Sunny places...

It is just beautiful out this morning the sun is shining the birds are singing and laying eggs already! I can still hear mother robin out there scolding me for sticking my camera too close for comfort. She has three beautiful blue eggs in her nest, I am excited for the big day! I shared this with my children and implored them not to touch the eggs or they will break. My father showed me a nest as a child but I just had to touch the eggs and broke them all, my father was very upset with me for some time, I still feel bad about it....

Ok these are my favorite bulb flowers they are called Fritillaria or Snake Head, they are checkered how cool are these!


So due to my lack of time at the craft table lately I created a combo card: The sketch is from Mojo Monday # 83 I know it's not exactly the sketch, I have a hard time not deviating from the plan!
Cute Daisy May wants the use of glitter I put prisma glitter on the windows in attempt to create the illusion of reflection, sure let's go with that! I also used the Cuttlebug Challenge site for this card using home sweet home as the theme of the card. Well, I'm off to enjoy this amazing day with my youngest son Oscar. Have a terrific Friday and don't forget to create and stop on over to Unscripted Sketches tomorrow for a terrific new sketch!BR-T

Sorry but my comment is not really about your card (although that is very good) it is about the fantastic photo of the bird in it's nest. How brilliant is that!
