Happy Birthday Mom

Hello.  I wanted to share a birthday card that I made for my mom's birthday on Thursday.  She told me she wanted nature and natural, kraft paper, twine, maybe with a bird, and  no froo froo stuff.  I hope this does the trick.  I didn't even stitch on the card.  I am happy with how it turned out though.  I think the stitching would have been too much. 


I found this bird image HERE along with a lot of other beauties.  I printed him off and colored it with my Copics to brighten up the washed out color.  Here in Alabama these darn Mocking Birds are everywhere and they are sooo mean.  They are running off my sweet Eastern Bluebirds and fighting with the Robins, but my mom likes them so I guess I can put my prejudices aside to make her a card.  hehe


I used the fab sketch over at Card Patterns


My hubby and son are telling me they are hungry and want me to start dinner.  So off I go.  See you soon.

Thanks for stopping by,
Heather

Beautiful Heather! I love birds, especially their song. We have lots of birds in our yard because we tempt them with food, but not nearly as colorful and varied as where you live. I know your mom is going to love her sweet card. Give her a Happy Birthday hug from me!
