The Birds Up In the Treetops

When I was a little girl, we sang a song:
"The birds up in the tree tops sing a song,
The angels chant a chorus all day long.
The flowers in the garden blend their hue,
So why shouldn't I, why shouldn't you
Praise Him too?"
I often think that the birds are praising God with their song. So musical notes just belonged on this card.
The stamp is by Martha Stewart. I made the flowers by stamping a flower from an old Stampin Up set, cutting them out, then forming them.  The centers are a dab of Stickles.



  1. Here in Ontario Canada when you see a robin you know spring has come...does this apply for your card!Lol I really hope so! Your card is like a breath of spring air...very pretty! I love how you have paired it with the note paper which is so fitting! Beautiful reminder that spring will come!
