DJKASEing Marybeth

Oh, hi!

I'll bet you never thought these ol' pins could waddle that fast did you? I wasn't planning this post, at least not today, but about an hour ago I came across my note with a challenge I HAD to play in and the time is almost up.

It was very important from me to join in the Tag You're It challenge so I could DJKASE one of my favorite card artists. She is Marybeth Lopez and her delightful blog is Marybeth's Time for Paper. If you aren't familiar with Marybeth, you are in for a treat! She has never made a card or a tag that I haven't fallen in love with!

Marybeth is the featured designer at TYI, and here then, is my attempt to emu late a Marybeth Masterpiece:
I'm sorry the photo does not do this pretty tag justice. Here is the challenge prompt and Marybeth's tag:
Aren't they stunning? I'm especially biased about the card you see because I was privileged to receive that card from Marybeth for my birthday last July. It is even more gorgeous in real life! Now it is my turn to honor Marybeth by making a "Marybeth" DJKASE for this challenge.

My colors are different because I like to be a bit different with a DJKASE, so I used the color choices from the MFT Card Challenges: Color Challenge, which is also about to close!
The papers used in my tag are PTI kraft, vintage cream, and new leaf, as well as Bazzill lavender. The tag die is the MFT Die-Namics "Vertical Frame." The roses are from the PTI "Rosie Posie" dies, embossed in purple (the shine doesn't show in the photo). The leaves are from a Sissix die. The sediment is NBUS from the MFT set "Pretty Poppies" heat-embossed in SU dark brown and the dewdrops are from Hero Arts.

~~~

Because I used several snippets, including a snippet of ribbon, I am taking my tag over to the Playground at Pixie's Snippets Playground to show my mates.

And the current challenge at The Card Concept is "Thinking of You" with a photo of roses! I hope a tag is okay? That question has not been asked in the FAQs, quite possibly because the natural response would be, "It is called the "card" concept, dearie! Off you go!"

Still, I'm going to be a rebel and see what happens. It never hurts to try.

And, lastly, I am entering a new-to-me challenge called Retro Rubber where the premise is to encourage us to use our older stamps that still need some love! (Actually, I have plenty of NBUS stamps that are over a year old and never been loved at all, she says, ashamed.) For this challenge, Retro Rubber wants us to make a tag or a card with a tag. My "Rosie Posie" and leaves are over a year old.

If any of these challenges are new to you, please check them out and play along to show your appreciation for the hard work involved in maintaining a challenge!

The challenge links will provide you with details on rules, sponsors, and prizes.

Marybeth, thank you for your friendship and encouragement and for using my beautiful birthday card as your "Tag You're It" feature photo!! It is a pleasure and an honor to support you in TYI and add you to my DJKASE tab of card artists!

In Other News

I have one other thing to share with Marybeth and with all of you. You all know how much I love hummingbirds and how we had our resident hummer Hitler for years and how he died and another male attached to our feeder. Well, we've had some interesting developments the last few months which have led to this exciting event:
All these years and we've never spied a nest before. Not only that, but look where it is:
 
I put a circle (upper left) where the nest is in the small tree behind. It is right outside my Playhouse window! It's up too high for me to see inside, but I'm okay with seeing it all!

After I posted this, I realized that in the picture above I captured the little mama at the feeder, so I made another copy with an additional circle on the right (below) where she is barely visible. You can see she has a straight shot to her source of nutrition.

Aren't they smart to nest in the Oleander tree? Her back and wing look just like a leaf. Can you see her? She is fiddling with the nest; the eggs haven't hatched yet. (Mister got up on a ladder and peeked inside. We plan to have him do it again and snap a photo.)

The reason I wanted to share especially for this post is because Marybeth also loves hummers and I've been jealous of the fact that for years she has enjoyed having hummingbird nests in a miniature tree in a pot right next to the diving board of their pool! The wee birds are unperturbed by all the activity and the adults and kids using the pool can look right down in the nest! So, look, Marybeth, we have a nest, too!

I'll keep you posted and share more photos. I have my ginfers crossed that the babies make it!

~~~

Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy.  LITS!* 

As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to leave a comment and/or join as a follower! Please let me know you came by, so I can be sure and return the flavor!

Such a cheerful rebellious tag! That Kraft paired with that bright purple looks lovely! And lucky you to have a hummingbird so close to your crafty space! I'm sure she'll keep you inspired!

scrappymo! said...

That is one great Cased tag!

Love the colours with the kraft!

You are so lucky to have the hummingbird nest. I have never seen one! The grandkids got a feeder this year so hopefully I will see some of the birds this summer.

