Today I have another Christmas card designed using the new Pion Design collection "The Night Before Christmas". I just love how you can do any style with these papers, from shabby to vintage to elegant!

I used two different ornament dies on this card, but I have no idea what brand they are. For some reason, I forgot to label them, so if anyone know, shout them out please! The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, everything else is from my stash.
So we got our snow dumping as predicted. Oh boy, I was jumping for joy and ended up spending about 5 hours outside in the wind and snow. I was frozen stiff by the time I got home, but it was totally worth it!!
For my landscape photo today, a little trick of the eye. What looks like a field of snow covered flowers, is actually the top of a line of untrimmed hedges.
For my birds today, I have this lovely female Sparrow...
a female Cardinal playing in the snow...
a lovely Seagull...
and one of many Chickadees I fed that day!
I've become completely addicted to the gorgeous male Cardinal and how he shines in the snow, so I will be including a shot of one of these beauties every post from now on!!
My squirrel friends were not quite as impressed with the snow as I was.
"Hey, you up there. I see you're very busy, but can you toss me a peanut please. I'm freezing my paws off down here!
"I suppose you think this is funny!!"
"No way I'm coming down there lady! In case you haven't noticed, the ground is covered in snow!!"
I didn't get any new macro shots because it was just too windy, and for a successful macro shot, you need no movement whatsoever. I still have some back ups, so I will share those for this week. Some ice crystals on a leaf.
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.
