Chickadees and gingham card

Good afternoon friends, I have another 'Less is More'
card to share with you today.Wow it's March already,
how did that happen ??
It's a colour challenge this week over at 'LIM'
Yellow and Green
I was in a gingham mood today and decided to
 combine it with some watercolouring/drawing. 
These little chickadees have had me smiling
 for ages. I saw some similar stamps a while
 ago but thought I could paint/draw my own.
I was inspired by Elvie Studio as she had 
drawn her own too.
Sunny here today, it says 11c but it lies......
it's still so cold, the wind isn't helping either!
Our frogs have arrived back in our garden
 ponds too so Spring must be on it's way ;)
I tried to add some pics but Blogger won't
 let me hoo!

 Have a lovely weekend
whatever you have planned ;)
Come and have a closer look at my card....