Greta said...

Oh my goodness--a hummer nest?!! I'd be in heaven! Can't wait to see more pictures, Darnell! Your tag is stunning-a wonderful case of a Marybeth masterpiece!

Jane Willis said...

Oh, humming birds and oleander, you make me so jealous! I suppose you'd be just as jealous of the daffodils and crocuses I can see right now. I love your tag, and thanks (I think) for letting me know about another great challenge, and another couple of blogs to follow. If my Bloglovin feed goes into meltdown, I'll know who to blame!

Your tag looks wonderful, Darnell, and good for you for going for it with the challenges. How lucky for you to have found the nest and right in your backyard. I hope everything goes well. Your yard looks like an oasis, so no wonder they picked it! :)

Fabulous tag! Love the color combo!

Julia Aston said...

Love the purple on your lovely tag Darnell - it really POPS! and what lovely tribute to Marybeth - I just love her work as well!! Thanks SO much for sharing your pics of your hummingbird - how totally awesome that they have a nest right by your stamping cottage!! my cousins have hummingbirds come to their summer cottage in NH - but I have not been able to find a good spot for a hummingbird feeder around my yard and have never seen one in my yard despite planting red plant supposed to attract them - maybe some day!

Di said...

Wonderful tag Darnell, and even more wonderful to have nesting hummers! How lovely.

Hugs

Di xx

What a gorgeous tag, Darnell! I love the bright, bold purple against the white and kraft, and your leaves dangling over the edge. Enjoy your hummers, wish I had some too! I've only ever once seen one in my garden.

Vicki Dutcher said...

Lovely CASED tag -- looks great in the color combo. Have fun with the H birds -- those babies are the cutest [when they arrive] :)

Leslee said...

Very pretty tag! I love the green and purple together! Not a purple fan here! Love that you have a hummingbird nesting in your back yard! How cool!! My sister in law catches them and bands them and measures them in BC.

KT Fit Kitty said...

I love MaryBeth's cards and tags too! Your tag is beautiful! I enjoyed seeing your hummingbird photos - how cool that you have a nest right outside your playhouse! We put a feeder out here at the new house last summer and got to see them a lot - so fun!

Jenelle Triggs said...

I love your tag, Darnell! The colors and all your little snippets are beautiful! How fun is it for you to have a hummingbird nest right outside your playhouse! We have a feeder but we haven't put it up at our new house yet.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Your card is gorgeous and made me say "SQUEEE!" but all that pales in comparison to the hummer! And the hummer nest! Woo hoo!!!

Marybeth said...

Oh my gosh Darnell, thank you for so many kind words.
Love your take on the card I made for you and the color you used is amazing!
I am so happy you have a nest!!!!!! Yay! Funny thing is I took the camera out Monday and tried to find a new nest in the lime tree! We can’t go near the tree without being sh-ooshed way by the parents.
I know you will enjoy every single day and be sad when the little ones leave.
Thanks you aging, and for playing along!

conil said...

Your tag is stunning. Love the colors you used, it's gorgeous. Lucky you to have received the inspiration card. We have hummers that nest in our almond tree...have never had eggs, though. Clearly, you're doing something right.

Cornelia (fun stamping) said...

Gorgeous tag - gorgeous pics - I love Oleander trees - too cold for them in NJ....there is still snow everywhere... You should link up your little beauty at Retro Rubber - they could use a few more entries... http://www.retrorubberchallengeblog.com/my-blog/2015/03/challenge-9-tag-youre-it.html

Helen F. said...

Oh my, Darnell! How did you ever spot that sweet hummingbird nest?
I am host to a Cardinal family (for the last few years) in my Oleander trees in back of my pool screen ~would love to spy a hummingbird out there 8-)

Your tag is just stunning and a beautiful CASE of Marybeth's awesome art!

Jeanne J said...

That hummingbird nest just stole the show. I'm a birder and I'd just love to see this in person. Thanks for the beautiful close up shots! And yes... your tag.. LOL! Gosh you know I love purple so this is heavenly to me!

Happy Wednesday to you!! XOXO-Shari

Birgit said...

This tag is so smart looking! I see the gloss of the purple and love it! It really comes nicely off from the kraft colour. I love Hummingbirds to and that is so neat that one is nesting right there. Can't wait to see the tiny eggs. I have to know why you called the last one hummer hitler:)

You've done Marybeth proud, dear friend. Your CASE is absolutely beautiful. Seriously. It's vibrant and bright, and sooo lovely. I'm sure she's tickled purple! LOVE it! And I can't wait to hear more about the hummers as they nest and raise young 'uns. Talk to you tomorrow. Bev

My Card Attic: Hazel said...

