A lovely day today after all the terrible weather.  One of the ducks is sitting on eggs and the geese are still fighting.  A couple of cards for friends again.  I was experimenting with background techniques and it's only OK.  With some sun a chance to weed the asparagus bed so we can have some fresh for spring.... Roll on the sun.

A few cards I have made for friends.  I enjoy this steampunk from Graphic 45 and a little inspiration from Papercrafts Mag.  Also our fabulous watchdog on duty.  Meanwhile the geese are on the back verandah and we all know what that means......

Oh Melissa, Thank you for commenting and your inspiration.  I didn't even know the address of my blog but here it is and I've found it again.  I've had a great day with friends today, we embossed alumium foil, we scrunched it, we used it with die cuts and corrugated cardboard.  Then we painted it, alcohol inked it, stained it and sprayed it.  We came up with all sorts of ideas for embellishments and were quite pleased with ourselves.  It's nice to have some creative time - I have spent way too much time at the Bridge Club and on Bridge related activities.  On a positive note I (& partners) have had 2 wins and then a 2nd last to get me into perspective.  All the ducks are laying and I am saving eggs to put under M3 & M4 when I have enough.  The geese are fighting and we think we have 2 males and 5 females, but one of them is very fiesty.  She's either a girl with attitude or a closet boy - we will see....  Beautiful day for the middle of winter, full moon at night and lovley clear days.  Isn't life grand.
