Congratulations, Baby!!

Happy Tuesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I have a couple of cards to share with you using one of the newest dies from the latest release.


The new Whispers Pacifier die so is adorable!! I paired it with baby themed papers from Lemoncraft for these cards.


Along the top, I used a Whispers Lacey Dots die (not currently in stock). The sentiment is from the Oh Baby set from Joy Clair Stamps. On the DL.ART crinkle ribbon I used a Wee Petites Button die.


I haven't had much of a chance to snap more pictures but I do have a few new birds to share. So in the Birds of My Backyard series, I'll call this one the Woodpecker edition  :)


I'll start with the cute Downy Woodpecker.


Next is the Red Bellied woodpecker. This was one of the first birds I saw when I moved here.


A clearer shot of a Red Headed Woodpecker. Such a vibrant red!!


And one of my favorites...a Pileated woodpecker. These suckers are huge.


A close-up of his red head. These guys eat so much, I can barely keep the suet cake stocked!!


A sweet picture of a Red Finch couple.


The turkeys were back in all of their puffed up glory.


So pretty!


I wasn't sure what this tiny little bird was so I did some searching I think it might be a house finch.


And last but not least, an adorable pond frog.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day :)

These are just so precious, Lisa! Any new momma would love them. I love your attention to detail. It's funny that you asked me to come help you organize your stash/craftroom because that's actually something I'm very good at and have helped my friends locally with. I would so love to quit my dayjob and advertise my services! Fun, fun to me! I actually think it would be a high demand service. One can dream... LOL! Have a wonderful week my friend, Autumn

Those baby cards are simply gorgeous Lisa. Love the pretty blooms and the vintage images. And I got so excited eyeing up those pictures of those amazing birds. Boy, would I love having that woodpecker here. We have wild turkeys but they are up higher elevations from where I live, like on the very top of our mountain.

Donna Ellis said...

Hi, Lisa! I'm so grateful more of us are sharing tidbits of our wildlife and homes with each other - it's marvelous to see the amazing animals and design ideas like this! We have Pileated Woodpeckers also and they are so fun to watch! I notice you use a "suet block" for feeding, and it is inside a cage-like feeder. Can all the birds eat from that? or just the longer-billed birds? Do squirrels eat from it? We have a lot of squirrels here, and have to squirrel proof everything, or feed disappears - 50-75% of our garden goes to squirrels LOL - not much we can do about that! Beautiful photos!

Your baby cards are pure delight - keepsakes to be treasured. The tiny star design paper in the pacifiers is REALLY cute, and the cards are amazing. Lovely designs and fantastic layering!

Hope you enjoy a great week, my friend! hugs, de

Lisa, your baby cards are as sweet as can be! I LOVE the Lemoncraft paper...where do you purchase that from? I haven't seen it in the stores, only online :( The die is so awesome...I just placed an order and can't wait to create a few things..that is if I can ever find time to craft, ugh! I did manage to squeeze a little time in the last few days finally. I really miss crafting and blogging these days.
Thanks for sharing all the bird photo's...WOW, such great shots and so clear! The turkeys are so beautiful! How fun to see so much wildlife right in your back yard! lucky!
Have a super evening!
Hugs,
Sherrie K

Oh my gosh Lisa, these baby cards are just adorable!! I love the soother die cut, how perfect is that!! The papers are just lovely and you swag across the top is a wonderful addition. You can never go wrong with pink and blue for the kiddos! Now, about those bird photos...holy cow!!! I am so jealous of the variety of birds that you get on your feeders! That doesn't look like birdseed though, what is in your feeder there? I just love the house wren, what a delicate looking creature. Your frog is loads of fun, amazing shots my friend! hugs :)

Karen said...

My sweetest friend, at last I have re-emerged and you are my first stop! These are simply the most darling baby cards ever! What a stunning pacifier die! Wow! I love the laciness of it and your brilliant idea to use starry papers for it. The baby papers are sweet as can be and I always adore the lacy dots die. These are precious and will be adored by the future recipients. :o) And your wildlife photos are stunning! Each one fills my heart with happiness.. what a blessing to be in an area with lovely and unique animal friends... and of course have the ability to capture them so beautifully with your camera. Wonderfully done, my dearest Lisa. :o)

Hugs and blessings,
Karen

Sara Barker said...

Oh, lisa, your photos of the birds are amazing! We have a few of the woodpeckers you have in our area: the Pileated Woodpeckers are the most frequently seen and the tinier Downy Woodpecker. It is a real treat to see them up close with your fabulous photography! You have a treasure trove of bird life there!

And your baby cards are sweet as can be! The papers are adorable and your addition of the lacy strip and pearls is just perfect! Big Hugs!

Laurie B. said...

Nana said...
