Little Rustic Blue Jay

Well, it certainly has been a hot, humid summer over most of the US.  I can't say this is weather I enjoy......truth is ~ I hate it!  I want to be outside riding horses, but it's just to dang uncomfortable.  However, the wildlife seems to enjoy it.  There are more birds, rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, frogs, etc than I've ever seen out here!  

I guess watching all the wildlife, along with a couple of challenge blogs, inspired this Blue Jay card I made for my dad.  Wildlife is fun to use since the background papers really set the tone for the project.  I find it's easy to "pretty them up" for ladies or choose a more rugged look for the guys.  Of course, we can always choose a neutral look for family occasions.
