The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge site wants flowers and I love flowers so I knew this challenge was for me. I did this card in under an hour that is a record for me! I used the Cricut Wild Card cartridge for the flowers cuts, (I really like this cartridge for all the impressive cuts but since I only have the baby bug I don't make the cards themselves as the dimensions are relatively smaller than standard sized cards) I used the Cuttlebug for some embossing, layered the flower up a bit and added some dew drops. Easy Peasy!

Finally as promised a picture of the Robins, I cannot believe how big they have gotten! I noticed their skin really darkened plus feather shafts are protruding through on their extremities, changes happen fast when your a bird. Mom and dad bird are working 24/7 to keep these three fed what a job!

How are the bees doing? I really miss them! Nice card. Hmmph, birds.

What a super-stay-at-home-mom! I can't believe you can find the time to do all of this card-making and bird bothering and blogging and still have barbequed ribs and homemade cornbread on the table for supper! And have the dog groomed!

Beth:) THANKS for your SO SWEET comments on my card! I was SO glad to finally get to participate! Looking forward to being a 'regular', hope that's ok!
LOVE this flower (well, the whole card of course!) Very artistic {which sounds a strange word to say here, to me. Because of course it's ART, 'duh Robin'...but you know what I mean? Not cutesy, or anything like that. Quite beautiful...meaningful...that's's a 'meaningful' flower, if that makes sense?!?! (It's meant to be a compliment!)
LOVE the bird updates too! It's amazing to watch them grow!!

I love this card, it's crazy beautiful! Thanks for sharing the birdie pics's amazing to see them develop. In my classroom we have five tadpoles and I can't wait to see them grow legs and become frogs. I just don't want to clean the tank :-(
