Audubon morning

Goodness, it has been nearly a week since my last post.  We've been busy running here and there ... living life.  Last Saturday I spent a glorious sunny morning with my son and members of the local Audubon Society.  It was an incredible experience.  With the guidance of knowledgeable birders, my son added over 20 new birds to his list...both Common and Hooded Merganser, Bufflehead, Redhead, Sharp-Shinned Hawk, and more.  It is amazing the beauty that surrounds us ... we just need to open our eyes to see it.

I just can't get enough of the sweet red felt hearts found at my local craft store.  This one is framed in antiqued chipboard and layered on burlap and linen.  An adorable heart embellished with a decorative pin and button.  The background prints are from my scrap drawer with the exception of the silhouette paper ... that is from our gorgeous Timeless Portraits collection.  I'm sure you recognize it from previous posts.  The greeting is detailed with pearls and says the sweetest things.

Now, about that bow ... I may have over done it but I just couldn't help myself.

Enjoy your day and thanks for visiting!

    this is G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S.
    love all the textures and layers...

    we have a feeder and suet outside my kitchen window.
    I love when the cardinals come...they never feed together...one is always sitting in the bush while the mate feeds...
    now and then we get a visit from a hawk...
    i love his majestic beauty but he's not there for seeds :(
