St. Paddy's card and for the birds....




I made this card for a friend. I got the cute image from My Grafico. I wish I had colored the pot black. Oh well....too late and not enough time to remake. I may do another card to put in tomorrow's mail and hope that it gets there by Wed.!

While I was getting ready yesterday, my husband hollered up the stairs, "Michelle, you've got to see this, hurry!!" I grabbed my bathrobe and ran down stairs. I expected to see a huge moose or something. I looked out and saw two yards covered in black birds.





Then they went into this weird formation.



Then they all flew to the back yard and off. It was so strange! Please excuse the blurry raindrops on my window!

Cute card! And wow on the birds, I've seen a swarm of black birds once or twice around here, and it's a bit unnerving. I don't understand why there are so many, you'd think they'd have a hard time getting food or grass or whatever, being that many hundreds of them :)

Hope you have a fantastic day, and week!!!

Oh Michelle I love this St. Patrick's Day card. That image is really cute and I love the glittered shamrocks for some sparkle! You really did a great job on it!
Those birds would kind of creep me out. I am not a bird lover and that is a lot of big, black birds!
