Here's my card using one of Tammy's digis, Home Sweet Home. With spring trying to show up, I've been seeing more and more of the migrating birds come back for their visit. We were blessed to see an oriole all handsome in his bright orange and black coat. And the hummingbirds have made an appearance, letting me know I don't have their feeder out yet! Once again, I used scraps of paper on my card and let that determine what my color palette will be.

Your card is just adorable! Oh I have been enjoying all the birds also! Although it is a battle to keep the feeders full! I haven't seen any hummingbirds yet, but it has still been pretty cool here. I think I will get their feeders out next week and maybe I will see a few.
Hugs and have a wonderful day!

Marilou said...

Yippppeeee, a party! Thank you for your contribution to the festivities!! I enjoyed looking around your blog and have become a follower. Woo Hoo!!

Sharon Basel said...

Hi Linda!
You've created the sweetest card! I love your colors and papers. You always select the most wonderful paper combinations. I've tried to emulate you on this but failing miserably!!! What I love is how you select different colors/patterns that don't necessarily have any relation to each other and give such stunning results together. It's part of that "Stamper's Touch" of yours (a bit of magic and super creativity too!) Enjoy the fun celebration this week!
Sharon :)

Linda, I love this little bird house card! I am a lover of birds too! Our hummingbirds stay all winter along with the finches and chickadees. Love your bright cheery birdhouse and the little bluebirds and blue flowers. I always love blue flowers in the garden! I do hope you are keeping your feet up! But it looks like it is hard to keep you down. Your Fresh Brewed card is adorable too! Happy 100th Celebration! Judi

Kathie said...

Hi Linda, I do love this image, it's the wonderful bright colours and such a spring and summer feeling. What a great card for just so many purposes oh how did I miss this image I don't know!!! have to wear my glass next time. I do wish we were going back into summer I hate winter. Still warm here but we have rain today and the weekend great.
Take care, hope your knee is on the mend look after yourself and take things easy that means more crafting.
