Me again...

I just wanted to show you a quick card that I found on my hard drive earlier... and I don't think I've shown it before, so here it is..

I really like this card, and I love how the colours went together.. it was a very quick card I wanted to take to a follow up appointment at the hospital.

This is the card in full... quite simple, with a very simply layout.. but you know, I think these are often the best types!

I hope you like it too... I enjoyed making it..

I'll be back tomorrow with another card to show you.. something from the demo I had last weekend.

Oh.. before I forget... here's the daft birdie that we had to rescue earlier today..

It's not a brilliant picture, but you can see the little sparrow sitting on the edge of the feeder, munching it's way through a ton of food...

You see, this is what happened.. the woofers were taking an unusual interest in the bottom of the drainpipe and when I looked, couldn't see anything, so thought it was a little mouse that sometimes feeds on the bird table. I looked again later, and realised that the 'mouse' had a beak! It didn't quite sink in that there could possibly be a little birdy down the drainpipe!!

Anyway, we duly dismantled the guttering as it was the only way to remove the pipe, and there it was... a cute little sparrow. I lifted it out and it flew straight to the feeder to get something to eat and have some water. Bless it, little thing... I don't know how long it had been there.. now all we need to do is rebuild the guttering and put the downpipe back where it should be! I have put some chicken wire over the top of the pipe now, so this shouldn't happen again.

It bought back lots of reminders of why we have a hole in our sitting room wall with an air vent cover over... that was a starling that fell down the chimney, and the only way we could get it out was to drill through the wall! Fun times!

Anyway... until next time!

Happy Crafting!!
