Today is the day that the Lord has made rejoice in it!

Spring is in the air and as I sat on the patio this morning and thanked the Lord for our beautiful world,
I saw several little birds! There has been so much rain that our pond is over flowed and the turtles are everywhere! When coloring birds, don't be afraid for them to look whimsical and fun. Everything doesn't have to be true to life. I like to use at least three colors and often accent with a white gel pen. I also like to use a black gel pen to add in feathers and definition.  When I see the birds, it brings me such good memories of my family that has gone to be with the Lord. Both sets of our parents loved nature, and really appreciated the beauty and gifts of it, especially birds. When my husband's mother was very ill she told me she was ready to go sing and fly with the birds! It has given me a gift of love and memories that I so treasure! When I hear or see a bird I think of all of them, and say hello back, so the birds can carry them the message in Heaven! The flowers card is punched into four squares and then mounted on an accent color, that forms a frame around each piece.  The leaves are stamped on the white card base and the flowers are on pop dots, to give the card a dimensional look. The pink at the bottom is wash tape and the sentiment was added over the top.   I hope todays cards inspire your creative side!  Contact me for stamps and all needed project products 979-255-0377 or debsegler@gmail.com
