I was just going to make a nice page about a bird but then I thought about this song I like and it seemed to go with it, hence the lyrics.

Tag has info about cardinals

Notebook papers has the first verse and chorus of "Winter's Come and Gone" by Gillian Welch:

Oh, little red bird, come to my windowsill
Been so lonesome, shakin that morning chill
Oh, little red bird, open your mouth and say
Been so lonesome, just about gone away

So long, now I've been out, in the rain and snow
But winter's come and gone, a little bird told me so.

    This is a beautiful LO, a wonderful tribute to a beautiful bird.
    The picture is lovely, the colors are great.
    I really like how you complimented the photo with the red and black.
    It just looks terrific,

    Wow what a great picture.. I love seeing cardinals and bluejays Im never quick enough to get a picture tho.. lol.. I love the colors and the song lyris are a great touch. You did a great job using the new kit!
    That was fast! What a great photo of a cardinal. And using lyrics is a great touch, they are perfect for this page.
    Wow what an eye catching layout. This is really nice.
    Great use of the new club. You did an awesome job getting this picture. I have two cardinals that frequent my yard but I can never get a picture of them. I'm loving seeing what everyone is doing with Valerie's work of art.
    Awesome photo and lo. I really love it all.
    This is really pretty! I love how you used the bird transparency, it makes a very bold statement! Great job!
    Your page is beautiful. The deep red papers really show off your cardinal. Great Layout.

    Beautiful job! I love the red background with the bird silhouette, and the scroll-y frame. That font is gorgeous, and the song is just perfect for this layout. Excellent job on this layout!
    This is beautiful, Leigh Ann! I love nature photos and your cardinal photo is so appealing. The red background and black accents are wonderful compliments to the photo. I love the song lyrics and the handwriting font you chose - very appropriate for this layout.
