~~Hummingbirds in Flight ~~

Good morning Y'all.....Happy Friday!! Dan and I have really enjoyed watching all the beautiful lil hummers that have taken over our yard in the last few weeks. I guess they are fueling up for the big flight to Central America, because Dan has had to make food and fill the feeders several times a week. Those lil buggers are SO territorial and we both get a big kick out of watching them hoovering and dueling over the feeders.We have about a dozen pink crepe myrtle trees and they perch in them all during the day. Hence, the inspiration for this card. I used Home Accents for the hummingbirds and Home Decor for the branch. I used stickles on the flowers and then sprayed the entire card with Smooch Spritz and boy did that make a big difference ! I added the pearls and there you have it, my ode to the precious Hummingbird! Thanks for stopping by ad I hope y'all have a great weekend !!!



oh my goodness, Joy! I love this so much,

I had my feeder out, but no hummers this year. we have seen eagles flying overhead though.
they are a beautiful sight! and I have seen hundreds of dragonflies flying over the fresh cut hay.
enjoy you day!


This is really a wonderful card and depicts the "swarm" of hummers when they flit into site. My friend Marcia had about 10 feeders and the hummingbirds are almost friendly. They flit right in front of your face, almost as if they are going to land on your nose. They are a delight to watch. I love your card.


this is so sweet!


This is just great!!! We have a couple of hummers that visit us. They are just so beautiful, just like your card!! :)


This is so delicate and beautiful, Joy! I so love watching hummingbirds! Love the sparkle! xxD

Welcome to My World

This sight is dedicated to the art of card making....of which I am addicted ! I began making cards a few months before Dan was deployed to Iraq.I wanted to make sure he had a new card to open every day, so I used BlueMountian.Co and created him 2 months worth of cards !About a year ago I saw that famous infomercial for a little bug called a Cricut.Well, after watching it numerous times, I HAD to have it...and I ordered it!!!Then I found the Cricut Message Board and I hit pay dirt!!! I was, and still am so inspired by some of the talented women on that board!I have to give them credit for making me the card maker that I am today!!!
Thank you ladies, from the bottom of my heart!
I hope you enjoy looking at my cards, as much as I enjoy making them!!!
