Snow Covered Bird Feeder


I bet this is how some of your bird feeders are looking in this snowy, icy weather. I've made my card with some snow and icy goodness. Brrrrrr.........

I am using a Heartfelt Creations stamp set, Cardinal Bird Feeder. Yep, it is from my sister and she gave it to me a while ago. I just love it and can't believe I haven't used it yet. This set has a die cut but I don't have it so I hand cut the image and popped it on. The sentiment is from the same set.

I played in the Ways to Use It challenge WT461 on SCS. The theme was Let it Snow.

I'm entering my card here:

This icy/snowy look is wonderful on this card. I use to say I wish I could see ice/snow around here, but after this week I am done with ice!!! Frozen pipes at work and home cured me of that fast! Your card is beautiful. Some great colors, super layout, and beautiful image! Hugz!

Beautiful execution of this wonderful cardinal image, Brenda!! I laughed about you fussy-cutting your image. How quickly we get used to all these die-cuts, so much that we don't even remember that we can cut something with those old-fashioned things called scissors! Good for you!! Hugs, Darnell

cute image, Benzi, and such a darling way of showing off Mother Nature's cardinal's plumage compared to the rest of the manmade "stuff". I cannot believe how nicely "fussy cut" your image is, Benz - I would love to cut so cleanly! hugs, de

Beautiful shimmer on the snow-topped bird feeder, Benzi! THis looks like our area LAST week, when it was five degrees. Today, it was 50. Goofy!
