Hearty Bird FREEBIE and a CASology Challenge Card

And a 365 Photo of the Day too.


“On the Radio, yea-ah, On the RADIO”

I imagine in the day of this vintage radio it was a very big thing to listen.  When I fire this beautiful thing up I am in awe it still works and receives a station or two.  The writer inside me dying to get out makes up all sorts of bits of an audible crazy quilt of themes where this radio sits and feeds the ears of people in a bygone era in all manner of home situations. 

I think about a farming family on the prairies and the wife kneading bread and looking out the frosty panes of windows in the long winter when the wind blows and keens. I think about the radio as bringing someone inside to visit while she goes about providing food and comfort to her family.  I also imagine the farm Mr looking forward to getting all the chores done on an early Saturday morning and being eager to sit later and listen to news, politics or a sports game.

Oh, how many more scenarios beg to be spoken here, however I’d best stop here as my post may be a tad long.

CASology 133 Challenge Card – “LOVE” theme. 

I chose to make a card in the suggested theme used by Ardyth which asks us to “Choose only one or two large graphics elements to keep your card clean’ 

Well, I’m counting the bird as one large elements and perhaps the teeny hearts don’t really count at all?  No, you don’t see them there at all do you?  At any rate, I thought I’d place my card under that theme and hopefully this fits in.

  1. Love your large bird here, and especially the heart shaped wing--so suitable for Valentines day. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

  2. This is very clever! Great colour choice and great use of Ardyth's suggestions. Love the subtly embossed background too! Thanks so much for joining us at CASology this week.

  3. I love the old radio sis, technology was build to last back then. Love your adorable little bird.

  4. Sheesh and of course the super cute card, love it.

  5. I love your radio too! Reminds me of the one we had when just a kid! It would shock us when we touched it. Not horribly but enough to make us jump.:) My older brothers had a great idea for a game. They would have us four kids hold hands and the first one in line would touch the radio and the last one in line was the one to receive the shock.:/ That game didn't last very long !! LOL

    Love your card and your adorable love bird!! Cool idea to use a heart for the wing and eye!! Thumbs up!!


  6. Too cute! This is one of my favorite color combinations!!! :) I love the little trio of hearts too!

    Thanks so much for joining us over at CASology!
