You Felt it...


Here is a photo of the little hummer that loves to hang out in my Chase tree..  
This is where he sits all day long guarding his feeder.
I hope you don't get to tired of seeing photo of this little fella.
He's the only thing worth photographing in my backyard lately.


I just love all the different colors of this little fella. 
It's always fun to sit and watch him.
   




Onto this weeks challenge over at



Ros is our host this week and is asking us to add some felt to our project.
"YOU FELT IT"




So here is a CAS card I made with a pretty little felt flower on it.
I also used some washi tape.  This is one of the first times I have
used washi tape on a card.  I am going to have to use it more often. 




I has so much fun with the first card I make another one. 
Don't you just love the green polka-dot washi tape I used on this card. 




We have a great sponsor this week.
Hop on over to CCCB and get all the details. 




Before I go I just wanted to say thanks so much for all your kind comments.
They really did bring my spirits up..   You guys are the best!

I go get my stitches out of my ear today and tomorrow I will get the
stitches out from on top of my head. YEA!


Again thanks for all the wonderful comments.
They mean the world to me!

Hugs~

Oh I do miss the hummingbirds. We gave our feeder to my mom when we packed up. Hoping we will have some here come spring. I never was able to capture them so well- like you have here. Our porch was very dark & I really struggled with it. Hoping it's easier here.

I can never see enough photos of the gorgeous hummers as we dont see them here. How lucky you are to see them every day:)

Love the cards also,...good job!

I have become a follower of your blog, and will visit as often as I can.
