Pion Design - Sweet Memories

Hello Everyone!

I sure do love to mix and match my Pion Design collections, so today I am sharing a Mother's Day card featuring papers from "My Dearest Sofia" and "Where the Roses Grow". Doesn't this beautiful image bring back such wonderful memories!

Still sharing some older photos. This shot is how the lake looked before the first snow fall, but it looks pretty much the same now. The ice has melted and the birds are slowly coming back.

One of my favourite things about where I live are the sounds of the birds on the lake. This time of year the Seagulls congregate on the lake and the sound is most amazing!

A male Sparrow...

A female Downy Woodpecker. Somebody inquired about the size of these birds. Yes, they are very small, almost as small as a Sparrow. Much smaller than their cousins the Hairy Woodpecker.

Petie is doing very well, although I haven't seen much of him since the snow melted. Out and about enjoying the world I guess. lol

To my absolute delight, I saw Princess Tabitha in the park this week. She doesn't look like this anymore, looks like she's had her own run-in with that nasty hawk, but she's alive and I'm so happy!

Delilah doesn't visit very often, but I was tickled on her last visit to see without any new scars or injuries. Stay safe little one!!

That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments.

  9. Such a beautiful card Pamellia, the papers are very pretty and the image is just perfect for Mother's Day. You always make such gorgeous cards and I am always in awe!!

    Love your photos today too, I hope your little friends stay safe and well. We have had quite a bit more snow but fingers crossed we have seen the last of it. We have had seagulls on the millpond next to our street, they usually come in when it is extra cold, I guess the 'fishing' is easier inland! Hugs, Anne xx

  15. This card is just beyond beautiful Pamellia, I just love those trailing bits of lace underneath those pretty roses! You always manage to make everything work so well together! photos old or not, are always a deligt to see and so glad that some of your furry friends have survived! I am always amazed how you can tell them all apart, but I guess they each have their own unique personality....

  16. What a fabulously beautiful card, Pamellia! Love the lace and the flower cluster. I'm so happy to see some of the squirrels are still around. You are lucky to have such a wide variety of birds to see.

  17. Your card is PRECIOUS! I love the charming vintage image surrounded by your lovely layers of delicate papers, laces and ribbons. Your roses and clock are just stunning! Sigh! Your artistic talent is endless and such a blessing for me!

    Loved your photos as always! The mysterious foggy lake shot is my favorite of your landscapes, and your bird and squirrel photos are so fabulous! You've even made a sky rat, uh, I mean seagull, look majestic! Sorry, I love the sound of seagulls, but I don't really care for them...I think I may have shared a story about seagulls stealing a sandwich right out of my hands! The sparrow, even as a very common and somewhat boring in colors looks gorgeous through your camera lens! You are an amazing and patient photographer! Your squirrels always make me smile! Sending hugs!

  18. Stunning card and beautiful flowers added...Your photos are so lovely nice to see the animals and creatures like this.
    I had to re follow your blog for some reason.x

    PS hope you got your kitchen additions LOL.

  21. What a gorgeous Mother's Day card - you have the most amazing lace collection.

  22. How ever do you keep those furry friends named! Some look so much like the others, I can not tell them apart!
    I love the woodpeckers- some of my favorites! The Downy's are so sweet and really aren't as skittish as some of the other birds. And the Hairy's, wow do we have a big one this year! The Robins have been out singing and I saw a couple of birds"trying to make it" the other day! Spring? we can only hope so!
    I just love that card,romantically beautiful! ")
    hoping all is well in your world! xoxo

  23. Beautiful card Pamellia, I love how you've combined the two paper collections

    Wonderful nature shots as always, when your furries don't visit for a while don't worry, they'll just be off having fun somewhere else :)
