In my last post I mentioned seeing lots of Goldfinches at my bird feeder. Well just last week I saw a Goldfinch AND and an Indigo Bunting on the feeder at the same time. It looked like a tropical rainforest with all those bright colors! There’s a little wooded area with a creek near the end of our road and that’s where the Indigo Buntings hang out. I don’t know if they like the shade, the water, or the water bugs, but it’s always a treat to see them flit by. Here’s a picture of an Indigo Bunting in case you’ve never seen one – I hadn’t before a few years ago.
I love it when stampers get creative with our stamps. Color a Coneflower yellow and it becomes a Sunflower. Put a snowman in front of a summer porch, add some white gel pen to the bushes and you have a winter scene. Kathie Bailey simply colored our new little Goldfinch blue instead of yellow and viola! He’s an Indigo Bunting! Kathie used our new Goldfinch 1219G and Quick Note Vertical 251D to create the outside of her note pad.
