Just a note, we have a Critter Camera mounted in our backyard.  Recently when we were viewing the footage there were of course images of deer sniffing the camera.  One night the motion sensor on the camera light up the flash and captured not one but 4 raccoons running to the bird feeder.  One climbed up the feeder and just sat there eating the seeds.  It looked like the were having a party in out backyard.

  7. A beautiful card Diane and the design is gorgeous. It's amazing what goes on at night. I tend to go to bed around 2 am and one night our garden sensor light came on. I went to the window and watched a mummy fox and her 2 babies playing in the garden. The cubs liked smelling a lavender bush and play fighting. It was great fun watching them. Hugs, Carol S.xx

  17. so pretty love the design and those sweet flowers love and hugs Carole x

  18. This is so cheerful! It is cold and pouring rain here, so this brightens my day! Thanks for sharing!

  19. The MS edge punch created the prettiest lace on this sparkling card. The yellow is such a cheery & uplifting color, and the white & yellow just sing 'springtime'. Having just enjoyed a 'for real lace' card over at Maxine's, it was more fun to come and enjoy the paper lace. I love the pretty green vine with the pink posies (they made me think of the frosting cake flowers!) and that butterfly is perfect to add another spring time color to the mix. Like the sparkle inlay with the wing treatment. So pretty! TFS & Hugs

  20. What an awesome butterfly and gorgeous die cut flowers, Diane! Your card is gorgeous, as usual!!

  21. Beautiful card love the flowers and border
