Pion Design - Celebration Songbirds

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing this feminine spring card that could be used for any celebration. The papers are from the new Pion Design collection "Days Gone By". I am so in love with all the florals and bird images in this collection, aren't they so gorgeous!

Pion products:

Guess what, it's snowing!! They are saying we may get 10-15cm overnight, so I can't wait to see what the world looks like when I wake up this morning! I hear the UK has gotten some snow, please do stay safe and warm for those of you who aren't used to this sort of thing. 

For my birds today, I have a Starling...

a male Cardinal...

and a beautiful Chickadee...

"Yep, the peanut lady has been here!! I shall sniff out every crumb she left behind."

"Hey, you with the camera! You said two shots then we take lunch break, I distinctively heard three clicks! I'm calling the Union!"
(this shot was taken before he was attacked by the hawk)

"Pardon me, peanut lady, but do you take credit?"
~Perfect Patti~

"Since I lost my one white whisker, I prefer you photograph me from this side."
~One Whisker Wally~

That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. If you have any questions or interesting tidbits about today's wildlife, please let me know.

    Great photos, enjoy your snow when it arrives, we've had about 8" and still have roads blocked due to drifting and overhanging snow. Stay safe.

  9. Of course you are in love with the florals and birds and you have used them to great effect!! Yes we had snow and the country almost ground to a halt, we certainly do not cope well with it over here, as beautiful as it is to look at!! xx

  10. This is amazing Pamellia!! Love so much the diagonal layering and the gorgeous papers! A lot of feminine laces add a lot of sweetness and that cabochon makes the birds pop from the back! Adorable creation!
    Awesome photos of your friends, as always it seems to be there with you!
    ... Rocky was attached by a hawk?? Oh no... :(

  11. Another stunner Pamellia, I love the papers and all the gorgeous layers. You always use the most beautiful embellishments too.
    Wonderful photos, and yes the UK is buried in snow, fortunately here in Inverness we don't have any, but central Scotland and England has almost come to a stop. But the snowy weather conditions are bad all over the continent, take care, Kate x

  12. The papers are indeed beautiful but the way you use them is what I love most, this card is exquisite, such a beautiful design and of course your embellishments looks wonderful too!

    One whisker Wally's name always makes me smile, he and the others are just adorable!

    Yes, we are under snow at the moment - I have never known it so cold or for snow to be so deep or last so long since I first came to Britain. We are just not equipped to deal with it and there has been so much chaos as a result. However, I hope that in a few days time we will be back to normal, whatever normal is - lol. I hope you get the snow you wish for and that you get to take some snowy shots! Big hugs, Anne xxx

  13. its stunning!
    oh love your photos.
    we have much snow here and I love it!

  14. Pamellia, you create such beauty! Your photos, your cards, they are all, SO beautiful. I'm a little in love with your 'soul' sistah. Such stunning creations hun. Hugs, Wends xoxo

  15. Another one of your beautiful cards Pamellia. Fantastic! hugs, Marlies

  16. Stunning card and love the photos...sorry about Rocky and the hawk x

  17. Oh my, this is divine Pamellia! Love the soft pastel shades and the way you've torn the paper layers looks wonderful!! You use such beautiful laces and I love the bow with the pearl button .. so pretty!! The bird image is gorgeous and perfect as the focal point!
    Beautiful wildlife photos, as always, and I'm so happy for you that you are getting the snow you wanted. How is Rocky doing? Hope he continues to improve. Have a fabulous day!! hugs xx

  18. Beautiful card, Pamellia! The wildlife photos are fabulous, as always. We got hit with the Nor'easter on Friday and have not had power since. They say it should be back late Monday night. I'm at my parents catching up on the internet. Have a wonderful day!

  19. Every card I see from you is my favorite, Pamellia! This one speaks to me with those beautiful birds and soft shades. You have such a wonderful way with the laces, too. Surely by now you must be getting low on this type of supply! I saw some beautiful vintage laces at a shop in Charlotte NC this past weekend, but they were so expensive, I had to pass.

    You know how much I adore your wildlife photography, and think of you every time I see a chickadee or a squirrel. They other day I saw a curious squirrel in a tree outside our front door who actually seemed to be conversing with me! Wished I had my phone to take a photo! I do hope you are enjoying your snow! We are just having cold days, but with lots of sunshine. Sometime I just sit in my car and soak it up! Ha! Ha! Hugs!

  20. Absolutely stunning card (and nature pics) gorgeous bow,lace and flowers

  28. Such a lovely, feminine, sweet creation, Pamellia. It reminds me of clean laundry hanging on the line, and fresh, crisp air. It’s gloriously P-style with lacy frilliness and special beauty. Love that straight up shot of snow falling, and your dear woodland friends. Wishing you happy explorations and new discoveries with these darling critter buddies. xx
