Feather or fur...you decide!!

Hello and welcome to Thursday. I am here to share my DT card for

As You Like It Challenge

and the theme is Favourite Feather or Fur?

I make no apologies for choosing fur, there's nothing softer than a rabbit or a cat and our old springer spaniel had the softest ears in the world!! Now don't get me wrong I love to have birds in my garden and I did actually adopt his budgie when our eldest Son moved into his house, but it's the flapping that scares the life out of me. It's my dear Grandma's fault, she used to let her budgie fly around her sitting room (it even had it's own perch attached to the mirror over the fire place!!) and it used to terrify me!! We actually had a dozen hens at one point that lived in our old calf barn. Although they had a perfectly nice coop they preferred to roost up high so I would open the door in the morning and wait until they had all come outside before going in to collect the eggs!! Anyway I am waffling today...here is my card.


The sweet image and sentiment is "Free Hugs" coloured with Pro/Flexmarkers. Papers are Curiosity Corner and the flower and pearls came from my stash.

I am taking my furry friends off to play here

Such a cute image and detail Sarah. Love the muted colour palette, lovely. Like to look at birds from a distance but had similar experience when young, so don't like the flapping.

Gorgeous card Sarah, yummy papers and cute image. Yep, hate the flapping thing indoors with birds, have had crows come down the chimney, stupid buggers! Put them out,well not me personally, I'm usually hiding in the kitchen lol, have been known to do the same thing again, grrrrrr! Finally hubby put wire over chimney. About time. Carolxx

Fur or feathers…hmmm…bit of a no brainer really! With 3 dogs (my Lab has the softest ears in the world I think you’ll find :P) it’s fur all the way…and all over the carpets…and all over the furniture….
Anyway love your gorgeous card, Sarah! Fab papers layered so beautifully to showcase that adorable image! Love that ‘never a truer word spoken’ sentiment too!
Have a great weekend! xx
