Hello..



It's been nice and cool here in the mornings.
But still heating up during the day. But this whole week
the weatherman stated that we should be under 100 all week long.
Which make me one happy camper.

I was able to catch this guy hanging out on my
Mexican Bird of Paradise. I was surprised he let me get this close.



Here is a flower that fell off my Mexican Bird of Paradise.
I just love the vivid colors of these flowers.  When they are
in full bloom they are bright orange and so pretty.
I am linking this up with Texture Tuesday.  




It's Tuesday, so you know I have a project to share with you.



Ros is our Host this week and is having us put Inchies on our project.




As you can see I made another Christmas card.  I was on
a roll for a little bit but then I fizzled out. :(
Hopefully I can get back on track.



I am pretty sure you know where I got this image.



To get all the details on this challenge you can head on
over to City Crafter Challenge Blog.


So I hope you are enjoying the change in weather
wherever you might be.

Hugs~

Love that first pic of the hummer...such beautiful soft colors. And your card is so lovely. Love when birds are at the center of attention.

I wonder what kind of hummingbird that is? Wow! He's gorgeous and posed perfectly for you. Your Christmas card is beautifully decorated. Love the Carte Postale design; I have several pieces of art and containers in my home office.

Beautiful little hummer isnt he!! I love the mexican birds always so cheery looking ;) Your card is so BEAUTIFUL!! I love the sweet little bird and the torn layers add a cool dimension to it. Hey you are under 100?? How can that be! I thought it was cooling here but supposed to be 108 for the next few days. Have a blessed week my friend:)

Beautiful shots, Linda. Always so LOVELY to peek into your garden and seeing your cute visitors :). Especially with the lovely music on. Restful.

That little humming bird just knew you were going to show everyone how pretty he is! Love the purple on his neck. Another pretty Christmas card...always love the carte postale theme. I'm still chilly in the mornings and enjoying the 70 degree sunshine in the afternoons. Still, no rain forecast for the next 5 days...weird huh? I think it all went to Las Vegas!

Kim Stevens said...

Love the colors in your hummer and it is always so exciting to capture one still or moving! This morning was lovely on my front porch, I so enjoyed a bit cooler for a change, especially since I won't be seeing a change in fall color for quite some time!!

Love the card!

It got very cold here overnight. I wasn't prepared for such a huge temperature drop (over 20 degrees!) so I am very very cold right now!

Fantastic Christmas card, looks really fabulous.

Sandie Edwards said...

Linda, your photographs are so breath taking... and so close to nature. I am very envious of your amazing skills. Your card is so precious.....
Excuse me not visiting as often as I would like too, we have major internet issues at the moment and your blog is extremely graphic/music intensive which is a no go at the moment. We should have our new connection in a few weeks... I cannot wait to go for a serious walk through your blog. So inspirational.... xxxx

Audrey Pettit said...

Your card is gorgeous, Linda! I love all the layers and love the torn edges and collage-style stamping. And your use of the inchies is out of this world! Love that sweet little bird image. Graphics Fairy, I'm guessing? ;)

missing moments said...

Beautiful pic of the hummer. Yep, the weather is changing here ... mornings a very chilly.

Lisa Gordon said...

Linda, the first photograph here is just gorgeous. What a colorful little one he is.

I love this week's card. That little white bow is simply perfect. Hard to believe that Christmas is not all that far away!

Wishing you a beautiful day, my friend.

P.S. Love your new blog design!
