OLC - Birdie Wishes

Hi there,

I decided to have a play with serif CraftArtist last night and this is what I came up with:

It is actually printed on a square card with a white bordered edge, but for some reason when I added my watermark it has really made the card pale and difficult to see (or maybe it is the colour balance on my computer?).

I was inspired by the following challenges:
Dragonfly Dreams - Animals
ATCAS #117 OLC (printed straight onto cardstock)
MAWTT #51 Things that fly
AHS #224

And here is the inside of the card - I have actually added a sentiment inside too!!!

 I have some wildlife pictures to share from in the garden from last week (those rare occasions when we had a little bit of sun):

 Mushroom - he was very thin and unfortunately I accidentally squashed him shortly after taking this photo, as I needed to water my plants!!

Look at the damage!!

Look at those lovely colours. There was also a second one that was sat on the bed part of the hutch that was even redder! We have a few of these round the pond as we noticed when we went out to feed the ducks earlier today. They are flying alongside Southern Hawker dragonflies. Unfortuately I didn't have my camera with me so no photos were taken :(

Here is a fish tank update also @ just over 154 hours.
Yup it is really getting there now!! Just need a few more hours where I do not have anything else to do and I might even finish it - hear that Time Fairy!!! lol.

Thanks for looking,

Hugz Tinz
