As we battle with the weather Hels aptly challenged Sunday Stamper this week is Birds press to go to the link! I expect most of us who are lucky enough to have a garden feed our feathered visitors. I live on an estate so do not have a huge variety of birds but the ones that come love the feeding station. I have had to put it up high because of my persian cats who I must admit are getting too old thankfully to hunt, but it always surprised me how two pampered fluffy lap cats could turn into hunting vixens! I have put out seed and peanuts and fat balls and meal worms and my garden robin is especially fond of the latter. Here is my offering this week on this theme.
Very difficult to photograph as the snow has covered the conservatory roof giving an eerie light so I took this indoors and the only place that worked was on the edge of the mantlepiece, sorry! I took a wooden shape of a bird house that was originally intended as a large plant label. Then I covered it in scraps of 7 Gypsies Conservatory papers and made a little ledge out of some mountboard, then edged all with some musical tissue tape. I stuck the label in a little box left over from a Christmas present covered in the same way and stuck this onto a square piece of mountboard for stability. The three stamped birds are from Paperartsy and Tim's 'Take Flight' set and then I die cut a tattered banner to wrtite Feed the Birds as a timely reminder!
I realise that an infatuated Gran can be a tadge over the top but please forgive me - I have to post this one of Ryder nearly 6 months and edible! I love him huge huge amounts! Enough said.
He has just come back from a week skiing in France and enjoyed every minute of the snow so was not disappointed when he saw what was here!
Take care dear blogging friends, walk carefully. x
