Hi, So late with today's post, worked in the yard this afternoon. Since the Heron's visits, we are trying to rethink how to protect fish if we restock the pond. I've ordered a contraption that is motion sensitive and makes a noise and sends out three bursts of water to scare them. Someone has recommended this and says it works. We bought some PVC pipe to lay on the bottom of the pond so they have somewhere to go to hide. Right now, five small fish have survived somehow and are laying on the bottom of the pond. We did coax them to the top today with food, but for just a minute. They used to swim around freely and you always saw them out the window. Now until the sprinkler thingy comes, we are covering the pond when we aren't out there. Amazing
the havoc that one really large bird can cause!!!!
Today's card is another stamp from Loralie Art Stamps.
Is she too fun or what. They are all fun. The saying is from Inky Antics. I colored her with Copic Markers.

Tomorrow is the drawing for the May Giveaway.

Just a reminder, I have been so lucky to be chosen to be on the Design Team for House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. My first entry will be Monday, May 24th. We (that sounds so nice) are having the first ever blog hop for this challenge and many of the design team members will be offering blog candy on their individual blogs, and on the challenge blog there will also be a wonderful blog candy prize. So don't forget to make a card for the challenge and join us in the blog hop, it's going to be so much fun!! There is a link to the Challenge on my right side bar.

Thanks for stopping by. Until later..............
