 Hello everyone,

Well after the marathon of giggling snowmen I need some quiet time and nothing nicer than birds..

So, I die cut some birds in different shades of red and made some Christmas cards with non traditional birds..

Lovely little die and so easy to put together..
two shades of red and a brown wing..

Got berry branches ready,
 left them white and added red Nuvo drops for berries..

1,2,3, steps and fir branches were done..

Kraft PAPER, I cannot read and thought it was card stock!!

But it stamped and embossed alright, so will gradually use it up.

Made sure that birdie would fit on top of sentiment after making my cluster.

Clusters ready..

Then used a sponge dauber and did this for snow..


Needed splatter..

now those were done.. time to add the bird and foliage cluster..

So getting ready for that.. some snowflakes were scatter around..

And not too dimensional, they still fit in standard envelope and go in flat..

So, that was eventful and fun, then I found these in my stash all printed out, from last year I think and decided to set myself a challenge..

My challenge to myself is colour these 10 cards and keep them as one layer..

Can I do it, can I, can I ..we will see..

Thank you so much for stopping by and also for wishing Tyla a Happy Birthday in yesterday's post,, he was so chuffed..

The birds - branches - greenery -! Everything is perfect! Love the way you added the birds wing in a different color than the red. Makes them stand out so pretty.

Oh my I may like these even better than the blue ones, I like his wing being Kraft, love the greenery arrangement with him, and the look of a frosty background is so pretty with it!
