I am honoured to be here today as the Guest Designer over at my favourite challenge blog Crafty Boots. Their current challenge "SPRING IS IN THE AIR" really inspired me to let "Bold Angel" take over for the day and use some of the brilliant Blue Jays and spring blossoms that I've been tickled to discover around my new home. I do hope you will join us in this wonderful challenge!

I am entering the following wonderful challenges:
My card today was totally inspired by the local Blue Jay community. I have discovered that they too like peanuts, and now they've started perching on the trees closest to the food! So here is my story of...
THE PEANUT HEIST!! (with an accent of unknown origin) lol
"Halloooo. Me name is Bernie da Blue Jay and I am on zee lookout for me morning snacks"
"WAIT...did me just see dat lady putting a peanut for dat squirrel? ME WANTS IT"
"Me has a plan, but me betters make sure da coast is clear first"
"ME LOOKS TO DA LEFT"
"ME LOOKS TO DA RIGHT"
"ME SWOOPS IN AT LIGHTNING SPEEDS AND SNAPS IT UPS"
"BWAHAHA...dat squirrel didn't even sees me coming!'
"I'M DA KING OF ZA WORLD!!"
My token morning coffee shot.
OK, so sky and clouds...not exciting, but in the city it was mostly smog so I love my clouds!
And a big hello from Chocolate Charlie and Dee Dee as they eat some lunch in the sun!
UPDATE: Less than 24 hours after taking these beautiful spring photographs, my world was covered in a blanket of snow! So I send this message to Mother Nature..."HEY CRAZY LADY. IF YOU WANT TO ADD GLITTER TO THAT GLUE YOU'RE SNIFFING, FINE, BUT DON'T DUMP YOUR WACKADOO ON ME, I'D RATHER NOT STEP IN IT!"
Can anyone name that quote??
