My New Bird Feeder


For Christmas, one of the gals I work with got me a little bird feeder that actually sticks on a window with suction cups.   My DH was very skeptical it would stay however, being the good sport he is,  he climbed up on a ladder and stuck it to my office window, added the bird feed and cleaned the window while he was there, LOL!    I've waited for a few days hoping some birds would find it and finally yesterday,  I saw that the little black, white and tan finches are landing on it for some seed.   They're very cute and I think the window scares them as they don't stay long but it's nice to have it on the window and I hope more come along.   

The finches inspired my "neutral" card for the challenge over at Color My Heart this week which was to use all Neutrals.   That was definitely a challenge for me as I'm a color kind of gal but ... I had help from the CTMH Silhouettes Pack I still have scraps of ...   All Good!

Happy Friday!

Supplies:   CTMH Silhouette Creative Basics Papers, CTMH Stamp A Tweet,  CTMH Ink Bamboo, Desert Sand, Black, CTMH Black Ribbon Rounds, CTMH Opaques Pearl

Yes, cute card AND story, Lela! Kudos for you, jumping right into the first challenge for 2013. I am laughing that you still have "Silhouette" paper in your hoard, oops I mean "stash". It was such a versatile paper pack, and I have bits and pieces, too.

Wonderful card, Lela! I liked the story behind it also. Your use of the CTMH Silhouette paper pack inspired me to do the same and I appreciate your great idea.

I've Arrived!

In my usual fashion, late but with a GREAT story to tell. I didn't join the bloggers of the world until now because what would I have to share, at the time, I didn't think anything...well...I've changed my mind. I do want to share with all my friends and family-- my thoughts, creations and ideas. So, welcome to my World.

We'll Live, Love and Laugh 4 Life together!

Looking out the Living Room Window I realized today was a good day to get those projects I've been putting off DONE! It was beautiful to look at but I sure didn't want to get out in it this morning! Good thing I was on vacation.
