Good Thursday Morning Ladies,
What a wash out of a day yesterday was, rain, rain and more rain! On the up side we didn't have to water the garden.
Paul received a Bird Feeder for Father's Day and we finally got it put up last weekend, I got a Squirrel-Proof (I know) Feeder and filled it with Mixed seeds and grains for Garden Birds, we had a few but not that many, then I added another feeder with Mealworms, they really liked those, while we were out at the weekend I picked up this Suet/fat cake with berries, we have a little cage thing hanging from the feeder that this cake would fit in perfectly, so on Monday I popped it in, well you have never seen anything like it, there was a feeding frenzy, they were squawking and fighting for access to the cake, the mealworms were popular too, I went out to check it later in the evening to find that the suet cake had been totally consumed! So we know what they like I guess, it's lovely to see all of the different birds, we have always had lots of different birds in the garden but the feeder has attracted even more. I thought that the pigeons would swoop in and dominate the feeder but not so far.
I love the card that I am sharing today, it has to be one of my favourite cards from that time, I think that quite a few of us had these Ann Marie Designs papers back then, I had so many favourite colours from this collection, this almost Mushroom colour was one of my top 3, I just paired and pattern and plain in the same shade and added a pretty lace border with a matching colour ribbon through it.
To embellish the card I used my favourite Cheery Lynn Flourish die and the flowers are made using Spellbinder Blossom dies cut out of Felt , the leaves were also Spellbinder Foliage dies, I popped a tiny coloured pearl in the centres of the flowers to finish them off and added a SW die with the Happy Birthday sentiment. (we just didn't stamp in those days)!!
I hope you like this 'Throwback' card, I could start doing a feature where we 'Throwback' to some of your older cards too if you like?
I have to prepare for an Ultrasound Scan tomorrow, it's at noon and I am not allowed to eat any food, or dairy 6 hours prior to my scan, so I will be having a very late breakfast/brunch, you are allowed water though. I am grateful that the GP managed to get me one so soon as she had prepared me to wait at least 6 weeks. Paul is going to go in a little late so that he can take me, as it's in an unfamiliar town and those of you that know will understand that I will be a bit of a nervous wreck!
I hope that you all have a lovely day my lovelies,
Love and hugs to all of you,
