I think we're gently moving into Autumn here, probably my favourite season. We have what I thought was a collared dove, but we now think is a pigeon, nesting where it did last year - in the middle of an ornamental bush/tree in the front garden. Not high enough to be safe from cats either. At first we thought there was just the one rather scrawny baby but the other day Len spotted two of them looking at him. Fingers crossed both of them survive to fledge and leave the nest safely. The hedgehogs are still eating us out of house and home and if they don't have any late 'hoglets' then they should be all set for the Winter ahead.
I needed a card for Len's great nephew's 16th Birthday in a bit of a hurry - and this is the result. Quite similar in design to a snippets card I made for Challenge #406 HERE. As they would say in Thailand - 'Same, but different':
- 5.75" x 5.75" square white card blank
a sheet of paper from the very dramatic Altenew 'Poured Acrylic' set of papers, trimmed to 5.5" x 5.5" and glued onto the card front
- a genuine snippet of white card, die cut using a Lawn Fawn die called 'Giant Happy Birthday to You' and the Cuttlebug- then just glued the sentiment to the card front using a Zig glue pen - finished!
Just love a super fast card - my 'in-house critic' said the background looks like a piece of modern art.☺
