WINTERY WEDNESDAY

Well, we were part of the big snow storm last night and today.  It wasn't as bad as it could have been, but I always like one big snow so I was o.k. with all of it.

Even though I didn't come up with an idea from the flower show to spur me on to a card, the show was great.  It was a Holland theme and I had a great time.

The snow today and one of the pictures I took of birds around my birdfeeder did inspire me to make today's card.



The real photograph is of a Fox Sparrow.  They are so pretty and one of the largest sparrows.  They come through here around this time and stay for a little while before moving on.
I tried to make my bird look like the real one, but there is really no comparison.  You can't really duplicate Mother Nature.
I used the Best Birds Stamp Set and Thinlits.  I stamped the bird on watercolor paper so I could color with ink and the Blender Pen.  The background square is from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and then I cut out and stamped on one of the plain square framelits.  I put some White Gel Pen ink on the branch to replicate the snow.
Hope someone comes to dig out our driveway tomorrow so I can get to appointments.
Have a great day.
