Yellow Birthday Birds:

Is it the weekend yet, is it pretty please?!  It's been an overload of crafting this week, throw in work and I don't have much time to do anything else. 


It is also the first day of Spring, though you would have NO IDEA by looking out the window here.

We have had excessive amounts of snow this year and we are running out of room.  There is just no where to put it anymore!


No lie, I took this photo of our house yesterday morning.  Yesterday!!! 

No, we don't have a tiny house, the snow really is 6 feet in spots.  The forecast is calling for another 20 cm (8 inches) by the end of the week.

I am not complaining, I love our winters, but sometimes it would be nice to see some flowers blooming :)

This week's challenge at Papercraft Star is "birds"

Since Spring is more than a wish away, I created Spring on my card:
Card Ingredients:  The Graphics Fairy digi, MME and K&Co papers, Recollections cardstock, Wild Orchid flowers, AmyR sentiment, Craftsmart Gold and Chocolate inks, Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap ink, Recollections gems .  Tools:  sewing machine, Oval and Scalloped Oval Nesties, Simon Says banner die.


I made this card for the following challenges:  'ABC' Challenges - flowers, Sparkles - birds.

Fabulous card, love how you framed the birds. After seeing your snow pics, I am never complaining about snow here again! I don't think I could leave my house if it snowed 6 ft!

Wow - what a beautiful spring card! I absolutely love the yellow and green and the way you framed your main image. Thanks so much for joining our challenge this week at ABC Challenges - Flowers.

I am amazed at your snow. It has been cold where I'm at and is snowing tonight yet again - but I'm quite certain it isn't going to amount to what you have - eek-!
