A couple of nature pix

My second most favorite hobby is bird watching. Here's a Great Crested Flycatcher attempting to build a nest in a nesting box my husband put up for them this spring. They are beautiful birds from the side or front view with a crest and pale yellow breasts. They are about the size of a Blue Jay.

And here's our bird feeder sneak thief - in the day time no less! He (she) has also been pillaging my oriole feeder of all its grape jelly, too! Grrr! Have to take the good with the bad I guess when you're feeding all the critters in the yard.

June's Stamp Club Sketch Challenge

Here's my take on this month's sketch challenge for our stamp club. The new paper is Valise from Memory Box. The crocheted circle is from Webster's Pages and the stamped image is from Endless Creations.
