Watching the Hummingbirds

I put up 2 hummingbird feeders this spring and I have enjoyed watching the action.  The number of birds showing up to the feeder have gradually been increasing.  I sometimes have 3 at a time that come and of course chase each other off.  But they are fun to watch!
 Below she is peeking from behind the feeder.
 The chase is on!
 I believe this is a black throated hummingbird below

Daisy Delight Fun!

I have been playing with the daisy delight bundle.
I am lovin' it!  I also love the new Berry Burst In-Color!

The daisy delight set is a photopolymer.
I love that! because I was able to bend the stem to work the way I wanted.
Adding a little lace gives it a very delicate look

Have I mentioned the Glitter Enamel dots?  Love them!!
I can't wait to get the gold faceted gems (clear faceted in center of daisy)
They have been on backorder.

Sapphire Stampers Club March 16th- Hostess Linda B.

Had to get into Easter mode this club since Easter is in April.
Below we used the Sale-A-Bration set "Hey Chick"
A little sweet sugarplum and some peekaboo peach made a nice color combo. 
We also used some of the watercolor pencils. 
I am so happy that Stampin' Up brought them back.
Now if they could get enough so they weren't out of stock!
The mini egg carton below holds 4 eggs.
It is adorable!
 A little more peekaboo peach to coordinate with the card
 We also did this easy peasy watercolor technique
 below is using flirty flamingo and pear pizazz for the leaves
I liked it so much I tried it in different colors!

Sapphire Stampers Club Feb 16th- Hostess Kathy P.

We had a fun evening putting these projects together.
The Dream Catcher was a favorite!
 This Dream Catcher Card uses a doily to catch the dreams.
I did copy this idea from someone.  I can't remember who it was. 
But I loved it so much that I even bought the feather stamp set  just so we could make it.
 The Sale-A-Bration set Avant Garde is what was used for the card below
I love the color combination
 I love Stampin' Up embellishments
The Birthday card below uses one of the little party hats from the Birthday collection
