True Blue Friends Forever

Today I have this lovely attempt at something vintage for you. I actually made it last week and posted earlier this week on SCS but have not had the time to post it here. I loved this bird image when I saw it in a little shop in St. Charles, Missouri.....a place that I have wanted to check out for about a year. Finally got up there a couple of weeks ago when my brother from California was in town for my Dad's funeral. My siblings and Mom took a much needed day away from the stress and shopped.
Anyway, I played around with the coloring for quite sometime until I came up with the blues..similar to baby bluebirds. I kept the template for the shaped kraft paper from a project I did last year. Just added the piercing because it looked too plain without something. The crocheted flower is mine and made with DMC floss (I am thinking I might like to make these and sell them, what do you think?).
Well, want to get outside and enjoy this lovely weather....especially while the humidity is low and there is a breeze. Hope your weekend is a pleasant one.

  1. Nice job with the coloring of the birds...

  2. Thank You, Cindy, for visiting my blog, and the nice comment. You do beautiful work, and you're encouraging me to get back to "stamping" cards again. It's been about two months this I posted a card at SCS.

  3. With me adding a Third comment I feel like a pest now...LOL, but thank you again for ANOTHER lovely comment on my blog. I am JD from Pausa at SCS, I have very little in my gallery...still trying to learn rubber stamping.
    The Garden photo that you commented about...was taken at Longwood Gardens, it's located about an hour from my home...beautiful place to visit.

  4. Oh Cindy! Just a darling card and your flower is PERFECT... I love the paper piercing and lace is DIVINE! TFS... Michelle :)

  5. These little bluebirds are so cute. The colorning is wonderful. I enjoyed reading your blog and got a kick out of "What Kind of Flower am I." Grabbed that for my blog! tfs

  6. And it is a lovely card too! I love the blues and just touches of the other colors.
