Pretty Birdie Cards

It's a wonderful thing to be able to add these little sweet touches to life.  This winter we've had lots of interaction with the birds in our yard. We get to watch them fluttering about the bird feeders and through the trees.  We've helped a couple birds to rest and heal from hitting our windows.  Unfortunately we've also had to bury some that didn't make it.  We've tried many things to keep them away from the windows, but I guess they just like what they see inside?  We were thinking perhaps one day when it's warm we should just open the doors and windows (without screens) and have an open house? :)

Well, this all got me to wanting to make some birdie cards.  I went through my stash and pulled out some images that were bird related, and then some papers that were given me with some birds on it and went to work.
Above I used an image from Showgirl's Creations that I love.  I added the heart stamp to the postage spot.  I had a bit of a pretty doily that I tucked under the corner and added some nice twine to compliment the little house in the picture. I added a touch of distressing to the paper edges to soften them.

For this next card I used some polka dot paper with some fun print paper.   A touch of lace and a tag that I found in my stash.  Not sure who it's from, if you know please let me know so I can give credit. I then added some baker's twine to the tag, some little crocheted flowers, and a pearl for their centres.

For the final card I used this lovely birdie paper I was given and it was so pretty I didn't want to cover it up.  SO, I just added a touch of lace with a brown satin bow.  A few crochet flowers, a couple with pearls and one with a metal brad for the centre.

It's so nice to be able to put together these simple cards that will be a gift from our home to someone special.

Thank you for dropping by! Praying you have a beautiful day!

These are so pretty. The birds are around here in droves and unfortunately my moms windows seem to be the cause of lots of collisions too. I think because they can see through to the living room windows they think they can go all the way through. Ouch! Have a blessed weekend!
