Snowy Spring in Colorado April 17, 2009

So, we are having a blizzard today, April 17, Springtime in the rockies :) The snow started yesterday and is still coming down. It's about 3 - 4 feet high so far w/ no end in sight. I took these pictures of the birds in the trees on the North side of our home. My DH loves the birds and we have many bird feeders in our trees and it's CHOW time. Don't these pictures remind you of some stamps you've seen :)

I made this card for 2 challenges this week, Card Positioning Systems 110 and The Pink Elephan #9. The little birds are among my favorite Hero Arts stamps. My friend Nancy sold me her Cuttlebug for $20 and loaned me 3 embossing folders to play with, so of course, my loving birds and all, I used the Cuttlebug birds and swirls embossing folder first. Hope you like this card, I'm very happy with it. Items used: HA holiday doves and all occasion stamps, Cuttlebug birds& swirls, lacepunch, buttons, thread.
