Spring Bird!

Hello to You All, I hope all is good with you and that the week is going well for you so far.....mid week already, where has the time gone!!

Been a mixed day today, very heavy rain through the night, I know cos I saw every hour....shattered today, and quite a few showers throughout the day. I'm hoping the weather shaped up for Alistair and his chums who are off for a few days of fun in the hills on Friday, and if all goes well he won't be back till Monday, obviously Teallach and I have all fingers and paws crossed that the weather hold for them.

Thank you all for your visits and the lovely comments on my last cards, I do appreciated the time you take.

I've a card that I made for Crafty Individuals when I was their GD way back in February and had forgotten to post;
 CI -483 this lovely image has been coloured with Faber-Castelle  Pastel Pencils. Background made with Oxides, base card is Kraft card. My little dragonfly is a CI die cut out in velum and with a few gems.

A short post this time around, so I'll love you and leave you and see you soon,

Good thing Alistair has you two rooting for his weather to stay good enough that he can enjoy his rambling. Bet you are enjoying a little 'me' time - hope so anyway. I love this cute little bird. The pencil coloring looks fabulous, and the yellow blossoms look so cheery, with the yellow bow. Love how you used the DOX to create the marbled 'sky' behind this little brown bird (looks like our Carolina wren). TFS & Hugs. Hope ya'll stay dry.
