    Birds, frost and more birds

    Darn bird decided to make a nest in the broken soffit above the nesting boxes of the chicken coop. There are now babies in this nest. I have not tired to take a picture, it has just been too cold. Sorry! I am sooo bummed!! My Magnolia was getting ready to POP open, but this darn frost… killed them all! Ohhh, I am soo bummed.

StazOn ink for watercolors Momento ink for Stampin’ blends I almost forgot to mention the Tailored Tag Punch. That is what I used so that you can see the Momma duck that is stamped on the inside.
