You've Got (bird-)Mail!

Pin It So, I've been doing this blog thing for a couple of months now, and while I'm still the "newbie" in most areas of the blog-o-sphere, there have been a few people who have not only offered words of encouragement and support, but who have also provided an endless amount of inspiration.  Virginia Lu of "Yes, Virginia" (which my mother tells me is from a song! :) is one of those people.

I originally was introduced to her work thru the Flickr Hero Arts group and quickly became an admirer.  Virginia shows no fear in attempting new techniques and her approach to blogging is honest and real and (often) very funny.  I appreciate that!

Anywho, Virginia often features pics and anecdotes of her super-talented kids and recently decided to host a challenge on her blog inspired by some photos her daughter had taken.  Check out the post here.  The challenge is a Rainbow theme.  I decided to use the color theme and send some encouragement of my own  -- so here we are --  Yes, Virginia....  I'm Inspired!

Thanks for stopping by...  I appreciate you and your kind words and I will be back later today with another little something I'm super-excited about!  Wishing you clear skies and much happiness today!  :)

ETA:  My mom thinks this looks like one of the "Angry Birds"  -- haha!  There will be no sling-shot dive-bombing attempts made on you or your residence as a result of viewing this post!  :)

  1. Aw.. Jennifer, reading your post makes me blushing all over ;)! Your card is simply gorgeous! I love the layering with the Echo Park paper and die cut. The sweet parrot holding the letter is darling!And the distressed folded corner adds a great interest to the design....( I can go on and on..)etc. There are so many lovely elements in this card and you made it with such a perfect balance. This card makes me super happy! Thank you so much for playing my little challenge! I can't wait to hear your little extra something next! HUGS!

  2. I agree with you about Virginia. She's so sweet and supportive. I love her blog and her creativity! I finished my card for the challenge and it's begging to be photographed now. I love all the layers and flowers, so gorgeous. I didn't think anything about the bird till you mentioned your mom but I kind-of see what she's talking about! Now I want to go knock stuff over with flying birds :)
