 Hello everyone,

Friday evening here while typing this post and what a great day I had, it started off rough then things just fell into place, saved a baby girl, told next door to watch their kid and turn the damn music down and they did, and then my day was awesome..

I die cut most of the afternoon, very untraditional flowers, just to see, and I think they are going to be really nice.

But tonight...birds..

red Cardinals, berries, pine branches, red embossing ink, and kraft..

These backgrounds nearly took a nosedive into the trash as my white inking,
well, I got carried away..
But after a good splattering with white ink as well, they turned out okay.

Then the bases were made, and we were off ..

No I didn't, his tail is all over the sentiment..

But I went with it, no turning back, 
Too many ideas floating through my head.

Not too much dimension and loved stamping the sentiment and embossing with crackling camp fire distress enamel..

Added snowflakes and three cards in a jiffy.

Pretty little Cardinal please don't poop!!..

Thank you so much for stopping by.

I'll see you tomorrow..

Wow, sounds as if you had an eventful morning Chrissy and good thing you were around when the parents weren't watching their child! Hopefully they will be more careful (and considerate!) in future.
Stunning card, love the die cut cardinal (hope he behaves!!!) and the beautiful foliage.
And, while I'm here, thank you for joining in at Fab'n'Funky, a perfect entry for our Christmas Animals Challenge.

You are funny Chrissy, but I love the Cardinal on top of all the gorgeous elements that you have here. Also, you can still read the sentiment. I love this card.
