April.......how did it get here so fast?

Well, April has snuck in and our clocks got turned forward on Saturday night (meaning I got an extra hour of sleep this morning) although if you are reading this in the northern hemisphere, your just turning into Spring!
So, the Challenge #67 is 
To 'die' for.......   

TWIST  add a bird or two or three....

Prize - two small ones
IO Dies - Bunnies 


Cheery Lyn Dies - chicks

Easter is just around the corner for us all - lot's of scope there for projects with no stamps - and for those in Australia and New Zealand, we have ANZAC Day on the 25th. Just remember please no stamps to be used. Every month we have to disappoint some lovely crafter who has not read the rules.

Before we begin this month it would be remiss of me not to say to all those people in Southern Queensland and Northern New South Wales suffering from the flooding as an aftermath of Cyclone Debbie, and those who were battered around by the winds when she made land last week - my thoughts are with you all; stay safe, dry and stay positive.

There is also some inspiration to help you get started on your April project - please remember NO STAMPS are allowed:

The birds (swans) are part of the die cut border.


You can add your project at the linky at the bottom of this post

Before we leave...........

Our photo this week was taken by Greg Faull on his morning walk around Hobart last week
It is of the boat sheds at Cornelian Bay
This bay is directly opposite my house on the western side of the Derwent River

Greg says: Some of the most tightly held properties in Tasmania are not in an upmarket area or come with a million-dollar price tag - in fact, they are not even houses. The Cornelian Bay boatsheds have been a popular waterside feature for about a century and are some of the most hotly contested real estate going.

The first boatsheds were built in the late 1890s. Most of the 33 sheds were built between 1920 and 1930. 

People can stay there during the day but are not allowed to live in them, although overnight stays occasionally are permitted. They are subject to Heritage Guidelines re building and maintenance and they sell for over $A250,000 when and if they come onto the market......

Cute, eh....
