Creative Souls ATC swap + bit of random

This month's Art Trading Card prompt over at CreativeSouls.com was birds +/or flowers. I'll be receiving this vibrant cardinal from Beverly Sams of the Dreams Of Pure Love blog :

B. Sams bird ATC for swap

I know my kiddo is going to snag this as soon as it arrives. He loves watching the cardinals and jays at the feeder outside his window. I'll also have to show him the photos Bevie recently took of the feathered friends in her backyard - you can see them by clicking here.

By the way, did you participate in the annual BackYard Bird Count? It is great fun for bird lovers and little kids! If you have a bird fan in your house, visit their site to download free posters, see what species folks are sharing sightings of and even enter a photo contest.

I went with flowers for my ATC to share - specifically a lady slipper with butterflies. (Sorry about the weird white bits - my scanner is misbehaving today so this is just a quicky cell-phone snap)

There is still time to the random drawing that I am hosting for Novica.com! You have until 1 a.m. (EST) on 2/21 to leave a comment on my blog & be entered. You can get two additional entries by following the instructions in the original post. Good Luck! 


  1. I need to check out that Backyard Bird Count - I bet Princess Nagger would enjoy participating, she loves birds. And she'd be like your kiddo - if we got a beautiful cardinal painting like that, she'd absolutely snag it. ;)
