Crazy for Quails

Happy together quails

SDC12886-1 One of the unexpected pleasures of moving to Tucson was becoming "mom" to my daily quail visitors (the seed block is the real enticement).  They are the perfect inspiration for this bright and bold quail card, created with the Stampin' Up! Happy Together stamp set.  The card was originally my submission to the Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen Gallery.

    Perfect bow, too!

  11. Being a birder myself, it was always a treat to visit my in-laws while they were snowbirding in AZ to see their quail zipping along in a line. Love your pic of your own quail family and the card to go with!

  12. Cuute! That is one of the sets I have been wanting to get as well. My sister and nieces have been saving baby quails from their drainage that is near their house for years. I want to scrapbook some of those cute photos. 🙂

  13. Mary, Cute card. I truly miss the Quails of Arizona. Watching Momma, Daddy and babies come and go from our yard, with feet flying a hundred miles an hour, is something I miss. Such a treat to watch them. The stamp set is one I must get.

  14. ‘Hello world here’s a song that we’re singin’ c’mon get happy….’ 🙂 and this cute card is enough to make me happy 🙂

  15. Mary, you truly bring the best out of every stamp set you use!

  18. Adorable card! Very cute and classy! Love the colors!

  19. This is adorable Mary, love this color combo and what a fancy ribbon bow.

  21. I just ordered this set…so cute. Like others, I always think of the Partridge Family when I see it. Mary, this card is adorable! I love your colors and layout.

  22. A very cute card, indeed!

  23. Oh my Goodness this is a cute card. Not to date myself too much, but I immediately thought of the opening credits of “The Partridge Family”!
