We haven't had any new snow, but that's ok, I'm still riding the high from the dumping we had last weekend. I took enough shots to last the rest of the winter!!! My landscape photos today are from out on the trail leading to Lake Wabukayne.

"All this snow has me completely turned around! I need to get my head on straight!"
GET IT?!?! lol

And in the 'Bobbing-for-Peanuts' category, the gold medal goes to the male Cardinal, scoring a solid 9.0 for his full body technique!

"It is not an act of kindness to treat animals respectfully. It is an act of justice."

"I totally get that you have free peanuts lady, but here's the thing. It's cold down there!"

~Crazy Karen~
"Sshhhh, I'm in stealth mode. I'm hoping the human won't see me. She always wants me to smile for the camera!" 

"If you don't mind Ma'am, I'm gonna rest here on this stump until my fingers defrost, then I'll gladly take a peanut!"

For my macro today, I went back to November when we had our first slushy snowfall...

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.

  20. Hi Pamellia,
    oh what a grogeous and super stunning card.
    Those new papers are so pretty and wonderful, and your design is perfect too.
    Love all the wonderful work and elements in this tremendous creation.
    As usual your photos are superb and wonderfully captured.

  21. A beautiful card with the lovely new Pion papers, so well designed! Amazing photo's, you are so talented! hugs, Marlies

  22. It's always like opening a gift when I open your blog--I know there's always going to be a surprise on the inside (your photography), but the wrapping is totally beautiful (your artwork)! Your sweet baby girl card is truly lovely, and those little stuffed animals and the banners are just adorable! They remind me of the bunny that Ethan carried with him all the time as a youngster! You always add all the perfect embellishments to show off these beautiful papers and this time is no exception-love the bits of trim and lace, the pearls on the butterfly, the basket filler and doily peaking out from behind--so many precious details!

    Oh, and then there's the photography! Amazing shots you have taken of the snow--so pretty! I can almost hear the hush in the air you get with a heavy snowfall. Not likely to happen here this year again! But I get to enjoy it through your photos! As always, my favorite shot is of the chickadee having a snack from you hand! What an impressive shot of his beautiful wings! All, BEAUTIFUL, shots! Sending warm hugs! Enjoy your weekend, my friend!

  23. Oh Wow!! This is one stunning creation! So very very beautiful Pamellia! And great shots once again ... Have a lovely day!

  24. What an heirloom this card will be, I can imagine someone all grown up opening a memory box and finding this, what joy they will have. It is beautiful. Love your snow photos, the birds so close and sharp so are your squirrels, fabulous photos. We are having a really mild spell, so unusual for this time of year. We have Spring flowers and everything is shooting up, I hope a late frost won't damage them too much.
    Have a good Sunday.

  25. I am never disappointed when I come to your blog, Pamellia! Oh my gosh, how I love this beautiful card. The lace trim and bow is so pretty! I really wish I could reach in and handle the card to take in all the wonderful textures. These photos are absolutely fabulous--they belong in a book! I hope you have some showcased in your home. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  26. Simply amazing Pamelia...both your card as well as the photographs!! Have a lot of catching up on your blog

  28. A gorgeous confection of a card, Pamellia - just been admiring it over at Pion. Today's birds and squirrels are as fabulous as ever - that one with his wing spread is magical, and you've captured the squirrels' thoughts perfectly with your captions. Thanks for another lovely post.

  29. So soft, sweet and adorable baby card with these beautiful papers! Love your whole design as always, so delicate, and such lovely details with the banner and those pink materic leaves!
    I'm smiling for your photos, amazing birds!!! I'm very impressed by the birds with their wings opened, these photos would be published on some magazine!!
    So cute thinking squirrels :D they are always my favourite! :)
    I'm not feeling well, I have cough and fever... :( But here the sun shines and spring seems arrived yet

  30. My dear friend, I have been so eager to see your magic with this darling collection! It is every bit as heartwarming as I expected... your layering is delightful and your color palette sweet as a button. Your design is complete perfection, Pamellia.

  32. That macro shot is incredibly - I just wanted to reach out and touch the ice crystals! So clean and pure! Your excursion photos are fantastic, Pamellia!

    When I saw your cuddly card, I couldn't help but think, "This looks like Pamellia!" The soft teddy and sweetness, just reminds me of your critter descriptions and the love of nature you have. It's definitely the strength of "girl-ness" coming forth in a very unique way! Beautiful, my sweet friend.


  33. Oh, I have been waiting to see what you planned to do with these new papers, arn't they fabulous? I was not at all disappointed, your card is so, so pretty and just perfect. Thank you for making my day.

    Love they snowy shots, they are all amazing, I think my favourite is the chickadee (although the blue jay is so very pretty with the cardinal a close second). Perfect Pattie and Crazy Karen and both lovely but isn't Mistro cute?

    Dionne xx

  34. I never cease to be amazed how you can put all the layers together and created such a cohesive Gorgeous creation! It is absolutely beautiful. A real treasure for a keepsake :) Your critters pics are delightful as always!! It sure looks cold with all that snow. We did get some rain here and with the warm weather all is green.

  35. Beautiful card. I can't wait to travel to the store that carries these papers. I must have some of these new designs. No chance of snow for southwest Missouri the rest of the winter. One more frost scheduled for this weekend. It's been unseasonably warm here. I saw a robin today so spring must be right around the corner.
