We have lorikeets in our fruit trees at present.  They come every year and eat our fruit but they are so pretty we can't be upset.  I haven't been able to take a photso because they blend into the foliage so well.  In the tree I can only see their backs.  When they finish the pear there is only a bare core hanging from the branch.  Very efficient eaters.

I have found a photo on the web.  Aren't they pretty?
Hope you have had a lovely weekend.  Thank you for dropping by



Tonights card is using a dog, a Shi Tzu, image.  Although I don't use animal images often I do enjoy it when I do.  We have always had family pets.  At present we have a cat, she tolerates us and allows us to share her home, a dog,he loves us unconditionaally and takes me for walks twice a day and now we have a chook who follows me around the backyard and is never far from my side when I am in the garden.  When we come in the gate after work there is a race between the dog and the chook as to who will reach us first.  Animals make you feel so loved.

Friends the Perfect Blend


For this weeks One Layer Wednesday Ardyth's OLW125  has asked for "Your Perfect Day".  This was a difficult topic, what is a perfect day.  I came up with perfect moments which put together makes up the perfect day.  Time with family, reading, walking the dog, at the beach, in the garden but in the end it came down to what stamps I had.  So tonight's card is not a perfect day but a perfect moment, coffee with friends.  Although this could turn into a perfect hour or two.  
Supplies:  White card, Stamping Bella image, MFT sentiment, Lyra pencils

Challenges -
Make it Monday: - Anything Goes
Crazy4 - Smile and happiness

Catch the bug - Anything Goes
Penny's - One for the girls
Sketchy Colours - #149 Blue, Lilac, White
I  liked the colour combination the Sketchy Colour Challenge but it was difficult to include something white on a one layer white card.  So I have left the vase and flower white.  I hope that counts?
