You will laugh over the inspiration for today’s card!  We have several bird feeders on the edge of our backyard.  When I was refilling them yesterday I noticed some tiny corn and sunflowers trying to grow.  Who would have thought you could grow plants from birdseed.  Anyway…..that was the inspiration for today’s card.


Painted Harvest, 144783


Color Combination:



Of course I took creative license in making the sunflowers blue!  LOL!!  The area where our bird feeders are located back up to the neighbor’s privacy fence resulting the use of the Wood Textures DSP for the stamping surface.  You never know where inspiration will come from!


I don’t normally show other photos, but I have to share this one with you.  I live north of Atlanta and we get strange weather.  Well yesterday afternoon was the strangest yet, and a little scary.  We had the largest hail storm I have ever seen.  What do you think?

These are in my husband’s hands so they really are quite large, and oddly shaped.  It sounded like golfballs being hit against our garage door and gutters.  We had just been in the yard when it happened and ran into the garage.  So I am not sure how bad it was inside the house.  Yikes!  I hope not to repeat that again.


Okay!  Thank you for visiting today.  The supplies I used are at the bottom of the page.  And you will be surprised at how little supplies were used.  Although I do have to say that I am growing more and more in love with the Mango Melody color!!
