Listen and you can hear the flutter of wings!

This humming bird reminds me of my sweet mother in law that has gone to be with the Lord, Mary Lake or Mama Lake as we called her!  She gave me many gifts of love over the years and one of them was the love of birds! She lived in Rockport Texas and humming birds migrated there and she would have at least a dozen feeders in her yard. She would often wake me early in the morning while the house was still quiet, with a cup of fresh coffee in her hand! We would sit on the patio looking over the bay and watch the humming birds find the bright red feeders. She taught me to sit quietly and listen in a very noise filled, and fast paced world! You could really hear their little wings fluttering around the feeders!  It has now become my morning ritual to sit outside and enjoy the birds and nature, say my morning prayers, and remember the love and great times she shared with me and my family! Always remember to make time for silence, clear your head and count your blessings!
This card was colored with copic markers.  I free hand cut the bird and flowers out and glued them on my card.  I used a border punch on the edge of the designer paper on the inside of the card. (hard to see) I glued a small strip of paper that was left from my punch, cause I just could not throw it away! Your challenge today if you should take it is to make a card based on a happy memory! Send me a picture!
