A Thought Away

This is my post at the
Dies R Us blog today.

Here it is already the 7th day in January...
Doesn't it seem it was just Christmas yesterday?
I guess time sure does fly as they say.

Speaking of 'flying",
I have a birdie card for you today.
Every Fall we have 100's of birds that gather here
on their way south.
It is fun to see, however you have to be careful
or you will have 'hi-lites' in your hair where you least expect!

The birds return each Spring back on their way north.
My kitties get great pleasure in watching all the activity

So, that brings us to today's card.
I used  Cheery Lynn Designs Birch Tree With Critters,
(however I didn't add the critters to this one)
cut from scraps of paper.

The clouds behind the tree are a 'negative' cut
using Impression Obsession Clouds.
I will save the die cut clouds for a later use.
I added more scraps of papers behind each cloud.
I then just 'sort of'' fussy cut around the tree and clouds
to add a bit of interest.

I used  Impression Obsession Small Bird Set for my
fancy orange birds.  
These birds were cut from 'snippet's of Color Burst paper
I had left over, which gives them each a unique design.

The cat is Impression Obsession Cat Set.

Oh, cute! I wish our clouds looked like that. What a happy scene in the middle of winter. We have hummingbird feeders out for our Annas that stay all winter.
