.for the ........ 'Man in Your Life'  

'I have created  a digital Birthday card using  a hands on base
 for  some one
 who loves  cycling
A short post today as I am having trouble keeping my script 
 coloured black 
and I have a feeling it may be all underlined,
 I think ...blogger problems or computer gremlins are having a party here. 
so far I have spent nearly two days in short sessions with this small post.

Thank you for calling  in  here and I hope you will join us at TioT's

Listen to the birds

So often we are so busy with our daily lives to stop and listen.
If we are in a town its usually traffic we hear,  the  chatter of people talking, maybe shouting or children playing.  I am lucky to live close to the country and perhaps have got so used to hearing the birds twitter and sing. Perhaps  I take this for granted, its part of  where I live.
This is another digital page for Matilde's theme of Birds over at
I haven't heard the local owl for a while, perhaps he is away on holiday while the other birds are  making up with their morning chorus and the continual racket the wood pigeons are making just now.

Thank you for calling in and I hope you have a good day.

Butterflies at..... Try it on Tuesdays

A new theme begins today at Try it on Tuesdays


I have made a digital card to send to a friend using a hands on page from my journal as a stating point. The background colour was a mop up and I used a variety of stamps before stamping and colouring  the main flower image.
I was able to brighten the colours in the digital computer program I use as well as adding the butterflies.

You can use any format or style that you enjoy   as long as you follow  the current TioT's theme, we look forward to seeing what you create.

Adventures with the bird family.


Billy.... I know you can fly

but that is going to teach your sister  .. bad habits.

Another adventure of the bird family 

I will be linking to the theme Matilde

 has chosen for us this month ....Birds.....  over at Art Journal Journey.

I shared Billy learning to fly on my first  digital journal page,

 this time his sister is about to learn to fly  and she is asking  her mam if she can  fly to the rim of the  glass  and follow her brother.

I think the answer would be NO.

Thank you for calling in to see me  today and I hope you will join us at AJJ.

Use a Stencil.... at TioT's

 Use a Stencil
..... is  the new theme for the next two weeks over at....

I used a variety of stencils to make  the background
for this card. Distress inks for colouring
 with  a silhouette style  floral stamp for my main image.
 The sentiment strips were computer generated.

We hope you will join us at TioT's
 and look forward to seeing how
 you interpret this new theme.

Birds for Art Journal Journey


May 1st and a  new theme begins today over at
Matilde is our host for this month and has chosen the theme ....
 please call over to the AJJ Blog,
 to find all the information and challenge rules rules ,
 also the links where you can visit Matilde and see the inspiration she has shared with us all.

Once again my journal page has been created in the digital computer programs I use [see sidebar].
Springtime and the blossoms can be seen  in the trees
 the young birds will soon  be all hatched and  getting ready to  leave the nests. 
I hear bids chattering in the woodland  and my garden and wonder what
 the mother birds will be  saying to encourage the young ones 
 when they are learning to fly.

Thank you for calling in to see me  and I hope you will join us at Art Journal Journey.
