At the beginning of a long weekend here (National holiday tomorrow) I am posting five cards which I made with birds. I can't help it, I love creating with this little bird at the moment and that is what creating is all about, enjoying the moment and going with the flow. I would give myself a headache if I had to come up with something that isn't natural to my heart.
I used a scrap of patterned paper for the smaller panel and found this
red paper that I don't use very often, so it found a place here. I
stamped and cut out a leaf from Clearly Besotted stamps for the nest.
The little bird is from Stampin' Up and the Spring definition is Hero
Arts (thanks Lin!). I will always be grateful to Linn (from Sending
Hugs) for sending me this stamp. Before we know it, it will be Summer
here, so always grateful when I can use a Spring definition!
My granddaughter, Serena will be one year old in June and will be with us at that time. So, I was thinking of giving her this card.
I had a scrap of paper that I had used distress inks sprayed with water on and hadn't used yet. I stamped over the top with a leaf stamp from Clearly Besotted and then stamped a few orange flowers. This little bird was already cut out and fit just perfectly on the branch.
Happy birthday sentiment is Stampin' Up.
This card was made by stamping a piece of paper out of a very cheaply found Nature Book.
I stamped directly onto patterned paper with several different stamps on this one. The ruler was not straight, so I had to hide it with two flowers.
I used a mix of Hero Arts and Stampin' Up for this card.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Just to leave you with a little thought. A book of Derek Prince helped me to realize that God is not looking for success. Sometimes on the Mission Field, or wherever you strive to be a witness through your daily lives, the fact that there is a lack of fruit is not a sign of disapproval! God is looking for the 'faithful' servant! That blessed me so much. I can't always have success but I can be faithful!
