Watermelon & Crab Digital Stamps for this fun summer card! Both of these stamps are in the $1 Doodle Bowl too!! I colored this card with my Copic markers. This time I did the layout in Photoshop along with the sentiment. Hope you like it! Click the 'Cards' tag to see lots of cards I've made over this past year!

Today as I was feeding the chickens I noticed this little guy hopping around by my garden shed. His little baby wing was slightly injured so I picked him up (before my rooster saw him) and was thinking about what to do. I looked out into the field and saw a bluebird dancing around my cat, Ally's, head. I ran out there and got Ally away from the other bluebird baby as it flew away! So I realized that today was "flying lessons" for these 2 babies! I watched them for a little while and throughout the day - out in the field and the nearby wooded area. They were so cute!

Someone found this baby owl in the road and brought it to me thinking I would know what to do! The only thing I knew to do was to take it to the Animal Rescue Shelter. He was so cute and I really wanted to keep him (like I do all critters), but I figured he needed some special care!

I took a video clip of my brand new biddies (april 2011) and was checking it out on my computer and Francie insisted on having a front row seat!!

I did a monogram on these napkins. This was my first try at the satin stitch and I need LOTS of practice on this one! But it was still fun!

These pics were from early May before it got too hot for the girls to be out. They LOVE going on boat rides! For this trip they had on their new pink sundresses! You can't see, but they had sequined anchors on the backs! So Cute!
I hand stitched this pillow by the instructions in a booklet. This was my first try at making a pillow. Some of my stem stitches could have been better. I think I should have been closer to the edges. Anyway, I have enough fabric to try this one again.

I haven't seen a painted bunting since I lived in south Florida! I was so delighted to see this little guy hanging around all morning with his girl too (not pictured). The photo quality is not that great but you can still see him pretty good! I didn't see him again after this day. I love painted buntings, they have every color in the rainbow!
