Simple Things


How I do enjoy the simple things...... This morning was up bright and early grabbed a cup of java and sat out on the deck listening to the morning sounds. Basically quiet with a few birds chirping in the background. After about 20 minutes I decided to put out some peanuts for the blue jays and squirrels with the hopes of seeing some entertainment. Well let me tell you those Blue Jays must have been waiting for me because within minutes they all came .... for a minute there thought I was in the movie "The Birds"or something like that.... poor squirrels didn't get a sniff. Looked over at the gazebo and seen about 4 Humming Birds coming in for their morning drink. How I love the "Simple Things" in life. I was sooooo content sitting there watching and drinking my morning coffee.
The stamps for this card are from Gina K Designs embossed with white embossing powder on aqua card stock and layered on shimmery white card stock cut from my nesties. The base of the card is from the same aqua paper and cuttlebug embossed, used Scor Pal for the lines added velum on the bottom which was edged with an EK punch then layered the sentiment cut from ribbon tag trio nestie finished with ribbon and a bow.

You have such an abundance of wild life around you to enjoy. That is fabulous. This card is equally as fabulous. Love the monochromatic look with that little punch of white. The shape of your layers is a nice touch and goes along well with your image.
