Hello Everyone!

Thank you so much to everyone for all of your comments and condolences regarding my beautiful Bon Jovi. It really means more to me than I can say! I've still not been back out to The Shire yet, but I have lots of photos I can share with you mean time. Thanks again for all of your support!

OK, it's time for another video and another fun Christmas card using the new Pion Design collection "Greetings From the North Pole".

"Winter is an etching, spring a watercolour, summer an oil painting, and autumn a mosaic of them all." Stanley Horowitz

A Blue Jay

A male Cardinal. This shot was taken just as the sun was coming up over the horizon. He seemed to be enjoying the warmth of the sunlight.

Is it just me, or do you not wanna reach out and hug this sweet creature! Dang!

"I am cute and tiny, and you will feed me because... well, I'm cute and tiny!"

"OK, everything looks good, smells good. I don't think it's a trick, I'm going for it!"

Ran across ROCKY one day. It was very cool that he recognized me and came running up to me for a treat. Of course I gave him a couple!!

My macro for the day. I don't usually find cobwebs to be pretty, but this one just seemed to be glowing in the morning sun.

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.


  1. Your card is just so beautiful. I love the rabbit looking into the gorgeous winter scene and the little framed image of the pine cones looks fabulous. Everything works together so beautifully. Such wonderful photographs too. Wishing you a lovely weekend. Happy crafting, Sandra x

  2. It's another totally delightful creation Pamellia and so nice how your love of wildlife has crept onto you card with the bunny.

    Have a lovely weekend,

  3. Completely fabulous Pamellia and another wonderful video! Those frosted blue berries look so cool!! The photos like always are a joy!! Thanks so much for sharing your skills with us all!

  4. Stunning card and love that it has room for a rabbit which I don't usually think of at Christmas.

    The photographs are wonderful and the one of the real rabbit is amazing. Had to fetch Vic to look at all the photos today they are so special.

    Love Chrissie xx

  5. Gorgeous card, that bunny is so cute. Lovely photos, too, love the blue-jay with punk hair cut! Hugs, Valerie

  6. What a beautiful start of my day visiting your amazing blog, Pamellia! I am always over the moon happy to see a new blog post from you! Your card is a feast for the eyes with those fabulous frosted blue berries! Oooooh, I just adore that little bunny winter scene and your flower with a bow is brilliant! A spectacular card, as usual, my friend!
    Your stunning photos have melted my heart! What a joy! Your web macro is magically beautiful, my friend! Thank you so much for another portion of beauty!

  9. Love the papers, love the video and absolutely adore your fabulous card, it truly is a stunner!

    The picture of the Blue Jay and Cardinal are incredible, of course I love the bunny, who would not want to cuddle that little sweetheart? The macro is fabulous - even for a cobweb - there is beauty everywhere, I guess we just have to look for it! Hugs, Anne xxx

  10. Hi Pamellia your festive creation is mouthwateringly beautiful, full of all the wonderful things that make the Winter season so enchanting, the bunny image, the card shape, colours and embellishments are outstanding as always. I am so very sorry to hear about the loss of Bon Jovi, why MAN has to be so destructive is beyond me their greed has caused this wonderful planet so much pain, not to dwell on this but to enjoy the beauty and magic your pictures bring, please keep sharing so we can be transported into a more beautiful, peaceful world of nature.

  11. Gorgeous Pamellia, love the shape of your card.
    Hugs, Veerle

  12. Beautiful card Pamellia!! Great video!!
    Hugs :) Max

  13. Hi, Pamellia! Just popped over from your YouTube Channel. Left a little love over there. Just in case you don't visit, though, I'll leave some here, too! Your fussy cutting around the dies to make more layers is really perfect! I enjoy doing that in my designs, too, and it's actually not bothering me when I make a jagged cut anymore. Maybe I'm learning to accept myself a little better when it comes to limitations?

