I hope this post finds you happy and well! Let's see - what's good to share? Well, my little hummingbirds are as happy as can be! The feeders are being visited constantly. Now, I am going to say something, and I hope you will understand. Last week, or maybe the week before, the first hummingbird showed up where last year's feeder was placed - just beyond my scrap room window. There was no pole, nor was there a feeder. He just went right to the spot and stopped in mid air, fluttering his wings, where the feeder was last year! Then, he flew under the patio cover and fluttered by my window as if to tell me to get off my tushie and get out the feeder and nectar! Of course, I dutifully did that! Now, here is the thing. The hummingbirds fly south every Fall to where it is warm. This can be over 1,000 miles! When I think of how huge this planet of ours is, how the heck can a hummingbird find the exact spot the feeder was placed last year let alone find my back yard? The fact that this little guy went right to the very spot the feeder should have been told me he was one of last year's visitors. I am always amazed at life's miracles! So, that is my hummingbird story for now! **grin**
Well, it is my turn for "W"ednesday at the
Today, I am featuring a tag that I made with Wild Rose Studio's Birdhouse stamp which you can find here.
I wanted to get more bang for my buck with this stamp. How? I just modified the stamp so it would work for Spring and/or Summer. I did this by deleting the snowflakes from the air around the birdhouse, deleting the snow on the birdhouse rooftop, and changing the colors of the flowers. I also took all the little dots that are in the grass area around the birdhouse and colored them to match the flowers' colors. I was so surprised at how nicely that turned out! They look like flower buds now! (Shhh - I think I'm getting better at coloring wood, too! LOL) I don't think it looks wintery now. The addition of the Prima daisies helped me a lot, as well!
I inked the edges of the image mat and papers in brown. The papers are Pion Vintage Garden (in a light and dark teal green colors). I used a Marianne Design corner die on white Bazzill for the top and bottom tag caps. I also added some matching teal crinkled seam binding, a Magnolia Doohickey Die - Heart Swirl - which you can find here. The sentiment is also Magnolia. It is a mini stamp which you can find here. I love this little sentiment stamp and thought it would go perfectly with the birdhouse stamp.
