Feed the birds....

Soooo....are you singing Mary Poppins yet? I am! LOL  "Feed the birds...lalalalalala" You know the part towards the end (where the movie gets boring, sorry)!!  I LOVE Mary Poppins, but boy the last part is a bit exhausting. Same goes for the running away part of the Sound of Music. I get a little bored....but it's my FAVORITE movie!!!!!!  I can recite pretty much every line! 

I like a variety of movies. My top 10 movies would have to be:

1. Sound of Music
2. Grease
3. Gladiator
4. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (yea I know it's not a "classic...but love it)
5. Godfather
6. Mary Poppins
7. Toy Story
8. Shindlers List
9. Goodfellas
10. Kill Bill

Honorable mentions would be - Sixth Sense, E.T, The Dark Night, X-Men Series, Twilight (crappy movies...but come on!) and the BEST christmas movie - ELF! hehe

So on to the reason we are all here.....I bought this adorable image from Mo Manning. Is she not adorable. When I see it, it reminds me of that song "Feed the birds" don't ask me why...but it just does!!! LOL Now, you are probably thinking I am crazy...but I can't help it...it's what I think! LOL




Have you noticed I have been keeping my cards simple?  I have noticed that. I don't think that is a bad thing AT ALL...I actually like them. The coloring pops....and it doesn't look cluttered to me...I'm ok with it! Has your style or look changed over the years? I know my does!!


See this pretty little cookie??  It's a French Macaron. I made these the other night and they were DELICIOUS!  Omg...soooo yummy I can hardly explain it. I can't wait to make more with various flavors. You didn't know that I was such a baker too, huh!!  Well I am...I love to cook and bake!

Tracy, stunningly beautiful card. I love this colour combo. Am liking combos that include orange more and more. Sweet Mo's image gorgeously coloured.
OMG, your macaroon looks soooo... professionally made!!! I was in France last summer and had my first taste of those macaroons. What bliss! Oh, you just have to share the recipe and how you made them so perfect!
Hugs,

Hi Tracy, I LOVE your card, and you know what, when I see this image I always think of the Girl with the Matchsticks, it is this sad fairytale about a poor little girl at Christmas selling matchsticks in the streets who finaly freezes to death. I know it's so sad, really makes me cry. Hugs, Frea

Naomi said...

Not only a gorgeous card but, omg, I LOVE macarons! Yum, yum, YUM!!!
Can't wait to work with you either...we were ALMOST on two teams together...hehehe....
I don't think you remember but, we had a little email convo earlier this year about Copics...I just started using them in May and you gave me some advice. :)

Happy Holiday Hugs,
Naomi

Beautiful card, Tracy! I'm not sure which looks yummier... the card or the cookie! LOL As for your change in style, I like it too but I like the other way too. I like to change it up from time to time. It keeps me from becoming bored with what I'm doing and I love what I'm doing so that would not be a good thing at all.

Hugs,
Anniebee
