Swan 2 of 6

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all as well as you can be...hugs.

A warm welcome to new follwer Sally H, welcome aboard Sally, and thank you to Brenda for recommending my blog to her  :o)

I was very rudely awakend this morning by something landing on my shoulder. I shot out of bed quicker than I have been capable of for many a long while and found it was a huge bumble bee!!!

It would appear that our mini heatwave is ending right about now.  For myself that is good cuz I can't get on with heat, but I know a lot of you will be disappointed!

Enough waffling now, here is my card for today.

Same swan as No. 1 but a different pose. He looks a tad more threatening on this one methinks.
All card used is my usual white linencard from The Range.
My photograh feathered in PSP7 and printedout then cut with die-namics stitched circle die.
Wavy border cut with Spellbinders die.
Not much else I can say about it really :o)
Jackie xx

Another stunning Swan card Jackie and how clever to add the die cut behind the image, really draws the eye.

When I was speaking with Sal the other evening she was talking about birds she has seen at a reserve and you came immediately to mind, so please she migrated this way.

Hope you have a good weekend.

This is definitely an 'I'm not showing my double chin' pose from this swan!! Another fabulous card!

We have bumblers getting into our room at the moment too... there is a Berberis plant which is quite strongly scented underneath our window... and I think that's the cause!

Another wonderful photo of the swan, made into a beautiful card. Thanks for the lovely welcome. Still some sunshine here but a drop in temperature and some showers. I am guessing that our weather will be very similar, as I am just over the county border in Notts.
