Happy Wednesday so glad you stopped by. Our challenge at The Pixie Cottage is Anything Goes and there is also a sketch, your choice. I am making paper bag albums for a upcoming boutique so this is one of the covers. Using the lovely Pixie Cottage hummingbird image for the focal point I floated shades of green around it. The corner flourish is a Cheery Lynn that my sweet sis got for me. After stitching all around it I used the Stampin Up small wonder stamp which seemed so fitting. I think hummers are such wondrous little creations of God, they fascinate me with their agility and speed.
Sometimes when I'm in the garden they
will come and take a little dust bath or
flit through the spray as I water all
the time twittering as if to sing me a song of thanks. That is why I chose this sentiment.
You all can join in as its anything goes so come on over.

Entering Challenges:
Stampin' Sisters in Christ: Variegated Colors...Traci chose the scripture James 1:2-3, be sure to read her very insightful thoughts on this

Great way to use that corner die, Davi. I have it and decided there is a lot that can be done with it. Your card is so sweet with the hummer and the sentiment is just perfect, that's for sure. I think you have those musical notes for the hummers to stay in tune as they sing to you. :-)

So lovely, Davi -- the green is truly marvelous! I, too, love hummers, and think they are such a gift when they happen to flit into my garden. Now you've got me longing for summer and their sweet visits! :-)
