Queen Birdy and Poetry




Happy Sunday! Hope your weekend is going well!

A co-worker requested a birthday card with birds, so I whipped this one up Friday night. 
I used the fabulous sketch from the Cardabilities #120 challenge. I used a hodgepode of supplies, always seeming to go for "blue" when I want a sweet card. I fixed the inside very prettily too, but forgot to take a picture, darn! lol!

On a non-stamping note, dh and I went to see Billy Collins and Aimee Mann last night for a "rare evening of poetry, acoustic music, and conversation about their art forms and creative process." It was really amazing! Aimee's music is very moving, like poetry. You might know some from the movie Magnolia. 

What about you? Are you a poetry person? I remember it being tough in school and saying things like, "Why can't they just say what they mean?" All that "figuring it out" was tricky! In contrast, my husband was an English major and poetry enthusiast, and I fell for it pretty hard when he used it on me during our "courting" days! lol! 


Anyway, Billy Collins is so wonderful with poetry...it's beautiful, yet comprehensible, surprising and funny, yet touching. That's my layperson description anyway. Here's a clip of him reading The Lanyard. Hope you enjoy!



Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