GORGEOUS Darnell! I love the striking colour and those roses are to die for! Hazel xx

Bonnie said...

A wonderful CASE of Marybeth's tag! She is a treasure! Hope your hummer's babies survive. How exciting! I saw a video on Facebook a week or so ago of a guy holding a lid with "nectar" in his lap and the hummer came right up and ate (drank?) out of it. It was the most amazing video and I was mesmerized! They are so pretty!

Carol L said...

What a GORGEOUS tag! Oh my gosh, those purple flowers are amazing! Purple rocks!! Great hummer pics too! What a view you have :)

Cheryl W. said...

Your tag is so beautiful, Darnell! Also, thank you for sharing pics of your resident hummingbirds with all of us. How exciting that you will soon have baby hummers chirping for their noonday meal from mama hummer. Hope you'll continue to share their story.

Marisa said...

Gorgeous tag - love the flowers and way to make purple shine :) ADORE the photo of the hummer in the next - meeep!! We have hummers here and our neighbours actually have a nest in a box frame in their house but I have never seen one. Love it!! Hope you get some photos of the babies!!!

Hummingbirds...love your news on this new family and all of the happies they will bring to your little corner! I am looking forward to future updates and pics on these little hummers. I usually spot one on St. Patrick's Day here, but it has been a chilly winter and everything seems a couple of weeks behind normal scheduling...
Have a great day friend!
Hugs and smiles...

Geri said...

Awesome tag - the purple flowers are gorgeous! Love how the sprig of leaves overhangs the tag! And no worries - tags are A-OK at CCC!

FABULOUS pics! Can hardly wait for updates! BTW - did you ever name the new fella? If you told us, then I've forgotten so please refresh my lapsing memory!

Cat Craig said...

Love that kraft tag, I usually reserve kraft for man cards, but wow, this looks fabulous! Thanks for showing a girly kraft hon!

Donna said...

Your tag is absolutely gorgeous and so glad you shared about the hummingbirds!

Scrapbook Lynne said...

Oh Darnell - FANTASTIC tag but even more FANTASTIC about the hummingbird nest!!! ( I GET it! Grin) Ihave never experienced a nesting humming bird, but one of my "highlight" memories is coming upon a male hummingbird doing his mating dance for a female, He does multiple figure "8"'s while she remains perfectly still (hovering in the air) watching him.... It took a second for me to realize what I had stumbled onto, and good thing it was ONLY a second as, with all things Hummingbird, it did not last very long! Grin Thanks for making my day!!

Viv said...

Hi Dee, loving your pretty tag and how special to have an ickle birdie nesting so near to your playhouse!Can't wait for more updates now ;) hugs Vee xx

Carole said...

Your tag is vibrant and vivacious...totally royal. Gorgeous!
The hummers found a good home where they are appreciated and admired.

Shannon McComb said...

Thank your your beyond sweet comments on my blog!:)

Craftychris said...

Your tag is so vibrant you rebel you! And how cool to have a hummingbird nest outside the playhouse - that is awesome! xxx

Katy McGloin said...

A lovely tag but what I truly enjoyed was your hummingbird update! I love them also and have never found a nest in my yard but have known there was one close by. They are so much fun to watch especially in late summer when the fledlings are busy spreading their wings. I do hope you will come back often to play along with RRBC. I certainly enjoyed your visit!!

Neva Cole said...

Amazing card with a great story to match! Hummingbirds are so delicate, thank you for sharing their story with us as well. Glad you stopped by to share your creation with us at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog, please come again! Plus is is a great place to use your NBUS stamps!

Robyn Oliver said...

Hi Darnell, first that's a really pretty tag AND I just loved reading about your humming birds, that's so special to have them nest outside your craft bungalow. So interesting to watch and for them to have eggs they must be happy. My friend had them build a nest on the end of an old rope hanging on their back verandah - a treat to watch. Have a super day and enjoy your birds Cheer Robyn

Kim Heggins said...

Love your tag...just love it! So pretty and I love your sweet photos too, so beautiful. Enjoy the warm weather and see you soon.

Diane said...

How fun Darnell to be able to watch the little hummingbird. It will be wonderful when the babies hatch. It is a little to early here in the Pacific Northwest for birds to be laying eggs.

Your tag design is fabulous.

Hugs Diane

Sharron said...

Love this gorgeous tag! It's such a wonderful interpretation of Marybeth's design. Oh, and finding your hummingbird nest is so exciting! You're going to have such fun watching the little family. Hope we will see more pictures!!
