Do you miss me? I sure miss you!
Annie. I used it through two note pads and a dried-up pen, so it was time to make it into a beautiful card. I added the piece to a partial paper doily and glued it over the edge of a tall card base. Simples. QACAS. The sediment is from The Alley Way set "Words to Live By." The duodecuple flat sequins are by PTI.
A Changing of the Guard
This little hummer wonderbird is no doubt Hitler's offspring, but how awesome that he obviously tokes after his mother as he is uber friendly, nearly tame! After a few days, he has started coming to the branch or feeder when I "whistle" for him! If you are s(coughing), you can go to YouTube and see videos of people with hummers perched on their shoulders, heads, hands.
Needles to say, I'm all over this and enjoying long minutes communing with my little dude every time I go back and forth between the Playhouse and the Big House! When I return from my vacation, I am going to try holding a container of sugar water in my palm (I saw that on another blog, but I can't remember where) and I'll have Mister take some photos for you if it works. Wish me luck! So beciting!
I'll keep you posted on my domestication efforts. And if you notice I'm visiting less, you'll know where my time is going! Already I'm picturing the next time I run into old friends and they ask me how I am keeping busy in retirement. Erm. Do you think they will put me in a padded cell if I'm honest and say that I'm trying to tame a hummingbird? Maybe we should just keep that between us!

Rebecca of Rebecca's Cookery and Crafting. As you can tell from the name of her blog, Rebecca loves horseback riding and chemistry. I'm kidding, of course. Just seeing if you were paying attention! Rebecca loves to cook and she loves to craft so you get double the goodies when you follow Rebecca. By the way, Rebecca only started blogging in August, as in two months ago! Please do make a special effort to go and welcome Rebecca to this wonderful caring and supportive Blogland community of ours!
Susan Butler of Scrumplescrunch. No, this time I'm not kidding, even though that sounds like one of my made-up words! Sue has been blogging since 2010. She is an artist. In addition to making cards, Sue has enjoyed sewing, cooking, cake decorating, quilting, and scrapbooking. She is a designer and an award-winner.

Vikki Ryan of Vikki's Stamping Story Take 2. Vikki is from Tasmania and she has been blogging since 2013. Vikki works full-time so she doesn't have time to blog very often, but when she does, it's great to see either the cards she has made or the beautiful photographs she shares!
Kris B. of Created by Kris B. Kris has been blogging since 2012. She met me through my NBUS Challenge, but the pleasure has been all mine! It's no wonder she is a designer! I simply adore all of her card designs and how she interprets the various challenges she enters. I think you'll agree with me after you have visited Kris!
