Welcome

Welcome to my blog! I never really thought I would create a blog untill hubby set up a family one. I started posting to it and was told off for "hijacking" it with my "craft rubbish!" And so the Nerdbird Blog was born! Not sure how much I'll post but I understand that this blogging lark can be addictive!

Bad Girls Challenges

There's loads going on at Bad girls at the moment, and I'm hoping all the challenges will get me going again! Anyway a While ago Juile Ann made a fab tutorial on making flowers out of coffee filters. Well I didn't have any of those so I gave it a go with tissue paper: Here is the finished result, I use white and then sparyed with glimmer mist. I will be makeing more of these!
Close up:Julie Ann also set a challenge to reuse old security envelopes (you know the ones bill's usually come in). 2 more challenges were to stamp using household items and scrap using a song, so I decided to roll all 3 challenges together!
Envelopes in stripes behind the photos
Stamped using bubble wrap and a lego brick (don't tell Will)
Title is lyrics from "you are my Sunshine" - I have song this song to both boys, but changing it to "You are my "William/Ollie" etc.
I only stuck the envelope stripes down with DSS tape and when I sprayed with glimmer mist it all curled up but I actually like how this turned out
