something to crow about


is the challenge on Awfullybigartadventure you can use a crow, blackbird, raven or rook.
Well I'm convinced these pests are always laughing at us.They are pests out here, they pester the lambs when they are just born, they steal eggs all year round .
We don't hear hem much when our youngest son is at home ( he's the one with the shotgun licence) but as soon as he's left they sit theremaking loud noises as if they are laughing at us.
This image is one of a set small stamps you get for free when you buy Hermine's Choice , a lovely book all about stamping with lots of projects in it.
This little girl canvas is having the last laugh , she's tamed a crow.

Beautiful job! I've heard that crows, when they are tame, are great pets. That little girls looks like she could ride on his back if he'd let her :) .... very cool Free stamp too!

Watching the crows in our backyard it always amazes me how they caw with their entire body, bouncing up and down with each loud screech.

Great piece you've created and that is a wonderful stamp!
