Pion Design - With Love

Hello Everyone!

Today I'm sharing a feminine card that could be used for any occasion featuring the gorgeous papers from the Pion Design collection "My Dearest Sofia".  I never get tired of all the beautiful pink flowers!

The inspiration for this card came from my sweet and talented friend Lisa of A Mermaid's Crafts. It's a combination of a few cards of hers that really caught my eye. She is a crafter you won't wanna miss out on, so drop in and say hello and you'll surely be as inspired as I always am! Thanks Lisa!

Autumn is really blooming now in the woods and I've been taking full advantage! I don't often aim my camera up at the trees, but sometimes the beauty is just too hard to resist. This was taken out in The Shire, a place I don't visit often any more.

"Wait, I look better from this angle. OK, click away."
~Mr Blue Jay~

As the cold weather arrives, so do my sweet Chickadee friends! One of my favourite winter things to do is feed these darling birds!

After the Grackles migrate out, the Blackbirds take control of the trees. They are everywhere and they're not subtle about it either! They're beautiful... but I'm glad they'll migrate out soon too! 

"Don't give me that look human! You told me I could drop in for lunch anytime!" 
~Big Kate~

"I'm just so darned happy it's not hot anymore, I'm wearing a fur coat you know!" 
~a trail friend~

"Hey you! Come out from behind that tree, you're making me nervous!" 

"I'm a panther. I'm in stealth mode. When the human looks away, I'll pounce and steal her peanuts!"
~Patty Cake~

"Seriously, did you just ask me to hold that pose? You know I'm a squirrel, right!" 
~Betty Boop~

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. Gorgeous card and wonderful photos of your little friends. Have a great November, hugs, Valerie

  2. The sweetness of this card is stunning, my friend! You has been inspired from Lisa's works, but your personal touch shines very much! :D Love the elegance and the delightful shabby design! The lace and the string of pearls compliment very well the lovely papers and all the sweet butterflies! Love the tag on the pocket and the distressed layers, I have to try this style, one day! :) Amazing card!
    Patty Cake as a panther makes me giggle... :D how fun and cute! Love all your friends, you know...especially the squirrels, but the photos of the birdies you show us today are just AMAZING!! That Blue Jay is wonderful, such a great photo!! And I always love seeing the Chickadee eating from your hands! :) Such a sweetness! You are a lucky lady!
    Here the Autumn isn't too much cold, and the leaves fall down slowly...
    A big hug from Italy! :)

  3. Oh, Pamellia, what a magic moment you've added to my hectic day today! How exciting to see your BEAUTIFUL card and fabulous photos this morning! Lisa is a fabulous one to get inspiration from--her cards are breathtaking and holding one of her cards in my hands makes me feel like the luckiest girl on earth! You have really captured her style here, but with your own personal touches that I adore! That pink is like rich creamy icing on a cake!All those butterflies and cherry blossoms just melt my heart and your addition of laces and shabby whites are so sweet! What a wonderful card--it's leaving me speechless!

    Always adore your photography and especially seeing the chickadees eating from your hand! It makes me sad you don't get out to the Shire often, but it seems you're not missing out on the wildlife. Betty Boop makes me grin from ear to ear! Thank you for making my day! Biggest hugs to you!
