Heartfelt Creations Wednesday Inspiration

I think that spring is here. Today the sun was out and the birds were chirping great inspiration for this Heartfelt Creations .

This beautiful bird and branch  is from the the precut stamp set  HCPC 3523 Feathered Friends all I  did was perch the bird in front of the window. I turned  HCPC 3443 Palace Entry into a window on a stucco wall. Then I added a few HCPC 3502 Mini Vintage Floret and cut them with their matching die. This just makes me glad that it is spring.

Please stop by the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see the talented designs that are sure to inspire you.

Hi, Linda (happy after D-Day) or is it (T-Day?) whatever the proper term - Best Wishes to you! LOL Beautiful card, my friend, with such wonderful little touches and cheery Spring colors. Did you get snow today? We are in the 90s during the day - not supposed to happen until June - so strange - and then to hear it is snowing in your neck of the woods. Thanks for always sharing your incredible artwork, Linda. hugs, de

I came back again today, Linda - I especially like the pink flowers staggered on your card, and the embroidery thread used the way you have it. So happy and whimsical - fabulous idea! Are you deep breathing yet from tax season coming to a close? Or still busy with your last minute nellies? hugs, de
