I finally got my Christmas cards started....but this will not be a mailed one, the pine cone sticks out a mile...
I used a copper tone CS, which was almost to stiff, and then some stuff my DD sent me to make the snow, I just used a liquid glue, and sprinkled it on...the stuff flies around like feathers...lol

Jan, such a beautiful bird! That deep red screams with joy! Love the pine images in the bg, and had to giggle when I read that Wendy is sending you stamp supplies now! How delish! You got her started, and now she's enabling on her own! That "snow" she sent to delish! I love how it glistens. Beautiful work my friend. Lymi, hugs....
