Did you notice the little bird in the bottom right corner? My husband's grandfather carved the bird in 1969. His grandfather (Carl) came to the USA from Sweden when he was a young boy. Carl worked as optical toolmaker until he was 77 yrs.old. When he retired he started this "wood carving" hobby. He used a small penknife of Swedish stainless steel to prefect his art. He was accustomed to long days and usually spent 10 hrs. a day carving in his workshop. Many of his carved pieces were painted and some were left to show the natural wood grain. Be on the look out for more carvings in future posts.

This card uses stamps from Rubber Stampede (Solidago Sprig #2875F) and Stampendous (Hummingbird Flight F083). Marvy markers # 36, 80, 96 were used to color the flower and the hummingbird. The ribbon came from my "scrap stash".
The last card uses an Inky Antics stamp (Dragonfly 10118F ) and the same Rubber Stampede Sprig as the card above. Marvy markers #15, 36, 106. Ribbon from JoAnn's.
Back to creating more cards in my Butterfly Garden.
