Back yard birds

I always love it when the various bird species come to visit. This one, is a Little Corella

which although fairly common in the suburbs, becomes more so, as Winter (the Dry season) draws closer. As we have had such a prolific Wet Summer season the Corellas and Galahs are taking advantage of the blossoms and seed pods that are forming.
Consequently, my bird bath is regularly full of debris! But it's a small price to pay for regular visitors

Girlie postcard

I volunteered to make a post-card for swapping on the "stitchin fingers" site where the theme currently is "girlie"

Still being in a bit of a recycle mode after my recent Recycled cards for Postmark'dArt group,
I once again used paper fabric as the foundation, and added "fussy cut" pieces from an Avon catalogue.
To me, the pink, ruffled dress seemed so "girlie" and feminine!

Adding some lace, crystals, beads and ribbon completed the card.
