Debby Hughes - CASE Study



I have never kept my adoration for Debby a secret... heck, given the opportunity to sing her praises another time?  I run to take advantage of the opportunity.  But, I don't know about the rest of you crafty folks... CASEing her at CASE Study #207 is a bit daunting to me =/  Look at all that gorgeousness!



Enter a pair of hummingbirds from Wplus9... my first attempt with this set!  A touch of gold for a sentiment from SSS just for Debby - Ms. Hughes if you're crafty!!

One of our favorite birds - we have at least six buzzing the feeders. 
 
On occasion I can even entice them for a nibble up-close-and-personal =]
A little side-note.. the male ruby-throats get their beautiful little red throats one
miniscule red feather at a time... before that happens, they look as if they have freckles- see!
 
 
I've done my best [with several tries] Debby.  Hope you love it!

First time I've turned Feedly on in days, if not weeks and I'm greeted with this lovely post! First off, fabulous hummingbird pics. You can actually get them to come to you? Wow. Second, your card is seriously awesome! Love the colours you used - and seeing your pictures I can see where you were inspired :D

Oh, my goodness! I don't know what I love more - that gorgeous card, or the fact that you can get so close to hummingbirds! I love this post, Michele! Your card is a really beautiful take on Debby's!

A perfect tribute to Debby's card. You've really captured those hummingbirds perfectly; they look like they could fly right off your card! And you've "trained" them???!!!! I'm in total awe. Very cool. No...very, VERY cool. Have a great Sunday. Bev

I am green with envy. Not only did you do a great CASE of Debby's card, you actually get up close and personal with the hummingbirds you were so beautifully inspired by.

Michelle said...

Michele, this card is amazing! And I love your hummingbird photos! We don't get hummingbirds here in Australia, and I hope one day to see one in real life. :-)

What a fabulous card you have created here! We used to have hummingbirds coming to our feeders...but they stopped. I miss them, but we never did manage to get very close to them.

Always so wonderful to have you stop by, Debby. Yes, we actually do get them to come, even had one fly into the room during a feeding session through an open window =/
Not one has caught my homage to Janet Jackson yet... had you?
