Seems spring is determined to arrive a few months early this year. I'm still riding my winter high, and I'm not quite willing to let that go just yet. Meanwhile, you guessed it, I'm still using older photos of winter shots until this world of brown brightens up a bit. I don't mind white, green or even orange, but honestly, mud is NOT a colour! lol



What is black and white, and fluffy all over? . . . 
A Chickadee-dee-dee! Lol


"OK, I'm starting to get a cramp in my face, can I move now?"
~Female Sparrow~


I'm so excited to get another shot of a Starling, they seem very timid and usually fly away when I approach the window. They are just so gorgeous with their winter plumage all fluffed up. 


"Ummmmm, you're hovering human! I'm not gonna do any tricks, just wanna eat my lunch!" 
~Busty Bertha ~


"I'm giving you my very best cutstie-squirrel-face look, is it working?" 
~one of the twins~


"There was a time when I could actually hide behind this tiny tree! Stupid winter padding!"
~Missy~


SQUIRREL MACRO!
Thought I would do something different for my macro today. This is my sweet girl Marcia. You can see how thick her winter coat is, and how wonderful her colours are! She is such a darling!!


That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. If you have any questions or interesting tidbits about today's wildlife, please let me know.

  8. Gorgeous card Pamellia, the papers are so beautiful, who doesn't love a teddy bear! As always your attention to detail is amazing, wonderful layering and embellishments, love the warm honey colours with the white.
    I'm convinced the squirrels and birds pose for you and your camera... 'here she comes guys, remember what I told you, look adorable ...she has peanuts!!!' Whatever it is your photos are brilliant!
    I don't like mud either!

  10. What a beautiful, sweet card, Pamellia! Teddy bears are a favorite of mine. Your photos are always so amazing showing such wonderful details. I know most people are switching to spring thinking but I'm not ready to let winter go either.

  11. How cute your Teddy-tag card is, Pamellia! Such sweet, soft brown-ness makes your card feel all warm-and-fuzzy. The added lace and delightful layering techniques make it feel precious and endearing. I hate having to "give up" adding the dimension to my cards these days. Interesting that OTHER countries can mail things so reasonable INTO the US, but mailing them outside the US is an arm and a leg if they are more than 1/4" anywhere in the creation. Sigh. Sorry. Off my rant now LOL

    Those dripping icicles from the golden-orange leaves are wonderful! So pretty - I have not been watching our weather the past few weeks because we are experiencing May temperatures in February, like you. But this morning we awakened to a 38 degree cool snap (3.33 if you use C instead of F). It was quite welcome. I hope nothing was hit be any frost, as all the plants are blooming.

    Chickadees are among my favorite birds - watching them share the feeders is always a joy - so caring and sharing are they. Your photo of the Starling is stunning! I had no idea their feathers were that incredible! Your squirrels are so chubby and thick-furred compared to ours (not to mention colorful! Ours are pretty much all the same shade of gray).

    Wishing you well! huggers, de

  12. A beautiful card and so many gorgeous layers that look as if they're all tied up with lace.
    Great photos of the wildlife today, even if they did make me feel chilly - the sun is actually shining here.
    Have a great weekend.

    1. Thanks so much Jackie! I'm not sure they really are twins, but they arrived to me on the same today, one right after the other. They play together in the tree and leave together in the evening. And most importantly, they look exactly the freaking same! So I just call them the twins. haha.

  29. Love the neutral colors of your card today. The teddies are adorable. And I always love the frames you make! Incredible pics today. Love the bird photos...all fluffed up. And the squirrels. Great one of the ice covered branches. And your macro of the thick fur reminds me of why I leave far south....would move more south if I could .;) we'll be enjoying the low 80s F this week once the chilly temps are done today. Maybe 70F :(

  31. Love the creamy tans in this oh-so-gorgeous baby card. The teddies are adorable tucked under all these luscious layers - with lace and dies. Definitely will be a treasure in some Mommy's baby book. Love those papers too. Always enjoy the crystal sharp photos of the critters in your area, and that's some sparkling ice on those leaves. What an amazing photographer you are, and I especially enjoyed those personality plus birds! TFS

  32. Very sweet teddy bears and you have given this paper design a winning card. Perfect for a new addition to the family or a gender reveal party. Lovely tags and layers and beautifully beautiful design. That macro shot is the bees knees!!! How cool! You can see all of the little hairs and coarseness. Awesome sauce! Hugz to you muffin! ~Doc

  33. I adore Theodore and Bella on your card - so, so sweet - and the white shabby matting under each layer is so clever to make everything pop. A fabulous macro today, and I love the cute twin making eyes at the camera. Fabulous bird shots too!

  37. Well, I really don't know which to gush over...your sweet baby birthday card or those fantastic shots! Your card is adorable, and my hat is off to you to using those papers! I see something cute, and I just don't know what to do with it! But I love your design and the little white teddy, the stick pins, and the die cut frame really are the perfect embellishments!

    Love every one of your bird shots and of course, I adore the squirrels and your silly captions that really bring these guys to life! Great landscape and macro shot! I guess those little furballs keep themselves warm over the winter; I know I would if I had a fur coat like that! Sending hugs, my talented friend!

  39. Of all of your Pion collections this has to be my favourite. I am sure you have worked out by now that I just love Teddy Bears and all types of soft toys, but especially rabbits, and these papers are just purfect in my opinion. You have created a couple of stunning cards with these papers, I just adore them. This one is gorgeous with all of the little toys peacking through the foliage.

    Wonderful nature shots again today, how gorgeous are those leaves with the ice dripping from them and your adorale squirrel family, who could pick a favourite (OK, OK so Bon Jovi was my favourite, but we are not going to go there).