    Love the micro beads on the berries - great tip which I hope to remember! B

    Your winter scape is so peaceful! Sigh. I would enjoy it momentarily, but my thin southern blood would require I come back home soon LOL

    Of today's photos, your macro is most mesmerizing. Actually, as long as the webs are not on my porches or in the house LOL, I enjoy their intricacies. Tiny creatures amass during the cooler months and create micro webbings all over the grass and pasture. On dewey mornings or even frosty mornings, you can look out over the pasture and see thousands of tiny, glistening masterpieces strung from blade to blade. They are marvels. I'm not so happy walking through the "high rise" builders and have learned to blaze a trail with arms outstretched most mornings. Still, the glistening beauties are pretty incredible!

    Sending hugs! xo

  14. Oh my goodness, what an amazing card! So stunningly beautiful, I LOVE the frosty blue colour and how cute is that bunny? Pion certainly make so extraordinary papers and your microbead covered berries are a great tip.

    I am always astounded at how steady your hand is, my free hand cutting never looks that neat and I gave up trying to cut around dies, but your results look so good I am tempted to try again.

    The look you have captured on the little Blue Jays face is so sweet and would you believe I actually had a 'toy' bunny I bought from Harrods which actually looked just like that little guy.

    Have a great weekend.

  15. Seems I have missed a lot :( Glad I could make it today to see this beautiful wintery beauty ! Loved the shape a lot :)

  16. Your card today is simply breathtaking! Love everything about it...the poised rabbit, beautiful colours and flowers and that amazing bow. I like the shape too, and the way you've tucked the diecut between the layers.
    Wonderful bird and animal photos and the cobweb is magical!
    Hope your weekend is good.

  17. I saw this gorgeous card on the Pion blog the other day. Love it! I always enjoy your videos so much as well. Your photos are fantastic. Wonderful details!

    Your photos are wonderful, really great, and the adorable birdies have amazed me!
    Me and you are so different, Pamellia. I would go to The Shire any day, to be a keeper, a guardian... but I understand you, my dear friend. Hope that you find quickly the courage to come there again, they are waiting for you, sweet lady.

  24. Oh wow, what an absolutely stunning card!! I am happy dancing that there is a video!! I can't wait to see how you put this together!! The papers are beautiful and as always, you showcase them perfectly!! The bunny is so sweet!! I love the details you added and the shape, too!! This is truly a work of art!! I love, love it!!

    Your photos are jaw-dropping!! The first one with the leaves should be framed!! The birds are spectacular!! I do just want to just reach out and hug that sweet bunny!! You've captured him so beautifully!! As always, your squirrel babies make me smile :) And what a gorgeous macro!! They are all amazing my friend!! You photos are so professional!! I hope you are able to go back the Shire's such a shame some horrible person had to take that happiness away from you. Happy Saturday, Pamellia!! Have a great weekend my sweet friend!! Big hugs :)

    Wonderful woodland photos of your furry friends. I'm so sorry to read about the sad end to beautiful Bon Jovi's story. Such cruelty is incomprehensible but she will live forever thanks to your fabulous photography and generous sharing. I can understand your reasons, but, please don't abandon The Shire. You spread the love for these humble creatures throughout the world xx

Please consider an online class (though I love getting this for free, I would also love watching your process in more detail).

I adore all the pictures of your lovely friends.... and I am still pushing for a children's book with your lovely work and photos :-) xxx Lynn

  39. Bubbles, I am so glad to be back to your blog and reading about your wonderful time with the fur babies. Thank you so very much for the support and friendship throughout this last month, it means a lot. Now, this design is another stunning creation and I am so stoked to see a video!!!! Gorgeous use of those locket papers and the layers. You make me swoon for the layers you add to your designs. Wowzers and amazeballs! Give all the babies hugs for me dearie. Thank you again! Hugz to you muffin!~Doc

  40. Pamellia, what a treat it was for me to watch your video this morning! I actually felt like I was getting to be a butterfly on your craft room wall! This is my favorite winter card this year (until the next one, of course!), and you have added such lovely details with the snowflakes, the hand crafted berries, the handmade embellishment,lace and bow! My favorite little detail that so many would not think to add is that post stamping at the top of the sweet bunny panel. Love, love, LOVE this and your video was eye candy and made my day! Exceptional photography !Sending warm hugs!
