A sew perfect Birthday!

Hello everyone,
hope your week is going great!
I'm sitting here typing away while
thunderstorms are rolling by outside.
2 more hours, the weathermen says and
the light-show should be over,
I only can hope!
Today I would like to share with you 
my newest Birthday card.
Both stamps are from Inkadinkado.
Sentiment is from Stampin'up "Watercolor trio" set,
stamped on a little DMC floss bobbin.
I added yarn and a pin as embellishment.
Hope you liked my "Sew" perfect Birthday card

Also, I would like to introduce you to the newest
addition to our family.
"Mighty Max"
as we call him because
at 9 weeks and his 2 pounds
he is not afraid of anything.
So far so good, the two other cats are accepting him O.K.
or just trying to ignore him at times.

Sorry, hope you didn't get to tired looking at kitty pictures.
He is just to cute and it's been a while we had something so small
bouncing around our house!
Just one more picture...
... I snapped this one right before a ball game while
storm clouds are moving in and the sun is setting.
The sky looked just amazing!

Thanks for stopping in!
Hope you have an amazing rest of the week!

Empty Nest Symptom...

Hello everyone,
I know this day would come sooner or later,
yes, I'm suffering the empty nest symptom...
 ... from this...

 ... to this in just a few short days!
It was so much fun watching them grow up and
I'm glad I got a picture of the last remaining Robin before he
worked up enough courage and 
decided to follow his parents and siblings into our yard.
It was kind of sad to see them go
but on the up side
"we can use our front door again"!
 But my bird watching days are not quiet over yet.
A Cardinal decided to build her nest in the rose bush
right in front our dinning room window
and last week 3 chicks hatched.
Sorry, no card this week!
I been spending many hours in my other
 favorite place lately,
It's the most relaxing place after a long day of work.

Recently I been seeing a lot of Succulents popping up in stores,
gorgeous colors, shapes and sizes,
so I thought I give them a try.

Someone posted a great picture on Pinterest
planting them in an old vintage birdcage.
Digging through our shed I found this old cage,
not vintage but not to bad looking,
what do you think?

Thanks for stopping in!
Have a wonderful week 
and maybe you find some time to 
relax in your yard or start a new
Succulent project!

Happy Retirement and News from the Nest...

Happy Sunday everyone!
Wow, I cant believe the weekend is almost over,
back to work tomorrow :(
But I have to admit I had a very lazy Saturday,
well, a my kind of way lazy.
Due to rainy weather I was confined to the
HeHe and stamp-room bound!
I hate to say it but sometimes I need a rainy day!!!
And this is what I did on my lazy day...
 ... one of my dear friends is retiring this week
and I was in dyer need of a card for her.
 I decided to do this easel card for her,
all in different shades of pink.

 A little glassine bag holds a little tag,
sorry I did not get a picture of the tag,
but it says 
"Enjoy the Journey"
I can't wait to give it to her,
she is been looking forward for this day
for a long time!
Happy retirement dear friend,
so well deserved!

Sorry I could not post with out an 
update from the nest.
It's getting a little tight in the nest.
They sure are keeping mom and dad busy with the
feeding duties.
I have to say they are looking like little space aliens 
with their little fluff on their heads!

Have a wonderful week
thank you so much for stopping in!
