Season of Joy


I made a CAS card - something you rarely see on this blog. Hah! I was playing with an older MFT stamp set, using the sentiment for the cards in the previous post, and found this cute little bird I'd forgotten about. I stamped him on white, colored with Copics, and die-cut with a GinaMarieDesigns stitched square. I matted with a die-cut SB scalloped square from a snippet of green lying on my table, then did a final mat with another die-cut square of red. I used a MB woodland branch to die cut a piece of branch for him to perch on. The sentiment is from a retired SU! stamp set.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges...

HLS January Christmas challenge - anything goes /optional twist - "joy"

Cards in Envy - snow bird challenge

Snippets Playground weeks 263 and 263 - must use snippets

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a happy freezin' season! Winter is here with our morning temperature of 10 degrees!!  Brrrrr!

Good Morning, Carol! As Shawn was headed out the door this morning he said...it's 9 degrees out! Yikes! I was barely awake but that put a chill thru me! Ughh, have I said that I am not much of a fan of really cold weather? This card is super adorable, Carol. Love your sweet little birdie and your CAS style card! I am finding that less layers is so much simpler and i'm loving all the white crisp space! Great card as always! TFS and stay extra warm today!

Super CAS card and if it's a style you don't usually choose I'm thinking that maybe you should do more often! Thanks for linking up with HLS Christmas Challenge.

Really sweet CAS card. I know what you mean about the CAS cards...You rarely see one of those on my blog either. (Unless you count a card where I stuck on a couple of stickers...smile)

Too cute!! I don't do CAS much either (struggle with it actually) but I have been finding myself using more an more white card bases than I ever have before. It sure is cold out!! I say if it has to be this cold we should at least have snow to go with it! As long as I can be inside looking out at it~

Gosh, I love this cheeky little guy, and he looks just perfect atop the simple squares & scallops. I'm so glad he's got the little hat covering his head too. You do CAS just as well as you do intricate & tedious too! Stay warm. TFS & Hugs

Carol, This is such a tweet little card! You really need to think about doing CAS more often... because you do it well. Thanks so much for joining our Snow Birds Challenge over at Cards in Envy. (And, on another note, I pulled up one of your OWH Sketch to use on a card this past week. Brought back more than a few memories.)
