Card Patterns Sketch 84 - Miss you, bird

I haven't done one of the sketches at the Card Patterns blog in a long time so when I saw this layout, I "flew" at the chance to use it.  Don't you just love birds?  I know I do!  Here are my favorite birds: birds flying by outside the window, birds at the birdfeeder, birds in trees, birds in cages, paper birds, woodcut birds, and plastic birds.  I enjoy imitation birds at all times but I only enjoy live birds when I am at a safe distance.
Have you ever looked closely in their "beady eyes", gazed upon their dangerous talons or contemplated what their beaks could do to you?  Don't be fooled by those talking birds - they just talk to get you close enough to possibly snap off your finger with their bite strength of 500 to 700 pounds per square inch.  In fact, my younger boy cried when he was 3 because a Robin kept staring at him and cocking his head like he was sizing my son up as a snack!  What kind of responsible person would I be if I didn't warn you of the dangers you face each time you go outside?!  Surely, there are some of you that feel like I do.

You are one crazy, funny chick! :)
I have to admit- I LOVE listening to birds & all kinds of bird decor- but keep the live birds outside!!
I do love this card- the wood bird adds such an unexpected element! :)

I am a bird fanatic! They are one of my favorite images to work with when I'm making something, but I run in fear from live ones! Roosters especially! I have to go find some of that paper now. Love the card!
