Oh, Sallie, this is so sweet. Everytime I see a Cardinal I think of my dear sweet Aunt, who I miss to this day. This was her favorite bird. And I love the distressed wood grain bg. Exquisite Christmas card, beautiful coloring.

This is magnificent Sallie!!! Gorgeous!!! The cardinal is one of my favorite birds, and it shows up so nicely in the snow. It is so nice to see you back in the gallery again. I really miss you and your work.

This looks like one of the cardinals I love to see when we're having a snow storm and you're stuck inside. Sallie, you are a master when it comes to coloring and wielding that toothbrush to get just the right snowy effect. Fabulous bg and distressing...
