Sunday Afternoon

Hello Everyone!

I'm so happy to share with you today, my first card using the newest Pion Design collection "Patchwork of Life". All the soft pinks and vintage feminine images gave me a vision of a sunny Sunday afternoon without a care in the world. This card would work for any feminine occasion!

I hope everyone is enjoying summer so far. We have had much better weather this year than we did last year, so I have been spending a ton of time outside. So many squirrels to photograph and not enough time to do it! lol. For today though, I thought I would share some photographs that I took at the Bird Kingdom in Niagara Falls. What a wonderful experience that was, one I plan to do again next year!

White Cheeked Turaco

Chaco Chachalaca

Nicobar Pigeon

Zebra Finch 

Java Sparrow

Back on the home front, there are babies everywhere!! What a wonderful time of year!!
Baby Duck

Baby Geese

"OK Mom, what now?"
"Patience little one. Eventually the human will go inside, and then we can grab all the squirrel food!"
Baby Starling named Taylor who has taken a liking to me!

So is this an alien, is it a bug, or is it a baby Red Winged Blackbird? You be the judge! Lol

Let's not forget about my darling baby squirrels!!
"I'm pretty new around here, so I have to ask... Isn't there supposed to be food in here?!! 
~Baby Mickey~

"What the hell is that thing! Is it just supposed to sit there like that! I think I saw it move!" 
~Baby Kay~

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.

  27. Holy layers, Squirrel Girl! That card is pure shabby girly layered goodness. Just gorgeous. Thanks for the bird pix-- I had zebra finches in college, and they were so fun to be around!

  28. Beautiful card! And lovely pics. It has been way to hot where I live to go outside which makes me sad. We cant go outside until 6pm when it starts to cool down slightly.

  29. Hi Pamellia,
    lovely to have you back from your hols and posting your very beautiful creations.
    This one is so pretty and very feminine and gorgeous and so stunning.
    As usual you have created such wonderful and super layers.
    The pretty pink colour is so super.
    As usual you photos are outstanding and so superb.
    My this is my first glance at some of those birds and they are beautiful species.
    Also super photos of your wonderful and cute furry friends as well.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  30. Gorgeous feminine creation love the beautiful papers,gorgeous flowers and layers--love the little zeb I used to breed these and we also have new family additions 2 little ducksalthough not so little now they are 2months old and three chickens so that means three eggs a day too lol

  31. My computer was in danger as I drooled over that wonderful card Pamellia.
    Loving your feathered friends - we are nearly at mid-winter here and I saw a pair of swans with 5 tiny gray cygnets on our lake the other day!! Admittedly the winters are not as harsh as yours, but....
    Your baby squirrels are gorgeous!

  32. How lovely to have those gorgeously pinked up layers like that and delicately "bundled" with the lace. Pamellia, there is no way that the girly girl in us all would not jump out and attach to this amazing creation! It's pure loveliness with the pearly butterflies, and softness of the girl's attire. I'm so much like Snoopy's "Pig Pen" character - keeping white or the palest of pastels clean would be impossible. LOL Beautifully done!

    Been thinking of you these past weeks, and holding you close in my thoughts and prayers. By the looks of your incredibly awe-inspiring photos, I would say Mother Nature is gifting you to see her beauty everywhere, in the tiniest of delicacies. I never cease to be wowed by the tiny wasps, bees, and other pollinators who proliferate around my flowers at different times of the day. Each species seems to come at different temperatures and "sunlight-amounts" of the day. The hummers enjoy the cool mornings and late afternoons. During our Florida summers, all the insects and birds seem to take siestas in the mid afternoon heat until around 4:30, when all comes to life again.

    Wishing you a fantastic day of wonders and color! xx

  33. Absolutely gorgeous Pamellia. I love your delicate pink and white layered elements and the butterfly and flowers are truly gorgeous. Adore your photos, thanks for sharing. Hope you are well. Hugs. Tracy x

  34. Hi Pamellia
    Good to see you back.
    A real girlie card, lovely image and beautifully layered.
    Best wishes.

  35. Well, I finally made it back, and I can see Punkin' is also late to the party! It seems we are all finding things to do outdoors and away from blogland that we don't always drop by in as timely a fashion as we used to. Your card is amazing! Love all those layers, lace and beautiful shabby bow!

    Laughing at the squirrels checking out your tree stump! Every time I see my tree stump/squirrel thingy, I think of you! Beautiful birds at Bird Kingdom and you got some awesome shots. Are you far from Niagara Falls? If you are, lucky you! I used to love visiting there as a child. Sending hugs to you!
