magazine are having a challenge featuring a pink, brown and green colour scheme and incorporating birds.  So if there was ever a challenge that I had to participate in, this would be it.  And Moxie Fab World have a beautiful Shabby & Vintage challenge going at the same time.


The flower is 8 layers of scalloped circles, sprayed and scrunched ’til it resembles one of those old country garden roses that Nanna used to grow.  I can almost smell them now…

As much as I love pretty birdcages, I’d much rather see a bird fly away home to its nest…

And yes, that is a doily you can see peeping out of the top!  This card just seemed to be calling out for one. (o:

Enjoy your lovely Saturday afternoon.

Love Ruth
