WOYWW #176

Hi all, I have made 2 cards so back in the swing of it all again now that everything is planted in the vegie garden and all coming up so well now that the bugs are under control..
So here is my desk...

The card below is what I made with the papers I had on my desk last week. 

The progress of the vegies, snow peas, mignonette lettuce and onions and the great beer bug catcher.

Very exciting news though the Tawney Frogmouth owls are nesting in the tree in our backyard.  I will try to get a better photo when they have the babies they are so cute when they are little and trying to fly.  They where there last year, they had 2 babies so will be looking forward to the babies hatching.  It is so lovely to have them in the tree though its so very special.  You will have to look hard to see him, he is at the top of the photo in the middle. She was sitting on the nest so couldn't really see her very well, she is not in the photo she is on the other side of the tree. 

So off you go and have a peek and see what all this talk about desks is all about. Pop in over to Julia's  Stamping Ground and join in the fun..
Have a great day 
Sandy :)

  17. Lovely card - I like the panels of patterned paper and the way you have stamped up the topper. Look forward to seeing those baby owls once they are hatched - such a privilege to have them nesting close enough to see them. Belated happy WOYWW and I hope you have a great weekend.

  18. great post today! I loved watching the babies that hatched in the basket on my patio last year. Look forward to seeing the baby owls! Love the card. Very pretty. Veggies look awesome and healthy! Thanks for sharing and have a great week. Glad you stopped by my blog! Vickie #71

  19. Hi Sandy - thank you so much for popping by. Your card is gorgeous - It is just perfect. Love the colour combo, the layout and.....well just everything about it really. Thank you for sharing. How wonderful to have baby owls to watch - so much more exotic than sparrows though they are cute too! Belated WOYWW Hugs from Helen 77

  20. Beautiful, elegant card, and thank you for sharing all those pictures of your flourishing garden. Heading into winter here, so it's lovely to be reminded of spring and fresh growth; and how amazing to have the owls nesting right in your back garden. Belated happy WOYWW!

  21. Never heard of those frogs. How inspiring

  22. Glad to hear that the garden is planted and ready to go. How nice to see it sprouting. Great crisp card! It's nice that you can play again.

    Thank you for the kind wishes about the passing of grandpa kitty. He had a good life once we got him, and he probably had a good life when he lived at the frat house, just that time in between was a little rough for him.

  23. amazing post :)
    your blog is great!


Thank-you for the lovely comment..
