ScrapAndMe - Garden Wreath

Hello Everyone!

I am super excited today to share my second project as a design team member for ScrapAndMe. I have used the gorgeous ScrapAndMe paper collection "Romantic Garden 2" to create this card for any occasion. The flower patterns are just so beautiful, I love them all!

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far, half gone already!! Just a few pics today, haven't had much time outside since wee Bumper arrived 3 weeks ago, God bless him!! This photo is of Bumper on his 2 week birthday, he's growing so fast!!

So this is the lovely Mary with a beak full of grass for her nest. Her and hubby, Mike, took four attempts before successfully building a nest in the rafters of my garden patio. I am so glad they were successful, for they are the parents of my wee baby Bumper... can you see the resemblance! lol

Flashback to last spring when Big Kate was little!!

"So I've thought it through and I've decided to trust you.
I'm going to approach you for a peanut now, please don't make any sudden movements." 
~Suzy Q~

"OK, someone's been in my stash and you're standing awfully close! Was it you human!!"
~a trail friend~

"Pardon me, did y'all see the peanut lady run by here? Could swear I smelled lunch!"
~a trail friend~

A different type of macro today, a wasp. This little guy had fallen into my birdbath, so I fished him out and watched him for quite some time as he worked frantically to dry off his wings. I finally decided to go get the camera, glad I was able to get a shot while he still had a few water drops on him.

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.

  11. A stunner Pamellia, the papers are gorgeous, beautifully designed and embellished.
    Wonderful photos, love baby Bumper,Kate x x

  12. Beautiful card, Pamellia. Love the touch of purple and layers of lace. Bumper is looking good. How long before he can be released? Wonderful photos!

    1. Thanks Patty. Without his Mommy to teach him everything he needs to know, development is slower in captivity than in the wild. I am currently weaning him off of his formula and trying to get him onto solid food. Once he masters that and no longer relies on me for feeding, then I will move him to a flight cage where he will learn how to fly and get used to the elements of the outdoors. In another month or so, he will hopefully be ready to tackle to world. Fingers crossed for the little guy.

  13. OH! another fabulous and wonderfully Stunningly beautiful card, I love how you put everything together Pamellia.
    Your macro bee seems to be looking at you and maybe thanking you for the help? Fabby photos.

  14. Gorgeous card as always, wonderful photos and the macro of the wasp is fabulous.
    Have a great weekend.

  16. Hi Pamellia,
    such very wonderful papers used on the very excellent creation.
    Love all the wonderful layers, and the colours are unusual for you.
    Every time I look at this stunning creation I see something new that I have not seen before.
    Beautiful array of lovely photos of your wildlife that you love to capture.
    Hope Bumper continues to make good progress, and can learn what he needs to do to be let free and fend for himself.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  18. Wow what an incredible floral creation you have there Pamellia!!
    Bumper is certainly thriving with you as a foster parent - just hope his parents don't do a 'cuckoo' and expect you to do that for all their chicks!!
    Love your trail shots, and the wasp photo is stunning... don't know that I would rescue a wasp...

  19. Absolutely stunning card Pamellia!! Those papers are so beautiful and I adore the gorgeous layers and lovely laces! I so love all the details!!
    Your trail friends are so sweet and my goodness hasn't Bumper grown!! He is adorable and I am so pleased he is doing so well. Not sure that I would rescue a wasp but that photo is certainly stunning!!!
    Our winter weather is not very nice at the moment. Had some bery strong winds and rain today and more to come tomorrow. Just hope it won't be too bad. Have a wonderful day my friend!! hugs xx

  20. Fabulous card, so stunningly girlie. All of those beautiful layers, gorgeous lace and wonderful flowers.

    My how Bumper is growing, he will be trying to fly soon.

  21. These papers are so gorgeous! I love purple and lavender, and how clever of you to spot the wreath and make it the focal point of your design. A lovely card! Congrats on your new Design Team position--they are blessed to have you to showcase their papers! Love all the photos, especially baby bird! I forgot to mention, we also had a nest of Cardinal eggs right off our porch at Capon. They hatched on day two, and we got to see the 3 babies develop so quickly, by the end of our stay. We had some tremendous storms, and it's amazing to see those babies hunker down and live so gracefully through them. Hugs!
