Cherish the Simple Pleasures



Last night I was sitting out on the deck watching the birds play around the bird bath  so that is what influenced my card today.  The stamp set used is "Spring has Spring" from Gina K Designs.  I also used Kitty Caracciolo's "Cause A Scene" set for the background. 

The bird bath from GKD was stamped first then I started creating the background.  I started with the tree using stamps from Kittie's kit.  Grass was stamped  then I sponged on the sky and filled in the grass background.  Small flowers and butterflies were punched out and added to complete the card.

I love to go out and watch all the birds.  Each year we have quail that have a nest on the ground on the other side of our wood fence.  The papa always sits on the fence and chatters to the mom and babies.  As soon as the babies get big enough, they learn how to fly from our fence.  How cute they are.   We have lots of other birds too and they are all fun to watch.

I love your card, we sit and watch the birds too! I have a yellow bird house that stays full, we get to see the babies fly off and even return, it's just so relaxing!

Selma,
I love your beautiful summer scene!
The birds are really fun to watch, we have fountains they love to shower in and then come eat off the 5 birders we have.

Beautiful card Selma! I've noticed a few card makers are starting to put scenes together again on their cards, it's good to see.

Beautiful card Selma, reminds me of our place too. We have lots of birds here and every year we see the same birds coming back to nest. I love watching the baby Willy Wagtails learning to fly.

You created a great scene! I have bird feeders and a bird bath right outside my living room window so I can watch them. Your card is so cute.
