Pink and red birds

I'm alive, I promise. 
Just going through some crazy times currently.

Thanks to all of you who have emailed asking if everything is okay. I truly feel blessed by the friendship of so many of my readers and online pals whom I've never met. You guys are the best.



I pulled this card out of my draft blog posts to submit it for the color challenge that Nichole issued during the Papertrey Anniversary celebration. It's been sitting in blogger draft for ages and I was delighted to see that it qualified for the color scheme that Betsy chose
I had not posted it before because I intended to re-photograph it. You can see where it was a bit over-exposed in the foreground right corner. 
Ah well, those things slip away from us, don't they.

Not a whole lot to say about it except that everything is PTI! I used 5 different stamp sets on it, can you believe it?! Damask Designs, Round  Round (the 2009 Anniversary set), Bird Watching Additions, Birds of a feather, and Out on a Limb. 

Thanks for stopping by today. Your kind words mean a lot to me!
