Now I know that this is more in the vein of a birthday card, but today was definitely a day of celebration. Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Easter day with family and friends. It was absolutely gorgeous here today. Unfortunately my hubby shared his nasty cold with me so I've been fighting that all day, but it wasn't enough to make me not appreciate all the green and critters out and about. I'll share one of those at the bottom of the post.
My card was created with the cute freebie "Celebration Penguin" that Heidi gave away on her 2 Cute Ink FB page for hitting 5000 fans. Isn't he cute! I've colored him up with Copics. I wish you could see the banner better. It didn't show up in the closeup pic, but I used some clear Wink of Stella pen on the flags and hat to make them sparkle.

I've used the sketch from Deconstructed Sketch for the layout. I'd also like to enter this in the 2 Cute Ink challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
Every spring my mom and I start keeping an eye out at our bird feeders for a particular bird. Spotting one is the highlight of our day. I believe this guy is called a Rose Breasted Grosbeak. Sorry the pictures aren't so great. I had to take them through my kitchen window which has a screen in it.
The red is so striking with the black and white. My feeders are buzzing with cardinals, blue Jays, woodpeckers, doves, and chickadees. Love the birdies of spring!
Have an amazing week!
