How are you all? Good I hope

Thank you to everyone who sent me gifts and emails for my birthday and left comments wishing me a lovely day ... I'm so lucky to have such sweet and kind friends
My day was indeed lovely and my home is so full of flowers!
I'll share a little more later in the week but today is challenge day at

City Crafter

Char has set the challenge for us this week which is

Here's my card

The tree is a Memory Box die as are the little birdies

I'm loving the greys around at the moment and used some grey paper 
by DCWV La Creme Matstack  (a find at TK Maxx ) for my background

Those birds in the tree are so cute and I love the sun and clouds behind. You blend blues so well.

The little birdies transport me right to my bedroom because I hear them every morning, chirping away out there. They seem to think it's spring already... I just hope they do not start laying eggs already or they might be in for a grisly surprise when winter finally does kick in. Anyhow!! Did I mention I like your card, too?!
