It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!







We are still waiting for our first snowfall this winter. I am hoping we will have some for Christmas. I know my grand kids would love to play in it. I chose to use non-traditional colors on this Christmas card. Some pretty sparkly rhinestones add the bling to this card. The little bird stamp was  a freebie that was included in a stamp order. I don't remember from whom but it is so cute that I like to use it often. I thought it was perfect with this cute image. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: Snow Bird (Anne Murray)
Beneath this snowy mantle cold and clean
The unborn grass lies waiting for its coat to turn to green
The snowbird sings the song he always sings
And speaks to me of flowers that will bloom again in spring
When I was young my heart was young then, too
Anything that it would tell me, that's the thing that I would do
But now I feel such emptiness within
For the thing that I want most in life's the thing that I can't win
Spread your tiny wings and fly away
And take the snow back with you
Where it came from on that day
The one I love forever is untrue
And if I could you know that I would
Fly away with you

Such a cute image and as always your coloring just is amazing. I know practice makes perfect, but I'll never be able to color like that!
