Monday greetings! I’ve been working on some birthday cards – both children and adult – for a special order, and I’ll be sharing some of those this week. Today’s card uses an image I’d colored in advance, and I thought it would be pretty for one of the adults. It’s a digital image from Squigglefly called Simple Pleasures Birdbath.
I printed on Flourishes Classic White cardstock and colored with Copic markers. This image makes me think of spring and my own birdbath which is often spilling over with flowers of some sort. The raccoons were always knocking the bowl off its pedestal when they climbed up to get at the water so I planted flowers in it instead. The first year I used fish fertilizer in the planter, and one day I was out working in the garden when I heard a contented chirring sound. I followed it to its source and found a raccoon happily digging away to get at the fish it supposed was in there somewhere. No more fish fertilizer in my garden!
I hope this day finds you well and happy. Enjoy your week!
