Happy Easter to you all! It's a beautiful, sunny day.......til you step outside and then it's CHILLY!! But we aren't getting snow so that is a good thing. We'll be heading to my parents shortly for a small Easter dinner. Thank you so much to all of you that visit my blog and for the wonderful comments you leave. I read each and every comment. Don't forget that I'll be doing lots of give aways starting next week. And I'll be picking the winners from comments left on my posts, tomorrow I'll have a guessing game for you so stay tuned.
This pretty cards reminds me of Spring. The robins are flitting around in the back yard and I always know that Spring is not too far away when I see them. And I just love to find bird's nests, don't you? Imagine this mama's surprise to find this egg in her nest!!! The fun stamps are from a new Crafty Secrets clear set called Bird Lovers(take some time to check out all of the new sets, these new ones are among many of my new favorites). If you are a bird lover, you will want to add this set to your collection. There are many, many ways to pair up the images and Cindy and Sandy from Crafty Secrets did a wonderful job of collecting images for this set. The background paper looks like old, white washed wood and is from the Pastel 6 x 12 vintage patterned paper pad. Solid cardstock and ribbon is from Papertrey Ink.
The images were colored with Copic Sketch markers available at Ellen's online store. In this photo below, you can see that I used Ranger Glossy Accents and a sprinkling of glitter while the Glossy Accents was still wet. The egg is cut out and slipped into the nest for some dimension. A pop dot is behind the top of the egg so it stands out even more. I LOVE this set!!Sooooo, are you a bird lover? I love to feed my birds and listen to them sing outside my windows. One of my favorite bird memories is a video of Jordan when she was about three. She was at the park with Grandma Woody and she came running up with something clutched ever so gently in her hand. She said *Look, it's an egg!!!* Little did she know that she was picking up cracked open peanut shells!! LOL
