Snowbirds Welcome!

Good morning! As promised, I have another card that I created this weekend to show you. I can't believe that I made 2 cards in one weekend after that long card-drought! I was beginning to think that my mojo was gone forever! Instead, I am rejuvenated and on a roll! I pray that it lasts awhile.

Even though Christmas is over, we're getting lots and lots of snow here in Maryland, this winter. It is an abnormality in Maryland to get so started the first weekend in December...and then we got 2 feet just in time for Christmas! That was really a once-in-a-blue-moon snow. So, with snow all around, I decided that we can still enjoy snowmen! Before I forget I want to thank my friend Joyce Casaldi, for the pretty transparent sparkly ribbon that she sent to me for my birthday last month...I have teamed it with the Michael's Pink Satin Ribbon on this card.

This snowman is called "Hamilton" from Whipper Snapper. I just loved the little bird standing on his head and the birdhouse hanging on his twig arm! The punched wavy, side border and the punched wavy, sentiment border was made using my new EK Success Dotted Wavy Border Punch. They are really coming out with some really neat border punches! Okay, here's the deets:
