When Snow Falls, Nature Listens card

 






If you've been following my blog, it's no surprise to you that I love bunnies.  My wild bunnies are well fed and I scare off neighborhood cats that try to visit.  I had another of the birch tree dies from Simon Says Stamp so I combined it with some sweet bunnies from Stampendous!

Sending Heartfelt Wishes card




Here's another of those adorable stamps from Polka Doodles.  I went for non-traditional colors again and used a couple of my favorites.  My Christmas tree is going to be decorated with bunnies this year.  I have a bunch of Hallmark Marjolein Bastin ornaments that it's time they appear again.

Longing To See You card




Sometimes when you start coloring a card you have a favorite spot and a not so favorite.  I started off with the poinsettia (the plant itself, I waited a bit on the pot) and the last part was the curtains which I dreaded.  I ended up loving the curtains.  I just pulled out some never used Copics and went to work on them.  I wouldn't mind having them because they'd fit in perfectly with my colors in my home.  There are times at Christmas that when you look out the window, all you see is snow and you are not going anywhere.  I've celebrated Christmas early or a month late depending on the weather up here in the northern plains.
