Another peak at the new Springtime Cardinal Collection

Hiya folks!

Well, here in the moderate climate of the Pacific Northwest I have to advise that we had SNOW today!  We only get snow here a handful of times a year and we kind of expect it between December and February, not in the middle of April!  Anyway, I guess it's wishful thinking, but here is a spring themed birthday card.

The image is meant to be a cardinal, but I am very partial to Jays - we get them around here, mainly Stellars Jays, and they come in my yard and I feed them all through the spring and summer.  They are very social and love to collect food from us and then go and hide it somewhere.

It's almost the weekend, and I'd planned to work in my garden and plant some herbs and flowers, but now I'm thinking that may have to wait till next weekend--guess that means more play time in my craft room!  I hope you all have fun plans to look forward to for the weekend.
