Dino ducks

Down at the local ponds there is a family of Egyptian geese (or dino ducks as I affectionately call them) who I have watched grow all season. There were orginally 9 babies and now 6 have come to near adult hood. here they are with their Mum and Dad.

They have really got to know me as I take food for them and they come out to greet me.
The chicks cheep and the adults honk their hellos!

I am sure it will not be too many weeks until they migrate for the winter. It has been a total joy watching them grow up.
My card today had to me a new baby card. My latest for sale at Dotty's Teahouse, Carshalton, SM5 2EP. There has been quite a baby boy boom and I have sold lots recently.
This one is a Lili of the Valley simply print image with a hand stamped sentiment. The little birds on the backing paper make me think of my sweet dino babies.

I would like to enter it into the following challenges;

A bit more time to craft 1/3 anything goes
Dies R Us Nature I have used a Works circle die around the sentiment and Memory box stitched hearts.
Cute card Thursday 1/3 anything goes
The Cutie pie challenge1/3 celebrations
Happy Little stampers 1/3 anything goes with dies I have used heart dies and one for my sentiment

Thanks so much for stopping by today,

Bye for now,
