Sweet Treat

 



A simple Christmas gift tag using part of a Lili of the Valley Simply Print, matted onto gold mirri card then Kraft. We have 4 feeding stations for birds in the garden and put out about 12 fat balls and 2-3 feeders every day I love seeing the birds feed. Unusually we have 2 pairs of robins visit, I think they nested and reared their chicks in a large cotoneaster bed or in the ivy near the burn that runs alongside the garden.



Thank you for popping in today I appreciate your time and would love it if you left a comment.

Beautiful tag Meg, such a lovely image.
I love to watch the birds in the garden, we have a large shrub and evergreen honeysuckle just outside our patio doors, with a bird feeder nearby, there seemed to be several nests in there earlier in the year - we get a grandstand view of all the comings and goings!

This is really pretty and would also make a lovely Christmas tree ornament. I feed the birds in our yard too. My favorite is watching them take baths in a ground bath. There will be 5-7 taking baths at the same time and water goes everywhere. 😊

What a lovely tag you made! My hummingbirds have finally headed south so I will be putting up their feeders until next Spring. Enjoy your birds!!

Kathleen said...

Fabulous card, super image and a great background. We have one bird box, so put out food as well in other places. We have been lucky a few times but our garden is the pathway for quite a few local cats, I don't really mind in the summer but they bug me in the winter, tried all sorts of deterrents but they don't seem to work.

Hi Meg! Hope you are doing well! This is such a pretty tag and I love the bird images! We also have feeders out all year round and they are hungry little things! We have all kinds of birds but I love the bluebirds in the early spring and the large woodpeckers in the winter! Take care!
Hugs- Rachelle

We have lots of bird feeders in our back yard. I work from home and love seeing what birds come during the day.

This card is so gorgeous! I love the bell and the birds are really pretty.
