I'm sharing another Christmas card today featuring the oh so gorgeous Pion Design Christmas collection 'GREETINGS FROM THE NORTH POLE'. I just love the soft winter scenes and snowflake designs of this collection and I'm sure you will too!

For the ornament shaped base, I used Spellbinders Grand Circles as a template and hand drew the cap portion. I made a set out of a leftover pizza box so I can easily use this design again in the future.
The snowflakes are Cheery Lynn, The brown die is Spellbinders Lacey Circles, the Poinsettia and the Treeline die cuts are Sizzix, the wreath is Memory Box and everything else is from my stash.
To continue with our adventures of Escape from Belfountain mountain, today I'm sharing the photos of the very dodgy hike through the forest that we took after crossing the bridge. Lots of tree roots, cliffs and rickety stairs that even my hubby was nervous about using. So fun (I say that now because I survived)!! lol
There were a couple of areas that really confused me. A huge set of stairs down, and then just a few yards ahead, a huge set of stairs back up. OK folks, this is a 'conservation' area... try conserving some of those natural resources and just make a little bridge straight across! Fools!
One last root infested hill to walk down and we were finally at our destination... the river! YAY!!. Of course, you know, I'm gonna make you wait until Tuesday to see those photos. Aren't you just on the edge of your seat with anticipation! Bwahaha!!
And back on the home front, the kissy kissy couple of Starlings are back. This time up on the roof and squawking like it's going out of style! I'm wondering now if the female is just a young one?
PATRICIA says hello from the tree, where she is trying to cool off from our 105 degree weather today. Poor girl, there's not much shade in the tree since the drought caused anorexic foliage growth.
LOOK!! A new baby squirrel!! I can't believe that there are still new babies at this time of year! I love baby squirrels, but I worry that there's not enough time now for them to grow up before the snow starts falling.
Hello JUNIOR! I do hope you are enjoying your nap. It always scares me a bit when animals sleep with their eyes open. I often toss a peanut at him to make sure he's still breathing (I can't just poke him like I do with the girls). lol
Last but not least, my token morning coffee shot. This one is a little different, it wasn't the oranges and yellows that caught my attention, it was the fact that these clouds were so blue that they looked fake! Awesome!
That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. If you have any questions or interesting tidbits about today's wildlife, please let me know.
