Celebrating another holiday on our Sunday challenge. Hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day Weekend!! Our weekend was a wedding on Saturday with my daughter playing the flute as the bride and party come down the isle. The music was so beautiful. I listened to her practice all week and it was a beautiful song. She will also be playing at a cemetery with her band on Monday morning. Remembering all the Veteran's and loved one's that passed. This is a new thing that school's are doing for Memorial Day. Well, I hope that every one of you have had a great weekend and a wonderful Monday!!

As you can see from above, Fred, She Said Designs is our sponsor this week. I used an image from her set called Blue Jay and Raspberries. Who doesn't like raspberries. There were raspberry bushes on a country road where I grew up. I would walk up there all the time to pick the berries. Great memories. Blue jays are beautiful birds but I don't see them that much where I live. Enough of my rambling again. Here is the prize that Fred, She Said Designs is giving our lucky winner this challenge for birds.

Here is the card of my Blue Jay and Raspberries. Hope you enjoy it.

I wanted the raspberries to look like they were growing up a lattice. The background paper is light but it has vines that go up and down. After I put the berries and blue jay on the card, I was stumped with what to do with the rest. My image that I had in my mind just vanished. I went through many poems to find this one that just stood out at me. So I loved the way it all turned out. Here are the products that I used to make this card.

Cardstock - Close To My Heart
Paper - DCWV, The Paper Studio
Flowers - From My Stash
Saying - Colorbok
Punch - EK Tools Large Edger Punch (Lattice Chain)
Colored Pencils
Colored Markers

Thanks for joining me for another challenge that were having at The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. If you would like any information about the challenge you can find it there. There are so many birds out there. Which one will your choose? Have a Great Sunday and the rest of the week. See you next Sunday.
