A little birdie told me!

 It is supposed to be spring here in Manitoba but it is still freezing cold & the poor birds are starting to come back looking for food....my feeders have been very busy. We still have snow on the ground in our yard & the river in front of the house is still partially frozen. My tulips & daffodils are peeking through though so spring can't be too far off! (can it?)  I have been making some cards with no coloring on them lately. As much as I enjoy coloring I am loving the look of this card! The gorgeous DP is the songbird collection by Prima (Lineage & Zephyr) The dies are all Memory Box....grove branch, meadow bird, macarena corner & petal party. I used a tiny black pearl for the eye & some bronze brads for the centers of the flowers. That's it....hope you like it as much as I do!

  1. Love it Renee! Such a great use of the dies. If your summer is like ours was (does that make sense?) it will be a bit chilly! Hope spring spings soon for you all. Thanks for sharing with us at Unstampabelles for our current challenge!

  2. This is beautiful! I love the combination of papers you used, they look so pretty together! Your bird looks lovely on your die cut branch and the flourish in the corner really sets it all off! A perfect card for our Spring challenge at CC&CC/ Thanx so much for joining us! Hugs, Joanne ~ And I hope Spring is there for good soon!
