Happy weekend

Hi Everybody!

I'm wishing you all a happy weekend a little bit earlier than normal as I want to take a few days off to see to things in real life, like plantimg flowers, tidying  and cleaning etc. I'll be back on Monday.

Today I have a hybrid piece made up with photos, a painted background, digital elements and an image from Gecko Galz, all digitally assembled. I am linking to Matilde's birds  challenge at AJJ:



Some photos from yesterday's walk:









And a funny for you. The text means 'I discovered this new bird species in front of my window':


Have a great weekend, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  2. I am loving this latest art piece. It has so much depth and interesting things to look at. It is a beautiful piece for Matilde's challenge, and beautiful even if it wasn't for a challenge. Have a great few days away from the computer. I think we need to all check out sometimes. "See" you next week. Hugs-Erika

  8. There is a bird here called a Grey Catbird, so perhaps you have discovered its European cousin, Valerie. Enjoy your weekend coming up. Short comment today. We are a little late getting going so have to be out the door! Hugs and kisses, Davud

  9. Cats will find anything to sit in but never seen them in a nest before. Loving the lady, gorgeous work Valerie and the layering just works so well. Pleased you appreciated the value of my filter bugs. It's fun watching them as they wonder around the matting eating up all the fish poo! I actually think they are quite cute and they are obviously very happy building up their massive family Lol! They do a brilliant job. Have a lovely weekend. Hugs, Angela xXx

Glad you are taking time out for yourself and to get on top of things, I'm in need of getting jobs done of my own done this weekend as I've been away at my MIL's packing and recycling as we count down the weeks before her move..
