Winter Welcome


Now that everyone (or at least almost everyone) is in the middle of summer with the temperatures hovering around 90 to 100 degrees, I thought a "cool" looking Christmas card was in order. Is that why they call it Christmas in July - everyone just hoping for some cooler weather!!!

This is somewhat a CASE from Karen over at Feline Creative. I used a bird on my card, as she did, but turned it horizontally instead of using it in the vertical position. She has a fabulous blue bird on hers and I decided to use the cardinal. The stamp I used is from Rubber Stampede and reminds me alot of the image that SU has. I added some glitter to the branches to give it the effect of ice/snow/cold weather. The white panels are embossed with the Snowflakes embossing folder.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.......stay inside and turn up the AC and it'll feel like winter!!

Thanks to everyone on my last post.....and no, I'm NOT going to tell the story of the wine. Let's just say it was not pretty by any means. I will tell you this though....Don't EVER dance on top of a table with a dress on!!! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by..........
