Typically I don't purchase many holiday stamp sets. However being a demonstrator this year I did. Being the frugal person that I am, I've been trying to use these sets for other occasions.
I have a special fondness for cardinals. Their bright red color just stands out among the starkness of winter's lack of foliage. Plus moving from Virginia to Tennessee they have significant meaning.
In our TN home we have a couple that frequents our bird feeder. The girl is especially beautiful in her muted browns and orange. She inspired the card below.
I recently refilled the feeder and she is back. I'm hoping to capture a picture of her but she seems to be a bit more skittish than the other birds.
