Monochrome bird on a branch

Greetings, today's design was very easy, to get the bird to stand out I added a black die cut behind the white one.  I have been working in the yard.  Finally our weather has warmed up and my garden is starting to grow.  When we bought the property the garden boxes were already here.

Dee's Distinctively - Chickadee
Memory Box - Perched Reed Bird, Nutty Acorn & Woodland Branch
Poppy Stamps - Pine Springs

Broccoli, sage, chives. mint and cauliflower
I used Solo Cups over my cucumber seeds because the birds are eating the seedlings.

Snap peas growing

Every year a Steller's Jay makes a nest under out deck


  1. Beautiful card Diane. I like the way you used the contrast to define the bird!
    How lovely to have those garden boxes, they look so tidy and are brimming with lovely vegies.
    Your garden is wonderful, love the photos :D)

  2. Beautiful monochrome card love the dies and the black dropped shadow-plants look healthy and a blackbird has made a nest in sons outside wood store
