Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday. Hope you are all having a great week so far.
I have another sneak peek to share with you featuring... Maritime DSP and Work of Art. Oh.. and I also have a couple of wildlife shots for you.
I used the same layout as I had on this card but wanted to showcase a different DSP. I chose two of the DSPs from the soon to be released Maritime DSP set and paired it with three stamps from the Work of Art set and an old favorite of mine - By the Seashore.
Here's my card
Mmmm... it was only when I photographed it, I noticed that I had not secured the lower right hand corner down to the card base so had to go and do that afterwards! I really love this DSP it is so diverse and I know I am going to enjoy showcasing it for you on other cards.
Colleen- you asked how I converted my wood mount stamps to clear mount..... Easy with the clear mount foam that SU sells. I carefully peeled the rubber away from the wood mount sticky base and then secured the rubber to the clear mount foam and cut around the rubber with craft scissors. They take up SO much less space in the clear mount than they do in the wood mount. I'll take a photograph over the weekend and attach it to one of my posts to show you.
On a personal note:
OK... it's cold again! There's a really chill wind, but at least the sun was shining. Now it looks as though it is going to rain!
On Monday we had one male Oriole. On Tuesay we had two males and a female. This morning we had 3 males all fighting to get to the feeder. I managed to take a great shot of this little guy.
Isn't he handsome? They are loving the jelly, but the mandarins are really juicy and really sweet and one of the Orioles chooses to eat the oranges instead of the jelly. I don't blame him, I've been enjoying the mandarins, too!
I caught a shot of these two resting on the logs in the wetland:
I watched them yesterday evening. They wandered under the feeder and he kept a keen watch whilst she forraged for food. It was so sweet to watch them.
Whilst I'm on the subject of photographs... thanks to Mary Frances for sending me some amazing shots of the local avi-fauna taken by her hubby. The shots were wonderful, including a shot with a Sandhill crane and its offspring. Thanks, Mary Frances.
I'll be back tomorrow with another card and a video! Not of card making... but of wildlife!
In the meantime, thank you for your visit - and your comments. Warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight. Jeanne, thanks for the great update on Gavin!
