Where the Galahs Gather

Hi Everyone!  Its another warm Summers Day here today, perfect weather for doing the washing but a bit too warm to be doing other chores....well that's my excuse anyway.  So I got the washing on early and then hit the craft room to create some of my February Projects for one of my Swap Groups one of which I am sharing today.

The first one had to be a ATC featuring a Bird.  My swap partner this month loves Pastel Colors so I immediately thought of a Galah.



Supplies:  
Pale Blue Cardstock, Leaf Embossing Folder, SU Bird Punch, Faber Castell Gelatos in Pink, Green and Blue tones.  Washi Tape, Paper Cord, Feather, Pearls, Eyelet Border Punch, Galah Postage Stamp, Galah Collage Image.

I took further inspiration for my ATC by the group of Galah's that frequent our Garden and feed in the bird feeder we have placed in one of the Poinciana Trees.   As I took this photo and glanced from my bedroom window there were about ten of them and a couple of rainbow lorikeets feeding beneath the tree.  The bird life is one of the many reasons I love living out of town.
