A Birdie Told Me

You mean everything to me.
 This week I made time to work in my craft room and made this bird card (1 of 5) for a swap.  We were to make our cards out of a color that we have difficulty with or have an abundance of that cardstock.  Well I have lots of my favorite 2 colors: black and turquoise.  
In return, I will receive 5 different cards from other participating swap partners.

The New Year started out so well!  I have kept myself very busy and productive.

So far this year I played Bingo at Church for the very first time and had a great time.  I'm sure I had Bingo, but being a first timer I probably didn't know I did.  I had a great time though!

Mom and I went to a local casino with our Church group.  It was my mom's first time ever at a casino.  As beautiful as this casino was, I'm still not a fan of casinos.  Too much cigarette smoke and came home with a horrible migraine.

In our Women's Guild Sewing Group we started working on lap quilts to be donated to our veterans.  I finished making one this past Wednesday...and a couple more to go!

This Saturday I'm hosting Bunco...we're a group of 12 fun and raucous Ladies!!!
So today I will spend most of my day getting our home ready and preparing a huge pan of Lasagna for tomorrow's fun evening!

And today I meet my BFF for lunch!  She's still working and we haven't had a chance to see each other since before Christmas!  We have lots of catching up to do!!!


  1. What beautiful cards you have created, Oliva! Love the colour and the birdie is so sweet. My goodness you seem to have gotten off to a flying start in the new year. All those activities do sound like a lot of fun!

  2. Those colors are great together! Love the bird on them. They are sweet for a swap. Have a fun weekend.
    I'll try to stay warm this weekend! BRRR

  3. Love your challenge card, especially the newsprint! What a good idea! You will have to tell us where the casino is when we go to AZ. I also get a headache from the smoke. Some have smoke free areas. Sounds like a wonderful time for you!

  4. Your cards are so pretty, great challenge to work with colors you don't normally use. That is great you all are making quilts for the veterans, I am sure they feel very blessed that you all are thinking of them that way!
