I Love Peacocks

I grew up in the city limits, yet that did not deter my father from bringing home 2 peacocks one day.  Yup, we had two beautiful peacocks in our backyard. OMG...such beautiful feathers but their hollering did not go over well with the neighbors.  I was the most popular kid on the block and at school, for everyone wanted to barter to get a peacock feather...even the teachers.  Upon arriving home from school one day, the peacocks were gone.  They were gone as quick as they had arrived.  But, those were 2 really cool months.  My father was forever bringing home things like that.

Anyhooooo....I made a peacock card in their memory...haha  The Peacock Set from Doodle Pantry is a new November release....check out the other images and coordinating papers and join us for the DP#40 Challenge.

  3. Wonderful die cut and the colors in the peacock image are glorious. I love peacocks, too, but as a kid I remember living next door to a pair of them and the screeching was horrendous! lol I admit I was glad when they moved away.
