Hello there, peeps! Squeaking in another post today---I am combining a couple of challenges today for a birthday card I needed! I used the Pals Paper Arts sketch 159”
along with the beautiful colors from the Play Date Café, for which the deadline is fast approaching:
I had a wee bit of trouble with the maroon color, but I squeezed it in on my flowers!:
I didn’t really like Poppy Parade when it first came out; now I wish it would come back! What a great shade of red! I used some papers from last year’s Domestic Goddess pack, as the prints and colors were perfect for the challenge!
I don’t have any new photos of Cassidy to share, but I was able (amazingly!!!) to snap a couple pictures of my elusive oriole. I knew where he was in the tree, so I just aimed my camera and took a couple of shots. This tree was probably 50’ away from me! These are cropped and enlarged, so they’re not real clear, but good enough to get a view:
On another bird note, as I was parking my car in my driveway yesterday, a huge pileated woodpecker flew right across my field of vision! I was dumbfounded! I had seen one in the woods once, so to have him fly so close to me and close to the ground….my head was in the clouds! Enjoy your day!
