Bald Eaglet hatches

After far too much sad news recently, I'm delighted to share a screen capture of a baby bald eagle.
This was taken from the Decorah Eagle cam this morning.  This is Dad proudly showing off the first hatchling of the year D21.  You can watch the camera on UStream at this LINK.  There is a lot of activity coming with 2 more eggs to hatch and then raising these eaglets until they learn to fly in a few months.

Happy Birthday!

I've made a couple more cards for family March birthdays.  The first one was similar to others I've made.
I use a purple frame for this one.  The ink is Kaleidacolor Royal Satin.  The background was brayered to the inside of embossing folder before running it through the Big Shot.  I then spritzed it with water with Perfect Pearls added.  This gives a nice shimmer in real life.

This card was made for my son who has a birthday on Friday the 13th.  He lives in an area with this kind of hills and trees.  I'm sure there are deer out there also.  Hope he has a great birthday!

I made this card with a variety of stamps and inks.  The cloud is die-cut from watercolor paper, then colored with Distress inks and water.  It is popped on Tombow Power Tabs for a little dimension.
