Sunrise/Sunset and More White Birds

The last sunset of August in the company of lifelong friends.  I want to savor every one of them.  The sunsets and the time with friends.  

The card below is CASed from Julie Gearinger.  Please click on this link to see her explicitly wonderful directions that made it possible for me to put it together.  

We've seen so many beautiful sunsets this summer I had to try this.  I am going to try another color palette soon too.  

The finished project - uses Wetlands stamp set and the star fish is from another set.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  There were two punches used on this card - care to venture a guess?

I needed two anniversary cards and figured as long as I was doing one, I might as well do two.  Well, actually I did three and I'm saving one for another occasion.   Hard to tell if this scene is a sunrise or a sunset.  

A quick bike ride the next day to see if the birds were close to the street met with success.  I had to slow down and sneak up on them because they were so close.  There was a man walking his dog coming up behind me and I hoped that they wouldn't scare them away.  

I know, I get carried away with taking pictures of these birds.  I just can't help myself.


  1. Beautiful sunset . . . that inspired a beautiful card. As always love your bird photos.

  2. I too love the bird photos - no problem here that you get carried away with them. The more the merrier - and the same goes for the beautiful cards. OK, so I know I got Calm Seas partly for the birds because then I thought I wouldn't want to get Wetlands too - but now I'm not so sure.
    What a lovely sunset, too. It feels like a while since I've seen a "real" one since the cloudier weather moved in on us here.

  3. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous cards!!!!! The scene looks so complex! I love the warmth of the colors and the added touches like the text in the background! Beautiful! It's amazing how much Nature can inspire us!!!! :)
