Hi Friends!

Just a quick card I wanted to share with you that I
made for a Christmas thank you card.  I decided
to create a wintery scene.  I'm beginning to wonder
if we will have a wintery scene here in NW Ohio
this year.  We have gone beyond 280 days without
snow.  And, I believe it is a new record.  I can
remember last year having had snow by now.
Oh well,  maybe we'll have some in time for

The pretty snowflakes were made using
a McGill punch.  And, the tiny red birds were
made using a Martha Stewart punch.  I added SU
dazzling details for the sparkle effect.   It's a quick
and easy card, but I like the end result.  Thanks
so much for visiting here today.  Take care, hugs!

  8. Maria, that is a very pretty thank you those snowflakes. Hope you get that snow for Christmas.

    I see you have been making some gorgeous cards while I've been away. My renovation is mostly finished. I worked all week getting things back into the cabinets. I didn't get my tile backsplash up yet. It will have to wait until after Christmas. Ugh!
    Then, a lot of painting to be done. It never ends, does it? :-)
