Little Birds

Hello again...Are you well?
Today we were expecting sunshine and 25C Temperatures, well I can assure you it's far from that here, maybe later it will brighten up.

As well as trying to get to grips with this new blogger system, I've been using up some watercolour scraps. The little bird stamps (an old set by Winnie & Walter) were just the right size


Sometimes when I have no inspiration I stamp, emboss and paint leaves which always get used one way or another


They're a bit of a motley crew these little guys but they make me smile


Especially these chubby little ones


Which reminds me, our government is now asking us to lose weight and get fit in an attempt to help our chances of survival should we contract the virus. I guess I need to put on some disco music and do a few twirls...

Have yourselves a lovely day

Oh I love these plump little birdies, so cute and the leaves are so pretty too! I have to laugh at the disco comment, take videos LOL! Our weather has been kind of nice this week, not as humid as it was last week. We are traveling home tomorrow for about 3 days then back here for a month again, hoping to bring my stencils and maybe some watercolors and stamps. Have a great day my friend!

Your bird cards are so adorable Ros. LOVE the sweet faces on the first card. Looks like they want to ask a question. :) And the second is just adorable with those chubby birds. Great way to use up watercolour paper scraps. I which my scraps turned out like yours. :) Hope the weather does warm up and you finally get some summer weather. Take care and stay safe. xx

Oh Ros these are just adorable! LOVE these little birds and the different ways you've used them! What a great idea to make vines, etc when you're not really in the mood for full card making (I'll have to remember that!) I too got a chuckle when I read that you folks are now being requested to lose weight to help in the fight against the virus ... is that disco music I hear in the background? LOL Take care my friend and thanks once again for wonderful inspiration!

Those little chubby birds look just like our newest brood of bluebirds, Ros! LOve them all - and am a sucker for a beautiful leafy die cut! Yours are gorgeous, embossed in gold!

They make me smile too Ros! They may be a motley crew, but they are absolutely ADORABLE and both of your CAS designs are delightful! Hugs. :0)

I love your cute fluffy watercolored birdies, Ros. Awesome ways to use your leaf images that were waiting for a home. TFS and hope it warms up! Love and Hugs..Nancy

These are ADORABLE and so well done! Did you 'fussy-cut' them? You did a terrific job, if so! Those branches and leaves would have been HARD! Love them!♥

Bonnie said...

Love, love, love these sweet little birds tucked among the leaves! They remind me of all those fledglings flitting around in the branches and begging for food. Sweet, sweet cards, my friend! Be careful with those twirls now!

Maria said...

Those sweet little birdies make me happy, too! You did a great job water coloring them, so pretty! And, gorgeous leaves for those little birds to rest on! Both are wonderful CAS cards, so delightful!!

Those little birds are just darling! They're so plump I have to imagine they're still babies. So cute! Your leaves on these cards and the previous post look like stained glass. Absolutely gorgeous! Good luck with the disco twirls!

Pauline said...

Oh Ros, I love your plump little birds, they are such happy guys, they make me smile! Love your leaves, great colouring on those! These are both beautiful. Oh my goodness you make me laugh, with your disco twirls, you are too funny! Take care Ros!

Those puffed up birds are super cute and so adorable Ros. Both cards are beautiful x.

Greta said...

Oh I love your little birdies & branches, Ros! I went back to the old blogger. Hope I read that right--we'll have both choices? At least your government is giving good advice rather than ignoring the facts! Such a devastating year.

Those must be the sweetest birds ever! They really make me smile... and think of the bird that Larry brought in earlier tonight which I was lucky enough to catch and set free again. That cat is a real hunter, less than 30 minutes later, she brought a mouse... never a dull moment here.
