Watch the Birdy

 We still have much work to do on our new garden, but we have been enjoying the varied bird life we get. This handsome fellow has visited a few times now pecking about at the bottom of the bird feeders.

Isn't he gorgeous!

Goldfinches and greenfinches are a plenty, sometimes the neighbouring tree is all a chirp with birds waiting for a turn on the feeders.
This is a lesser Redpoll. He comes from time to time.
I think the goldfinches are one of my favourites though.
There are signs of spring in the garden too, but being in the Highlands we are a little behind lower regions of the country.
But it is lovely to see things come into bloom.

It makes me feel like painting, but I have so many other things to do ...sigh!

Have a lovely day.

A little plaque

I had fun trying out Tonic Studios lovely letter dies on this plaque. This is the Postal font I have used. It's a really nice set of letters to play with. I have also used the layering hexagon dies to make the background using up some scraps of paper. The buttons are from some past die sets.

Handy hint. Once you have laid out your letters where they are to go, glue them one by one, and do not...I repeat...do not hold up your plaque halfway through to see how it is looking. (Not that I would do that or anything !!! ) Ha ha !

Have a nice day.
