Cardinal in the Snow

I had a fantastic Thanksgiving.  My extended family in on vacation and I had a crafting marathon.  I don't remember the last time I've indulged like that.  I got six of these pretty little cardinals coloured and you're going to get to see them in action over the next few days.  Loved the simplicity of this card.  I need to do more white cards.  The image is from MFP's Christmas Cardinals and I admit I use this one a lot.

Charisma Cards - Animals
Christmas Stamping All Year Long - Simple Christmas with No Embellishments
Craft Room Challenge - Feathered Friends
