A couple of week ago Rob and I went to Vermont to see my sister. The first morning I woke up I looked out the window and there were a ton of Cardinals in her tree. I have never seen so many Cardinals in one place before and I counted at least 19 of them. It was the most amazing thing and so beautiful. Then I went downstairs and she had Blue Birds! Rob and I have a couple of bird feeders out but all we get are little birds, Mourning Doves, big, giant, ugly Blue Jays and a lot of squirrels that we do our best to keep out of the feeders!
So, I asked my sister how she does it and she took me bird feeder and bird food shopping. Blue Birds eat dried mealworms. I do have to say they are disgusting to look at but I try not to think about that. Cardinals like Black Oil Sunflower seeds. Who knew different birds liked different food! I came home armed to the teeth with all my new contraptions and bird food. Two weeks have gone by. Not a single Cardinal or Blue Bird to be seen! Sigh.
I made this card using a new stamp set from the 2018 Occasions Catalog called Bird Banter. I am not usually big on cute sets but I love this one. It has a bunch of cute birds along with cute accessories to outfit the birds. Even the saying are cute. They are perfect to color using your Stampin’ Blends or Stampin’ Markers. I know it is hard to see but I embossed the bottom of the card using the Celebration Duo. Here is a close up of it:
Lastly, I added some of the Tutti-Fruitti Adhesive Backed Sequins.
