Hi everyone! Well, even though it is still spring here in Australia we are experiencing some very hot weather at the moment. Our top today is expected to get to 34 degrees celcius. Blah! I'm writing this post while sitting in front of a fan trying not to melt!
I am a very proud blogger today as it marks ATCAS' 2nd birthday! Wow, where has the time gone? I am so grateful to my DT for all their support and inspiration and also all the followers of ATCAS. Thank you!!

Here is my DT card -
I used a small Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangle die to mount my gold embossed ornament (from SU Delight Ornaments set). The sentiment is also gold embossed and from the SU Greetings of the Season set. Oh! I scored the lines first :)

And lastly I thought I would share with you some photos of my daily visitors -
First up are a pair of beautiful Rainbow Lorikeets -
Next is a Cockatoo. These birds are sitting on a structure that we made for them which includes a bird feeder.
Last but not least are my little resident ducks. They really appreciate the old boat that we have filled with water. Water is a little hard to find at the moment as we are in desperate need of rain.
At the time of taking this photo there were about 8 cockatoos, 10 ducks and the pair of lorikeets.
Thanks so much for looking xx
