Sweet songs and CPS

Hi there dear friends!!! Happy Friday!! The last few mornings it has been a such a treat to hear the little birds sweetly singing as they greet the day. When I hear those beautiful melodies, it makes me remember that despite the gray skies and snow, spring isn't far away!! It is so good to take that minute and enjoy those heavenly tunes. Sometimes in the rush of life, I forget to take a minute to enjoy those simple pleasures that surround me and thank my Creator for all He has done. I hope you remember to take a minute to enjoy the beauty that surrounds us. It is good for the soul.

Birds have definitely been on my mind these days, as I have been stamping like crazy with PTI's Little Bitty Birds. However, today I thought I would play with my new October Afternoon papers and incorporate a stamp that I have had forever from Studio Calico. It is good to get out those oldies but goodies out and rejuvenate them!!

Here's the CPS #205 Sketch:

Very cute elements on this card Kristii. The bird is adorable, even though I too am partial to Little Bitty Bird! That red bow really pops on this card.
