Hi Everyone... Its such a beautiful day here...we just got a much needed inch of rain the last 2 days.....and everything is so fresh and new...
I'm on the farm here and we have a beautiful picnic area behind the house, so I took my coffee and book and sat out there for awhile and listened to the birds singing...."what a joy"
"Thank You Lord for your beautiful creation!!
I have a card here I did for our twisted Sister Challenge, and that is to make a card that lifts you up....
I was playing around with this image from "Close to my Heart" Company...and I coloured the bird...then had to find some colours to go with it...and I;m not much of a orange person...But I was really LIFTED UP..when I got done this card...and loved how it turned out.;
So come and play with us....just put TSC0621 in the keywords, and just make something that lifts you up!

Sistah Jan, I smiled to see these dreamy browns, and also remember our post-move plan for that picnic area of yours! Love-love-love your textures, layers and sweet image. Lymi, hugs.....

Jan, this is really special. I love the colors and that beautiful bird. Very uplifting. I am not sure I knew you lived on a farm too - another thing we have in common! Ours is very small but it still qualifies. I love the country and it is a great place to see wonderful birds such as this - but even better to spend some time appreciating God's gifts. Hugz!
