More Birds of a Feather

Here are two more cards with PTI's Birds of a Feather.

I sincerely wish this bird flew in the other direction. It directs the eye to the left, which seems wrong to me. As an obsessive reader, I think eyes should move to the right. But this card makes me happy anyway. The flourish is from PTI's Silent Night set, which I really just bought for the sentiments.

This card is for my sister, who is expecting (surprise!) her third child in November. I'm hoping he is born on my birthday so we can be birthday buddies. The layout of this card is so perfectly CAS and very versatile; I'm pretty sure it was a Fall-To Layout on the Clean and Simple blog recently. Love that blog....

  1. Oh Susan I LOVE that second card!
    The nest and eggs really appeal to me, and they certainly do make an excellent new baby card :)

  2. I love that New Beginnings card. For some reason I have a thing for bird's nests. Both are great though!

  3. These are so lovely. I like how you managed to add ribbon to the first and still kept it easily mailable. Love all the white on white and the popped up panel. It's such an inspiration to scroll through all your designs. I'm so glad to have become acquainted with your blog!

  4. I love the blues/white here, that baby card is fabulous!

  5. sigh, so beautiful. I feel relaxed jsut looking at these cards!
