Happy Wednesday, peeps! We had a snow day yesterday, so I stayed inside and did lots of stamping! And it’s COLD today, too! Brrrr! Unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card, so I used the Mojo Monday sketch:
I used some new as well as retired items on my card; Newsprint DSP, Blushing Bride pleated ribbon, Established Elegance stamped in Smoky Slate on the background panel, and an assortment of butterflies, along with Petite Pairs:
There are all kinds of tutorials on the web these days about how to used waxed paper and a dryer sheet to get these Butterfly diecuts to pop out easily, and I kept the waxed paper diecut and placed it behind my Very Vanilla butterfly to give it a little bit of interest. I also added pearls to the In Color sequins:
Any questions, just shoot me an email!
I didn’t have Cassidy yesterday, but I was able to get some fun shots of an assortment of birds on my little suet feeder, all in the span of about 15 minutes. (This is photo heavy, so if you’re not a birder, skip it!)
I was only able to get a shot of this male downy woodpecker once, he was very shy!
A little Carolina wren:
A white-breasted nuthatch (he looks a bit angry, doesn’t he?):
A slate-colored junco:
A tufted titmouse:
And even a mockingbird!
I had to laugh at this junco and American goldfinch….they look like they are singing a duet! But not really….they’re actually yelling at each other!!!
