What a great day we had yesterday! Riley was sufficiently exhausted after our boat trip. I enjoyed the beautiful spring trees and listening to the birds sing. We were in this one area where a bunch of red winged black birds were singing and I kept thinking I was hearing a cat. I mentioned that to Brock and he said "Maybe it's a cat bird". I have heard of cat birds, but I don't know that I've ever seen one or heard one. I kept looking for it and it turned out to be one of the red winged black birds making a cat sound! It was so strange! After I got home I looked up cat birds and found lots of videos on you tube that shows cat birds and other birds meowing like cats! This one of a mockingbird was my favorite
Yesterday LaVerne mentioned she couldn't find the image I used on Squigglefly's web site. Since I don't have an email address for you LaVerne, I'll give you the link here Just the newest images are on the front page of their web site. To see all of the images, click on "shop" at the top of the page.
Okay, on with today's cards (yes, I have TWO for you today)!
Remember I told you I borrowed Stampin Up's A good Egg set from my friend? Well, here are the cards I made with it.
The first one I stamped a flourish from Autumn Leaves all over the card front with a craft white ink. It's subtle, but I think it's so much better than a plain card base. I stamped the eggs and cut them out andmounted them over the panel of designer paper. I cut out the little chick and flocked him. When I cut him out I cut off his little hairs on top of his head, so I glued some yellow bits of fluff that I pulled off of some knobby yarn I had. I looked for some yellow feathers, but I didn't have any and the fluff from the yarn looks cute enough.
Here's the second card
I snapped a close up on this one so you could better see the flocking and the yellow fluff on his head.
This afternoon I get to go to a stamp camp, and I'm really looking forward to it! It's such fun to get together with other people who enjoy stamping and making cards as much as I do, and I always come home with so many ideas. I'll share what we make with you too! Have a great day!
