Beautiful You for Addicted to CAS #203

Happy Saturday.

It's the fabulous Raga's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week and this is her code word

Well, it was hard to get inspired by "rain" as we haven't seen much of that this year and we don't have any in the forecast either.  It's amazing how much I miss it when we don't have it!

However, the code word was a perfect excuse to bring out one of my old Stampin' Up! sets called Beautiful You.  It's another one of those staples that is never likely to leave my craft room.  I stamped the focal image onto my card base and again onto a piece of scrap DSP.  I then fussy cut around the umbrella (or as we would call it in England - brolly!) and her dress and glued those down.  Just a little simple coloring, and a sentiment - and my clean and simple card was complete

I hope you will join us and play along with Raga's challenge.  We can't wait to see what you do with it!  I'll be back tomorrow with my Paper Players card, but thought you might like a view of what has been visiting our neck of the woods.  Firstly, one of my favorite summer visitors - the catbird.  If you have never heard a catbird call - you can check out their call at this link.  They have the pretties songs - but it's their call that gives them their name.  If you are interested in learning more about the Catbird - and the their songs and other calls, you can check out this link. 

Here's the photo of one of them visiting our jelly feeder:

Such a pretty bird!  The redbellied is another regular visitor at the feeder and we have had a lot of fun watching both the male and female trying to teach their young ones to get their own food!

I love the way the woodpeckers balance - they really are amazing birds.  I hope you enjoyed a little peek into our avian visitors!  I'll be back tomorrow.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.

Yes, very clean and simple! I like how you stamped on the patterned paper and cut it out to glue on the base stamp. Nice! But I especially love your bird photos. We feed birds in our yard and at the moment have tons of little golden finches, hummingbirds, scrub jays, and an occasional woodpecker. xoxo Fran
