One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Merry Monday # 182 ~ Any kind of bird

Kathy has a cute picture of a bird for our inspiration and you can use any kind of bird!
Of course when I think Christmas, I think Cardinal...I suppose because it is red!
I am still playing with watercolor paints!  Hope you aren't too bored by that!
And of course there is my red cardinal!!
Here is the inspiration photo:
Now that we are within 25 days of Christmas, we hope you are joining us each week to get those cards done.  Please check out the cards from the design team!
Stamps:  Paper Smooches:  Warm Hearts, Winnie & Walter Holiday Trimmings (from Stamp of Approval)
watercolor inks, white embossing powder

Thanks for visiting!
