Birds on a limb

My girlfriend from church is a cook and baker and is so sweet, after we started the Daniel plan way of eating she has been trying different recipes and all natural foods for us to try, I would have to say her homemade applesauce was the best and she just gave us some apple butter that I can't wait to try at Thanksgiving.  This is the card I made for her.


I took the center heart from the bird house and put it onto the sign.  The leaves were cut out and applied to the top of the branch over the brown leaves background. The wings come out of the birds so I colored them with markers and glued them back onto the birds.

Poppystamps -- Stitched Landscapes die
Stamps of life -- Minis 4 circles sentiment stamp

Another week is over and it always makes me sad when Thanksgiving is over because that is when I feel Autumn is officially over.

Hope your enjoying a good week.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and your sweet comments, I really do appreciate hearing from you,

Connie

This card is simply precious, my friend. As a bird lover this card is right up my alley :)

I know what you mean about autumn feeling like it's over after Thanksgiving. Although here in the mountains it feels like we only get one month of autumn-like weather and then it's winter for 6 months :)

Have a wonderful weekend, my friend. Hugs!

Oh, I just love birds and know your friend is going to love this card! And how wonderful that you are both trying the Daniel Plan. I've heard good things about it. Yes, I know you will miss autumn and that it means winter is coming. Enjoy Thanksgiving, my friend, and just enjoy today! Hugs!

Oh, my gosh, that's so cute, Connie! I feel I'll miss autumn, too. We're racing into Christmas now, and it all goes by so fast. We have sunshine today and it would be nice to get out (wet, though), but Rich hurt his back and can't do much walking.
