Spring is in the air

The birds around here are all nesting and that set me thinking about a quick card using my much-loved 8" x 8" Mariposa papers:
Really quick and easy after the marathon snippets roll call yesterday :)

I used:

- 7" x 5" cream card stock

- SU Certainly Celery card and a trimmed Mariposa sheet

- bird, nest and little flowers from a lovely K and Company chipboard sticker pack - thank you again Bernie

- beige organza ribbon from the ribbon box

Where did the weekend go then? My day yesterday was spent largely away from the craft room and internet, and it was a nice change I must admit :) Bet there's some catching up to do on snippets playground visits though.

Have a nice day!

That is beautiful Di, lovely subtle colours with a gorgeous image.

I love to hear the birds singing, it makes me glad to be alive knowing that the circle of life is continuing (wow, bit deep for a Monday lunchtime me thinks ;))

Have a great day, take care xx
