A Birdy Birthday!


Hello Friends,  My life is back to somewhat “normal” and I am sure happy about that! If I never see another storm like Irma…. it will be way too soon!  However, we surely dodged a major bullet this time around and for that I am forever grateful! My heart goes out to all that have been impacted by all the horrific storms, and fires over these past few months around the world.  It sure makes me appreciate the small inconvenience of no power and no AC over the last 9 days. Onto a happier subject!  Today over at Just Us Girls it’s Photo Week and as soon as I saw the pic Ina picked out, I knew what stamp set I was going to use.  It’s from Darcie’  Cutting out a half circle with a die was rather tricky. Here is the card that inspired me! The background was made with Oxide inks and the bird was colored with Colored Pencil.

Please come by Just Us Girls and check out what the team and our guest Linda has done!  Hope to see you in our gallery too! Hugs, Nanc’

  1. Cutting out the circle, may have been tricky, but so worth the time. You got a one layer card that is very special. Great placement of the branch with the flowers and that bird. Reminds me of a doodle my Mom used to do. When ever she was talking on the phone, she would doodle. This bird looks very much like hers. A warm spot for me today. Thanks.

  2. Glad things are getting back to normal, Nancy. That bird is darling perched among those beautiful flowers.

  3. Love your pretty card with that cute bird and pretty floral background. Great job cutting the half-circle, it turned out great. I like the way you did the background for the half circle.
