Bluebird or Sparrow?

Which is your favourite? In not so sunny Macclesfield, there's a distinct shortage of Bluebirds, but a veritable GLUT of Sparrows! They are quite cute though so I don't mind. It's still fascinating to watch them dive onto the fat balls and seeds on the doodad in the garden.
Well,  I've just got my latest Peachy Keen stamps and fabulous they are too! I couldn't WAIT for these to arrive and play with them. OK, it's meant to be a bluebird, but I wanted a sparrow too,  (in honour of the Macclesfield avian residents). LOL

This little Fella is from the set PK-267 Happy Bird and Phrases.

And my gorgeous Macclesfield Sparrow from the set....................... PK-268 Happy Mother's Day.

Here's a close-up of one of the circle stamps. Isn't it pretty! It fits perfectly with the Nestie circles.

  Whether you love Bluebirds or Sparrows, I'm sure you'll love these fabulous sets from Peachy Keen!
(There's a promotion on too. Check it out HERE)!

Oh how great it is to be back creating properly again. I LOVE it!
Thanks for calling by
