Hi Everyone. Happy Thursday.
Well, sadly, I did not get into my stamping space to create a card for tonight. I am hoping that I will get to play later tomorrow afternoon when my new SU goodies arrive though!
I promised to let you know who won blog candy from this post. The question that I asked was what two stamp sets had been used to create the card. Three of you correctly answered that I had used The Open Sea and In Wilderness. Even though In Wilderness is a retired set, I kept it because I love the bald eagle so much!
I dug around in my little stack of SU goodies and found three things from convention. I will be despatching one to Tracy, Cynthia and Marilyn. Well done, ladies. Please can you send me an email with your physical addresses and I will pop your blog candy in the post to you.
The weather is finally warming up! Actually it got to the mid-40s today and we noticed lots of Minnesotans sitting outside at cafe's and restaurants. We certainly are a hardy bunch. Actually, I think we are all suffering from severe cabin fever and are desperate to get outside and make-believe that it's the middle of spring! In the next 10 days it's going to be low 50s, high 70s and low 40s!
The snow is finally melting and our wetland is starting to resemble its name. There are puddles of water everywhere and we are starting to see water birds spend a little time with us. Last night I was lying in bed and heard a faint little peeping noise. A single, lone, solitary little spring peeper was out and about trying to find a mate. It was such a sweet noise and he must be the first of the frogs out and about. Once I heard him, I knew that spring was definitely on her way.
We also caught sight of something else visiting us this week. A first for us
Sorry it's not a great photo, but I had to take it with my phone as my camera battery was dead! I think you an see that it is a pheasant, though! We were thrilled to see him and he visited us for two days in a row, scratching around underneath the bird feeder.
I'll be back tomorrow. Hopefully with something created from my SU pre-order! I really love the new catty. It's fresh, modern and full of fabulous eye candy. I was really excited by the catalog that we were able to see on-line. I made a very long list of things that I wanted and can't wait for May 31 to put in my order from the main catty.
As always, thank you for visiting my little corner of the stamping blogosphere. Warm hugs and prayers to those of you who need a little lift tonight.
