Spring Birdhouses

Good morning.  I hope that you had the same wonderful weather yesterday that we did in Oxfordshire.  Spring is definitely on the way.  So different from Wednesday when we had over night torrential rain Tuesday night; so much so that the roads were very badly flooded and I wasn't able to drive into town.  I got through some of the flooded areas but eventually I had to give up and go back. At one point there were two fire engines trying to pump the water away.  And then yesterday it was beautiful.  Crazy British weather!!!!

My Card

5x7" base card
yellow card - from stash
white card - Rymans
embossing folder - Couture Creations "Petal Pleasures
 Noble Rectangles  die- Sue Wilson
Fancy Tags die - Spellbinders
Birdhouse Topper - Lili of the Valley Art Pad
pearls from stash

I found this LOTV art pad in the drawer (not that it was lost!) and since it was so spring-like yesterday I decided to use this image. The daffodils are out and the birds have been very busy so it seemed very appropriate.

Hope this finds you all well. Take care!

Hi Christine
Exceedingly lovely and Spring like. The image is so pretty.
Managed to get a line of washing completely dry yesterday in glorious sunshine and today, have seen folk trotting about in T Shirts.
See you Thursday hopefully.

Hi Christine,
yes this card is very spring like, and that image just oozes spring.
Super designing also, and very lovely embossing used too.
You are not wrong about the British weather, and how changeable it can be.
So glad you managed to make your journey safely.
Love and biggest hugs from my house to yours.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Wish I had been smart and sent away for a ton of these art pads b4 they were discontinued. They are always such lovely images and yours today is no exception.
Very pretty card!
