Signs of Spring and Happy Mail

Hi everybody!
Spring is really springing here. The past 2 days have been a bit cooler, with a little rain, and that has really done the plants and flowers good. At SOARTFUL Challenge the theme is signs of spring, with shades of green and other colours.  I have made a collage of some of my photos and paintings of the past few days which I  then gave a springlike frame online, and now love it. I think I will print this one out and hang it up.


Today I discovered that my little Samsung camera has a video button,and tried it. I think I need to find the instruction booklet, as my filmed duck looks like it is on speed. Hope it is at least good for a laugh!

 

Same problem with the geese and the goslings!


I hope to soon be able to make a video which doesn't look like it has been left over from the early 1900s....

And I recently got Happy Mail. This card was sent from Diane. She sent it early, as the other cards she sent took loooooooong weeks to get here, so this one arrived in 3 days! Thanks Diane!


Christine sent me a get well card and present which was also on its way for four weeks. I think the customs are to blame, as they hold the stuff there for weeks before they put their little stamp on it and decide that it is really just a normal letter. I will have fun using all these nice embellishments, and the card she made is gorgeous. Thanks Christine!



That's all for today, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
