Peep Gift

A very close friend of mine will be moving soon from just 20 minutes away, to over 16 hours away. It has been a quick development and one that has me just a wee bit emotional. Her husband has been offered a job in a different state and after being without work since January, they have decided to go where the work is. The evening she called to let me know that they were accepting the job, I knew I had to get started on a special project for her.
Both of us LOVE birds, there is nothing more delightful to me than to sit in my living room window bird watching and I know that my pal feels the same. We are both country decorators so I wanted to make something that would go with her decor.
There are 4 of us who are very close and we affectionately refer to our pals as our "peeps". So this project is for her to hang in her new house and when she looks at it, she'll be thinking of her peeps. The project uses the Stampin' Up! set, Season of Friendship and various supplies from Stampin' Up! Most of the papers have been recently discontinued (Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette). Each square is representative of a different season and each season has a single bird represented...each is different, to represent our four peeps. This is one of those projects that popped into my head and then just came together perfectly. I had such fun making it!
