Mid-March Cards and More Birds

Birthday card for my PT.  Used the same set below for a Get Well Card.

Image stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with my SU markers.  

We should be seeing more of these spring flowers but not yet.  One yellow crocus was discovered in the yard on Saturday but was eaten by Sunday.  

The goldfinches, still in their olive drab are hungrily swarming the thistle feeder.

While the flicker and blue jay scavenge the ground for morsels.

I think the Blue Jay should think twice about sneaking up on the Flicker.  Take a look at that Flicker beak!

And now, after all these years, the bluebirds have become comfortable hanging out at the suet feeder.  Here is a Mr. patiently waiting his turn.


  1. love the row of bottles stamp. You see so many lovely birds . . . thanks for sharing.

  2. Those Vivid Vases cards are really lovely, Lorraine. I love the shade you've used for the bottles. I like the first one, with the doily and flower trim. It's the first time I've looked closely enough to see that there's a daffodil and tulip and hyacinth. It's always a treat to see your birds. Funny, in their winter clothes your goldfinches look an awful lot more like ours!
    I'm determined to make time tomorrow to upload and edit a couple of recent photos before April is here..the upstairs computer never even got switched on today.

  3. Oh - and the Flicker is amazing looking. It wasn't the beak I noticed first but that splash of red - I'll have to get out my North American bird book and check them out.


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
