Hi jaydee! First of all, I adore that color combo you used! I just added it to my "book of favorites". So rich and elegant. Stunning card with all of the beautiful bling and that fabulous bow. Wow!

I just love the great photos you have captured of all of the visitors to your garden. I hope that you and Lou are able to spend some time relaxing this weekend. Hugs! :)

Fab job with the sketch, I love all of your overlapped stamping, well done!

Thanks for playing along with the Mischief Makers this week!

Beautiful card. I love the picture of the pileated Woodpecker. Absolutely stunning.

Kelly Wentling

What a lovely card. Simple and stunning! That is beautiful ribbon too. This isn't a color combo I would normally put together and it looks nice. Guess that is why it is called a challenge!

Love your garden pics and feathered friends. I might need to try to get a feeder like you have for the woodpeckers. We have had pileated woodpeckers in the winter eating suet and I used the same discription as you. They are so beautiful and prehistoric! They always make my day whenever I get to see one and that isn't too often. Maybe the addition of this style of feeder would do the trick.

Have a wonderful weekend with Lou!

Oh WOW those colors really look amazing together! Love the bold bow with the lovely pink doily background. Your border is spectacular!


Love the card and I so love that ribbon too! I bought several rolls. To bad they retire things that we really like and that ribbon is so easy to work with. (you did a great job on your bow)
Woodpeckers are common in our area, the only thing is, they want to peck on the gutters of the house too. Drives us nuts!
Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend!


Love the richness of your card - beautiful color combo. Great bird photos, too.

Love all aspects for your card Jaydee, colours are lovely. Oh the woodpecker photo is awesome, took me back down memory lane to when I saw my first woodpecker in Nth Carolina, I could not work out the noise I was hearing from the tree near the pond where I was fishing, so went back up to the house and Cora filled me in on what the noise was! I could not get too clear a view of him though!
YAY!!! I woke around 4.30 this morning to the sound of rain on the roof, and it has been raining quite a bit all day, thanks be to God for sending much needed rain to Perth!
Have a lovely weekend with Lou.

That is the best Bow you have ever done....love the card. Cant wait to get home...the picture of the garden bring a smile to my day....
See you soon


As much as I enjoyed the masculine cards (and the inspiration they provided!), I'm delighted to see a "girly" card once again. :o)

Oh how I adored Purely Pomegranate and was sad when they retired it. :o( That ribbon is utterly gorgeous and I LOVE your take on the sketch.

As for the Pale Plum, I used to pair it with Mellow Moss...:sigh: You know, I wasn't sad to see most of the colors go, but the loss of Mellow Moss (and a couple others) really made me sad. Oh, and why oh why didn't they bring back Kiwi Kiss or Cool Caribbean? Just sayin'. ;o)

We have a Pileated that plays on the playground sometimes. We also have another smaller one that comes to the feeder. That photo is stunning! And, I don't know how you could resist those cute little oriole tail feathers?

I wish Lou safe travels home. I hope you both have a chance to get out and enjoy your gardens. :o)

Happy Friday to everyone!

Christy Q

Wow, a pileated woodpecker in your very own backyard! My mom would be so envious as she's been on a lifelong quest to see one. And my dad and I have both seen one without even trying. LOL

BTW, the color combo on your card is just delightful as is the layout!
