The springtime greenery.



If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. This is my motto for today. Because yesterday, in my great excitement to start yardwork, I chopped the hell out of the honeysuckle tree out front. Which was fine, until we loaded up 2 cars full of branches and discovered that the brush dump site was closed until Wednesday.

So I've been driving around with a car-load of freshly budded, GREEN tree branches. The people I passed on the highway today must have thought I was a little "bonzai", driving to work all dressed up with branches sticking out of the doors of my car and my windows rolled down so I don't absorb the fresh "spring" smell of rotting leaves.

Anyway, the card above was a quickie one tonite; I love this sweet bird image! Some day I'm going to attempt to try collage like Vicki Chrisman does. Check out the eye candy on her blog! Amazing! The bird stamp is from Clearartstamps - "Birdnotes", and the fab harlequin paper is from the Crafty Secret's "Radiant" paper pad. The paper is double-sided, so on the opposite side of the harlequin is the black polka dots.
