Busy Birds

Yesterday was the first day of Spring.  Rita's always gives out free water ice on the first day of Spring.  It certainly wasn't a water ice kind of day in PA.  We had more snow on the ground again this morning.  It's gone now, but it certainly wasn't necessary.
I keep telling myself it is time to start my spring cleaning instead of all this card making.  Time to get busy and clean our 'nests' while the birds are busy making new nests.   It won't be long before you hear the incessant cheeping of the baby birds wanting to be fed. Every time I see those pesty baby robins following their mother around wanting to be fed, I am glad I'm not a bird!

Oh- there goes the timer.  I set it so I wouldn't get so carried away with my blog that I forgot to get the meatloaf made for dinner.  Be back shortly.

I'm back.  Well anyway, all that spring stuff was leading up to this card.

I followed the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches # 190
but moved things to the right so you could see the bird on the DP bringing a worm to her baby birds.
I'll also be entering this card in the following:
