HM Tricky Treats


 What is in here, a trick or a treat?  Am I putting it in or taking it out?  Or eating it quickly before little Monica sees it?

The sentiment is punched and stacked.  I wonder if the cat has noticed what's going on.

iSpy #41

 iSpy #41

Every week, Lysha puts up a photographic challenge with prompts for us to look out for, then we share on Lysha's Saturday (my Sunday).  It's always wonderful to see how people are inspired.

The prompts this week are: Mess, Patch, Mystery, Funny, Own choice.


Mess:  Here is the woodshed.  We don't have a fire anymore, so this is what becomes an unused woodshed.  The firewood is waiting for our son to come and collect


Patch:  My address book which is falling to bits and is patched using fancy duct tape.

Mystery:  It is a mystery to us as we watch the seasons go by and the birds appear and disappear at random times, obviously following food sources.  This week the parrots are back, having been away for a couple of months.  I took this from the dining room through the blinds, as they would have flown away if I'd gone outside.  At the moment poa annua is in seed in the lawn and we are seeing lots of seed-feeding birds on the ground like sparrows and quail.

Funny:  Holly, one of our granddaughters - I love that face!


Own choice: A swallow.  This li'l fella must have come into the garage when the door was open and then stayed quiet until I arrived and started in on the decluttering again.  It was easy to catch between two pieces of paper against the window, and didn't seem fazed at all with being held.  So tiny and beautiful.


Enjoy the world this week, and check in on the challenge, here: ispy

Tricky

 

This is a pinwheel tower card - the first one I have made.  It sort of flips and springs open, but folds down flat for a standard envelope.  I made it for someone who has been in lockdown for ages so she could look at a different inspiration each day.

Sentiment stamp: unbranded

Friends Come


 I like this wonderful sentiment and have 'rusticated' it a bit by leaving random loose embossing powder on it before heat embossing and by sanding the dry embossed strip.  I can't seem to resist embellishing with that little something extra, like (this time) the liquid Nuvo Drops in green and black.

Hubble Bubble


Hubble bubble here comes trouble ...  maybe it's bite of pumpkin or a gnaw on the old skull?

It's that time of year again.  We don't really go hugely for hallowe'en here in NZ like they do in the USA or other places.  I guess because we don't have the history behind it and the pumpkin thing is the wrong time of year for us - we are just sowing them!  But here's a bit of fun anyway.
