Less is More Challenge - Week 19 - In the Frame

Good Morning from the Loire. A mix week weather wise but today is gorgeous sunshine. Our family of Black Redstarts have finally flown and now we are waiting for the House Sparrow family to go having taken up residence in the blue tits box. Its an old log the woodpeckers had made a hole in. Robin (my husband) cut it into sections and made a lid and a bottom. The blue tits nested there last year and also this year so its being well used. Perhaps we should put a "To Let" sign on it.
My entry for this week was generated on the computer. Its actually a font frame I downloaded called Darrian Frames. This is the letter M. I made it larger in Word then copy and pasted it into publisher and sized it to fit the page. I printed it onto watercoloured card and used my watercoloured pens to colour in. Very simply but I like it.

Have a good day.
