Blue Birds

 Spring is in my mind and flew gracefully onto my paper.
Shades of robins egg blue, coppery brown and white are put together in a simple style. Some of the tags have millinery flowers, some aren't quite yet in bloom. What do you do with these tags? Use tags in place of a card. Tie a tag on a gift. Hang on an Easter tree. Give several as a gift, or just one tied to a little treat.
Don't forget to write a sweet message on the back.
Spring you are a darling. Please come soon.
Spring blessings to you,

Tamerie Shriver said...

It all looks beautiful! I love the blue. As for the snow, well, looking out my window as I type this note, I see my tangerine tree. Not a snow flake in sight. I lived in Chicago for ten years, so I do know about the 'joys' of snow. All I can say is better you than me! It has to melt soon. Hang in there!

Those colors in the first picture are what we're getting ready to paint our bedroom!

Your tags are beautiful! I am so glad you got to leave on your trip, to get away for a bit, but it must be hard to come back and STILL be having this much snow.

Read lots of gardening books and mags, that always can help!

Happy Pink Saturday!
