Pion Design - Pink Valentine Roses

Hello Everyone!

I hope everyone had a fabulous week, now it's time for the weekend! YAY! Today I am sharing a pink Valentine's card featuring Pion Design papers from the "Where the Roses Grow" collection. Accenting these romantic papers with some vibrant pink flowers and ribbon adds a touch of shabby contrast.

As I write this post, it is actually snowing outside! They are predicting 8-10 cm of the fluffy white stuff and I could not be happier!! If it's still around in the morning, I will be getting some brand new snowy photos, YAY!! Until then, I am still sharing photos from my trip up north and when we had the snow last month.

Blue Jay:
Anyone up for a good ole game of 'Bobbing-for-Peanuts'?

A Chickadee and a Red Breasted Nuthatch...

a female Cardinal...

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

One of the Twins (BEN / MATT):
"It's coming. I can smell it in the air. A storm is coming!"

One of my lake friends:
"Hmmm, this is confusing. I've never been taller than the peanut lady before!"

For my macro today, a snowy leaf in the morning sun...

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.


  1. The vibrant pink on your beautiful soft pink and white card produces a wonderful pop of colour and really catches the eye. It seems to be snowy season, we had some in the air yesterday, a little laid on the top of my car, but nothing settled, shame xxx

  2. More than gorgeous card and your pics are wonderful, xxx

  3. LOVE the gorgeous rose card, so beautiful. We've had snow all night, and it's all white outside today. That's fun. Happy Weekend, hugs, Valerie

  4. Just love all of your cards Pamellia but I have to say they are marginally surpassed by your talent for photography! The squirrels are just darlings, the macro shots stunning! I'm so glad I found your blog and your beautiful cards and videos - toatally brilliant. Big hugs Sandy xoxoxo

  5. An utterly beautiful card and so so so lovely and AMAZING photos!
    Happy weekend Pamellia!

  6. At last some snow for you--not sure I would be so pleased but I know you love it so that's great.

    Your creature friends look happy as well but so they should as you always treat them well.

    Oh yes! The card is very beautiful with the wonderful pale shades and Pamellia layers.

    Love Chrissie xx

  7. Love the pale shades wit those vibrant pops of pink, another stunner!
    Your photos always take my breath away, I have probably said that before, your squirrel friends all look so happy and well fed, they are lucky to have you, specially with more snow on the way... My favourite photo of today is that bluejay against the pale winter sun, wow, worthy to be printed on canvas and put on a wall!

  8. oooh those cute faces on the squirrel, so gorgeous. No snow here just hot hot hot....
    Love your gorgeous showpiece today and those colours are just beautiful.xx{aNNie}

    Fabulous landscapes photos, really magical! The sweet blue jay is my favourite birdie, such fabulous colours! The squirrels always make me smile... and LOVE those so furry ears of Perfect Patty! Adorable!! :)

  10. Hello dear friend
    I have been absent for a while, was busy at work after my vacation and lots to do at home.
    It's an awesome card with so many wonderful detail and I wonder every time when I drool over the pics of your cards how someone is able to be so creative!
    I also love the wildlife shots, birds and squirrels are just so beautiful, I have no words.
    I hope the snow stays a while. Ours is gone since two weeks and it is quite warm with 5°C :o)
    xoxo, Ally

    So, just how much snow did you get? It kept trying to snow here all weekend but every time a few snowflakes fell it quickly turned to rain. Nice and sunny here this morning and it is so much warmer today.

    Have a great week.

  34. My dear friend, may I share a little secret with you... I saw this beauty over the weekend and didn't have the heart to comment. You see, I love it with all of my heart and for some reason that made me sad with the trying times going on. Isn't that just ridiculous. But I am here now to tell you that your work continues to inspire me beyond description. The softness amongst so many layers you achieve cannot be duplicated. The trims, borders, and tags tucked within are gorgeous.. and you already know that heart focal point is my favorite. I adore the vibrant blossoms atop the soft color palette of the papers. Stunning.
    Also stunning are your pictures, which warm my heart and deliver sunshine to my soul. Sending endless love and light your way, Pamellia. :)

    Hugs and blessings,

  35. OOOOH! How did I miss this on? Oh, now you have gone and melted my heart, Pamellia! I was never a pink girl before I "met" you, but I am a convert (when someone else makes it, of course) and I am in LOVE with this delicate make! Since I'm off to work, let me just summarize with one word--suprcalefragelistic!

    Of course, I have to say something about your photos--AHH-MAZ-ING! Always my favorite to see those sweet chickadees eating from your hand and that you were yet able to capture the instant on your camera! Wow! Wishing you a beautiful day, my friend!

  36. I missed this one! Don't know how that happened but it is exquisite! The pops of the bright pink ribbon against the soft colours is so beautiful and I love the little tag tucked amongst the layers. The lovely resin heart, the gorgeous layers and all the luscious lace add up to another one of your amazing cards Pamellia.
    .. and then there are your photos!! So delightful as always and my fave this time is of those sweet little chickadees feeding from your hand .. pure magic!!
    Have a wonderful day!! hugs xx

  37. Another wonderful confection of a card - and I'm so in love with the snowy landscape of bare branches and the magnificent sculptural figure silhouetted against the sky. Do I need to tell you again how much I love the birds and squirrels!?!
    Alison x

  38. Pamellia, Your card is exquisite! I just adore the roses!!I can almost smell them!

  39. Gorgeous card love the beautiful pink roses and shabby bow,love the delicate coloured papers and all your fabulous layers
    Carol x

  40. Wooow, a soft pink heaven, that's what it is, Pamellia! So delicate and so beautiful! I love the papers you used in such a brilliant way! It's spectacular, my friend!

    I would rate your photography as 10+! You are an absolute PRO, my friend! I am your big fan as well as my daughter! Sending all my hugs to you! Branka xx

  41. Oodles and oodles or lace and pink and fluffy stuff. Yeppers, this is Bubbles! So lovely and soft. Your use of the papers is exceptional and perfect. Those tiny tags always steal my heart and of course that heart is amazing (not mine but the one on the card). Haha! Lovely pictures! Hugz to you muffin! ~Doc
