The trees are coming into leaf and I noticed several nests on the lake
I then spotted over on the island that there are some babies already hatched. I call these dino birds...I have no idea of their real name but they fly to our area every year and to me they look just like dinosaurs! They had 3 sweet chicks and the father was very protective to them.
Bear loved watching them.
There were also lots of young swans, these are not babies from this year but they still have their young feathers. We had such a pleasant few hours enjoying all the wildlife.
There is lots of new life in the park so I thought my card today should be a new baby card. There is also a real baby boom around me, lots of little ones due. I also need to get my stock up of baby cards as there are exciting crafty plans ahead for me; more news about that in May. I was commissioned to make the card below for a baby girl and used a fun digi image from Ladybug Craft Inks (remember dear Kerry, I was her GD several times before she sold up, fond memories). Sorry but these images are no longer available, I treasure mine. This sheep is called Eunice.
I coloured my image with Promarkers and and added some fun flock for texture.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.
Noor UK anything goes
Card mania 5/5 spring
The Ribbon Girl 2/3 any image goes
Little Claire's 2/3 spring colours
Crafty Boots 2/3 use a sentiment
Paper Creator 1/3 polka dots or gingham my paper has polka dots on it
As you like it favourite animal I love all animals but my favourite spring animal is sheep and their lambs as they really symbolise new life for me.
Thanks as always for your kind visits and comments.
Bye for now,
