Our Design Team challenge this week at Cooking With Cricut was to use swirls, twirls or flourishes on our project. I just recently purchased the fabulous Cindy Loo Cricut cartridge from eBay. It is my new favorite cartridge -- just warning you . . . 'cause you're gonna be seeing it a lot! LOL!
There are tons of flourishes, swirls, twirls, flowers and other wonderful images along with a really cute font on this cartridge. And I love the bird and birdhouse . . . and the deer is adorable . . . and . . . well you get the idea!
The inspiration for my card came from the recent influx of birds at our bird feeder. We have a wonderful glassed in porch on our house that looks out on a heavily wooded Audubon Preserve. My Mom gave our six year old daughter a bird feeder for Christmas and Dee hung it up on a black, wrought-iron hanger right outside the porch. Now I know that some of you are saying, "That's a strange gift for a 6 year old." True. But not this 6 year old. Ever since Demi could walk (at 11 months old), she would always make a bee line for my Mom's bird books. Mom loves birds and loves to know "who" they are and so she has several field guides to birds of North America that live on her coffee table. And Demi has always been infatuated by them. So year before last, for her birthday, Mom gave Demi her very own copy of the North American Field Guide to Birds. She immediately declared that it was her favorite gift! So a bird feeder was naturally the next step.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my project this week. Leave me a note and let me know you were here -- I love reading your comments! And if you have a blog, please leave me the address . . . I'd love to come and visit!
