artygirlz 75 AND aspoonfullofsugar 41





rain rain.... we need it here and i really dont mind it ( as long as i dont have to go out in it ;) but oooh boy i get cold from it and then cant warm up . i really like watching all the little chickadees (dont know if what they really are, theyre little brown and black birdies) they hang out in the birch tree right outside my craft room window , about 20 or so of them at a time and frolic around in the water puddles and my bird baths.. just so precious and happy. my cats would like to be out there playing with them too lol.
anyways....on to the card :) in keeping with the whole bird theme here.. i killed 2 (so to speak) with 1 stone...this weeks theme over at artygirlz is blue and yellow and aspoonfull the theme is torn edges so i incorporated both onto the one card. for it i used my handy dandy cricut and wild card (birds cut at 1 and 1~1/2 inches, i added cloud9 raindot hearts for thier wings.) jasmine (corners cut at 4~1/2 inches) and Beyond birthdays (hello friend cut at 2 inches) cartridges. the birds the saying and the corners were cut from ivory cardstock i inked the birds and corners with colorbox chalk/ink and the sentiment with stampin up ink.
the paper is memorybox. thank you so much for visiting my blog and a lil hug for leaving a comment which i very much appreciate :) oh.. and you can get to arty girlz by clicking HERE and aspoonfull by clicking HERE

I love watching the birds in the bird bath! By July we have lots of juvenile starlings bathing- they actually queue up!!! And go in and out 4 or 5 at a time. It always lifts me to see them.

At the moment though I am having to break th eice off the top of the water each morning for them. Sometimes I pour a kettle of hot water into it- it makes it just tepid, but leaves steam all around it. In th eminute it takes to get back indoors and at my window, a blackbird will be in there, having his steam bath :)

Anyway, to the card! I really love it!!! I always like the look of paper tearing and sublte distressing. I love your colours and have a soft spot for cards with birds on!
