Birdcage, banner, and Blooms!

Spring is evident almost everywhere you turn, from the shelves stocked with Easter baskets, to finches fluttering from tree to tree. One of my favorite things ever is listening to the birds sing to one another, calling so clear and sweet. I love to sit outside and watch the squirrels scurry and the plants sway in the breeze! 

Spring I think will always be my most beloved season of all. 
As a tip of the hat to spring, here's a card I made for Cricut magazine last spring, using the Creative cards cartridge by Cricut  It's one of those cartridges I think you might look over but if you really pay attention to how much you can do with it, it may make your "I Can't live without it" list. 

Fabric flowers make a pretty little "nest" for my bluebird, I added a tiny tag stamped with a greeting of encouragement. I think we get so wrapped up in quick texts, emails, and facebook messages that we sometimes forget the power a sent in the mail or hand delivered card can have! I'm going to try to send more cards more often...... 
what do you think? do you prefer an email or instant message, or would you prefer a card?
let me know in the comments below.
XOXO~ Shantaie
