The birds are nesting

Have you seen any birds around with twigs in their beaks?   It is one of the most satisfying sights you know that eggs will be laid and little chicks hatched.   Spring watch will be on TV soon with all those little spring babies to delight us all.

Driving around recently I spotted birds carrying nest building materials, no lambs in sight here and a threat of snow at Easter but I'm feeling very spring like.

Feeling chuffed with myself as I've used another piece of designer paper, the stash is now one sheet less.   The stamped image is a Stampendous stamp which I've coloured Chameleon Pens taking full advantage of their blending effects.   Then it was just a cast of working out which die shape to use, each option seemed better than the last so used the last one in the end.   With the die still in place the edge was dusted with blue DI.

Colour Crazy Craft Challenge - This fortnightly challenge is always anything goes but your project must include some hand colouring.

Try it on Tuesday - The call of Spring.   This challenge in it's original format of Tuesday Taggers was the first I joined the DT of.   It has changed a lot since then but still going strong.

Sisterhood of Crafters - Their theme is Birds.   Had to smile as one of the DT samples uses this stamp as does another entry.
