March Cards

March may have been a busy stressful month, but I seem to have ended up with quite a lot of cards I really like, thanks to the March VSN challenge on Splitcoast, and a wonderful rain-themed Inspiration challenge.











I really enjoyed making the shadow box - Happy Birthday, Lorraine.


And just for fun!! It's such a shame I only have one young nephew - the others are teens now, and much harder to make cards for.

Spring Birds

It's been mostly grey here, and we've had a lot of rain so the back windows need cleaning again.
But such as they are, we've been having some extra visitors now that spring is here.

A long-tailed tit perched in the hedge.
Chaffinch...
Redpoll
Siskin












We've also had a sparrowhawk. Lovely to see,  but a bit distressing  when he snacked on one of the robins.
We still have two who seem to be a pair, I'm happy to say.

Love Is In The Air

"Love is in the air everywhere I look around
Love is in the air every sight and every sound...." 


Well - you'd think there should be sound, with those open beaks. But I haven't been able to hear it over the gulls, and the rush hour traffic. I think you can hear the grey wagtails, though.

February Favourites

Too busy!!

Here are my favourite cards from February.
The anniversary one was for my parents-in-laws' 60th wedding annviversary, and the wedding one was for one of C's work colleagues, made when he didn't like the only two I had on hand to offer him. But I think Linus is my favourite one - I'm sad that Stampabilities will no longer be producing Peanuts stamps any more.









I didn't bother updating my blog header in February, there weren't many photos from last February to choose from. If it comes to it, there weren't that many from last March either. Some siskins and long-tailed tits, but taken through the window so a bit grainy. I've chosen a hen blackbird, instead.
