from babs bird

a suitably birdy card from babs bird to stripygoose. I'm a little worried about the guy with the tophat and pointy stick as he looks very disapproving...  great card! Thanks babs bird. Keep sharing the art :>)

a yellow finch with a beady eye from Gail - thank you

or is it a canary? either way as Feynman said... "You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you're finished, you'll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird... So let's look at the bird and see what it's doing -- that's what counts..."

Anyway, thank you Gail for the collage which I like very much, especially the collection of bird stamps. See you soon in the post, my friend! …

baggie boekie from Kate in Greece

This is a real treat and packed with goodies, add n pass and something form the 'time' series. And the really neat thing that doesn't come across in the photos is the lovely crinkly sound of the paper when the pages are turned. Thank you so much! I'm just getting into making boekies and this is inspiring. 

Tempting contents...…
