Birds are singing!

Hello Friends!

Although we are still having a lot of rain,
we have had enough warm weather for the
birds to be out and the flowers blooming.
We have so many hummingbirds this year it's amazing!
I love watching them and listening
to their little squeaks too.

I know I told you all I would have Blog candy soon.
I did mean today, but my camera died after I just finished
photographing my card! I have it plugged in and will put
the candy up as soon as I can.

It is Inspiration Challenge today at  Magnolia-licious
Our wonderful DT Member Tracy is the 
host of our Challenge this month.

Here is her picture:

Lovely spring colours or cupcakes :o)


I couldn't believe I didn't have a stamp of Tilda 
with a cupcake :o(  I have her with almost any other food....
So I couldn't do cupcakes and chose to go with the colours instead.

Here  is the front of my card:

I have used Nitwit design paper.
Card stock is all from SU: Tempting Turquoise
Pixie Pink and Gable Green. I have also used
SU Ink in the exact same colours to put on each cut of paper,
but I mixed them all up for fun.

Tilda with Straw Hat is a very old one for me. She was one of the first
that I bought and I have no idea what Collection she came from.
Those first few years I didn't have a way to keep my stamps
in any sort of order :o(

Tilda's dress is Paper Pieced also with the
same NitWit papers.
I hardly used any Copics this time so I
haven't written them down. They are so much
the same as I always use....

Here are a few close ups for you:

Here is the inside:

and here is the sentiment:

The wonderful seam binding I used for the ribbon
and bow are from 
the pearls are from my stash.

Please take a trip to the
to see everyone's work :o)

See you very soon and 
thanks so much for dropping by
for a look at my card :o)
