BSS IDEA - Somebunny Loves You

WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF IDEA.

Looks like Spring has sprung!!  
Seems like the birds returned early this year and there
are so many of them around.
Saw a pair of Robins a week ago during a morning
snow shower, I bet they were wondering what the heck
brought them back from the South so soon!!

Even our pond ice melted and the fish came out of hiding
and surfaced.  Now to watch for Herons!  Suppose we will
have to put the net over the pond again this year, because
once they know where to find fish, they return every year.
You would think that since we live close to the Niagara
River, they would have plenty of bigger fish to feast on.

and seeing all the things you have collected over the years.

Bio.
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.  This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

Many thanks to our generous sponsors,Simon Says Stamp
 and Di's Digi Stamps  for their continued support.
