This is beautiful, Jaydee! I love the colors, especially the pear card base, and even more so with the texture of the embossing. What an amazing bird, it must have been so cool to see him in real life. You're so lucky you got such a great picture. You must have your camera ready at all times!

I love the way you altered the proportions of the sketch to showcase that fabulous embossed panel Jaydee - it really makes your card a wow! Great bird photo too!

Jaydee, this is just beautiful! Certainly a breath of Spring when I saw your card! Love the embossed background and the gorgeous shades! The yellow is just so calming!
I have never been to England except through pictures and books but, I long to see the castles, the changing of the guard and attend Wimbledon! Bucket List items for me!


And the flag!! I love England's flag!!


My grandfather was from England and I've always wanted to go there. What I love about London is all of the architecture: the cathedrals, Big Ben, etc. And, ofcourse, the Royal Family!!

I love all of your photos of the wildlife!! Especially the birds!! You also are a talented card mamer! I read your blog all the time!


Fun spring card! That embossing folder is awesome...the texture shows up so well on your photo,too.

Beautiful picture of the woodpecker!

Loved your card today. The green is great with the embossed texture and the butterfly over the colorful strips of paper. I've been to England but not to London - would love to go and just to see anything that is British. My father's family came from England and I have done some research on some of the area that was their home. Love your wildlife photos!! Thanks much.

Gorgeous card, Jaydee...this embossing folder is to die for! Love that gorgeous textured flower and your colors/papers are beautiful. Lovely use of the sketch!


Jaydee, I think this is one of the prettiest cards you've ever created! That embossing folder is a perfect background for your pretty spring colors, and that butterfly looks like it could spring right into flight! AND of course, I am jealous of your pileated...to get that close is amazing! Wonderful blog candy too...woo hoo, who wouldn't want that?!

Beautiful card, love the color. Pleated woodpeckers are so interesting to watch, another favorite bird. If I could go to London I would love to see the beautiful architecture, changing of the guard and watch the changing of the guard...oh my, just so much to dream about.

I really love this card. And all of your bird pictures! I also love Westminster Abbey. I have a relative buried there! 😊


When our daughters were 5 and 9, we were camping and visiting as many places in Europe as we could. While hiking in the Swiss alps, we saw an English family, and their little girl wore the cutest sweater with a St. Bernard appliqued on it, with a wooden barrel button around its neck. We admired it, and asked the mom where she'd gotten it. "Marks and Spencer". I recognized the name, and when we went to London, we immediately found the store on Oxford St. And yes, they still had the sweaters, with both adorable plaid pleated skirts to match and corduroy pants! A small thing, but we all loved those outfits for years! London has everything, for sure, but this was a wonderful shopping memory! Now I want to go back and ride the Eye--seeing so much of London on a slow ferris wheel sounds great!


I love the old cathedrals, museums, shopping and getting around on the Tube. Yes, it's difficult to choose one thing. Great city I have visited several times. Love your cute card today with the reminder to use older items from our stash. Great picture of the Pilated.


Happy Easter to you and Lou as well.
Beautiful card and love the embossed background as well as that butterfly.
Never been to London but for me, I would like to see the changing of the guard; Big Ben as well as the Kew Gardens and then take A Thames river cruise, and Oh, 1 more thing; the London Zoo
