Dogwood and Bluebirds

 A few weeks ago, I looked out my front window and saw just this scene!  The dogwoods had just opened and there sat a male bluebird looking straight back at me!  I wasn't fast enough to get a real picture, but I've got it in my mind, and this will commemorate that moment.  

I get so excited about bluebirds now because it's taken them 50 years to appear in our backyard here in NE Ohio, and there is nothing else like them!  Every year now for the past 2 or 3 years, they build a nest in one of our birdhouses, and have at least 2 broods.  It's fun to see them flitting back and forth across the backyard - a dazzling streak of beautiful blue!

I needed a thank you card for Mother's Day, and here it is.

supplies: white, Surf Blue, chocolate, pale and bright green, pale orange, medium and dark blue cardstock, Honey Bee Lovely Layers Dogwood dies, Spellbinders Sweet Birds on a Branch dies, Pink Fresh Studio Perfect Sentiments stamp and die, adhesive foam squares to pop up birds

These dogwood dies are a lovely size and go right along in scale with the darling little birds. 

Thanks for your visit today - hope you'll come back again!
