Red is my favorite Christmas color, and I love cardinals. As I worked on this card, I thought of my mom who would begin decorating the house the day after Thanksgiving with many accents of red, culminating on Christmas day. I think she would have enjoyed this beautiful image from the Cardinal Ornament set. I sure miss her but am reminded that because of the birth (and death) of Christ, I will see her again. Such a wonderful reminder of what our Savior Jesus came to do for us.

Oh, Cheryl, this is just beautiful. Even more so because it brings your mom close to your heart. I will be decorating a small tabletop tree when I get to my step-dad's house and I always put a bird ornament on it in memory of my mom, who loved birds.
