Lovebirds

Case Study's 100th challenge is to take inspiration from this card by Kristii Lockhart.  



I liked the idea of a couple of birdies and the red gingham ribbon.  Aw, tweet.  The birds and birdcage stamps are from Kanban, and the love stamp is from Paper Smooches.  The background paper is from the opticians.  Oh no, it was Papermania from their Happy Days range.  The ribbon bow, expertly tied (but not by me!), is also by Papermania from their Portobello Road range. 



I am becoming a regular visitor to my opticians.  I've been trying out occupational lenses (trendy word for bifocals, I think).  But I've got so fed up with wobbling my head around to get the tiniest area into focus, only to wobble again half a second later when I want to look half an inch to left, right, up or down that I've given up and I am returning to the good old fashioned, tried and tested method of one pair on the nose and the other parked on the head, waiting to be swapped over.  And sometimes both pairs on the nose...

  5. Love this graphic take on Kristii's card! I've just got varifocals which must be the same as your occupational lenses and your account rings so true to me! I only use my varifocals for driving which allows me to see the distant road and close up dials but I don't need to move my head much! For crafting/computing I have a good old fashioned pair of reading glasses :) Thanks for joining us at CASE study this week :)
