It's my Mum's birthday this week (she won't read this, she's on holiday) and I made her this card of one of her favourite birds, the kingfisher. She's quite the birdwatcher. She get's so many birds come to her garden in Scotland. When we speak on the phone we'll exchange news of birds we've seen. There's a surprising amount of wildlife here in London.

I included this one of the back because the back always seems to look nicer and more artistic to me. I like the random stitches of the back.


  1. Oh, I thought that was an embroidery from the first image! So perfect. We saw a kingfisher in canada and my, do they have a presence.

  2. Wow that is really beautiful! Love the back too.. it looks fab :)
