Hi everyone!  As I sat here today at looking outside all I could think of was the snow storm that we were in the midst of.  The ice is the worst part and thank goodness it's almost over.  While I was looking outside I happened to see a cardinal sitting on a tree branch.  I also saw animal tracks through my back yard going into my neighbor's yard, I think they were rabbit tracks and so that was the inspiration for today's card.

I started my card by first stamping the tree image and then I proceeded to stamp the snowflakes.  Some of my snowflakes are stamped lighter by inking up my snowflake stamp and then stamping off onto a scrap piece of paper and then stamping the snowflake image onto the tree.  Next, I added the red bird (be sure to use your stamp-a-ma-jig to help align the images better).

To create my snow along the bottom I simply took a scrap piece of card stock and I tore it along the edges.  Then I went along the edges using my 2 way glue pen and I lightly dusted on some dazzling diamonds glitter.  I did that for both layers of snow and then once they dried I adhered them to my card.

I stamped the deer and bunny images onto another piece of card stock and then I cut them out and placed them on my card using a dimensional behind their heads and their feet are tucked down behind the snow.

I punched the top part of my chocolate chip card stock layer using my scallop trim border punch and finally I decided my card still needed a little something and so I decided to add a small bow in the upper right corner.

Well, that's about it for today.  I hope you liked my card, it was hard to get a nicer photograph, but it's really glittery in person.  Stay warm and be safe in this ice storm!  See you tomorrow!
