May Die Release Blog Launch / Hummingbird

Hello bloggers!  It's time for the May Die Release Blog Launch!  Since I already have owls, robins, flamingoes and peacocks, I thought I might add a few more varieties of birds to the collection!  As always we will be giving away a set of each of the  dies in this collection (there are twelve of them) to some lucky winners that are chosen from the comments left of each of the posts.  I ask that you make your name memorable in some way so there is no confusion as to whose name was drawn from those left on the comments.  Please add your last name or initial or the city where you live or just come up with a funny alias, anything to distinguish you from someone else that might share the same name.  I will be doing the drawings on May 24th and posting the list of winners in the afternoon.  Now on to the first die set on offer.  Introducing the Hummingbirds.  There are five dies in this set, with two hummingbirds facing each other, two sentiments and a lovely flower.  This set will be perfect for any recipient that loves seeing the hummingbirds come visit their garden every spring!  Don't forget to leave your comment on this post and I will see you back here at noon for the next die set to be revealed.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue - been meaning to tell you I've just finished cataloging my Dies/stamps by you - 89 so far! (which includes sets of more than one die like the safari collection - my favourite)
So, by definition, I love the new release(s) automatically.
Hope you are well.
Love

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, oh you caught me unawares today, I didn't realise the new release was coming out. What a brilliant die set to start with, I think the hummingbirds are so pretty and clever to be able to hover in one place and get all the nectar out of the flowers with their amazing beaks and you have captured that brilliantly with this set, truly amazing. Good luck everyone.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Hi Sue

Hi Sue. What a lovely start to this launch. What better way of adding a tropical feel to a project than with the addition of a humming bird. Love the sprig that comes with the birds too.

Hi Sue, a beautiful card. I love Hummingbirds but doubt I will ever see one in real life, only on TV nature programmes or YouTube clips. They are fascinating tiny birds and I think you have captured them beautifully.

CCM said...

What a beautiful card to start the May launch ! I love hummingbirds. They are beautiful and fascinating birds, only them can fly backwards. The little hummingbirds on your card remind me of the Cuban emerald, a species of hummingbird. So beautiful.

Love this set. Good luck everyone.


Hugs from Toronto to you all.
Stay safe and healthy.

I miss seeing hummingbirds in our yard for the last couple of years. They're always so pretty and delicate as they hover over the garden.
