Winter birds...
















Hi there...Cherry here with a quick post.  Just got home from a basketball game and I am feeling lousy...so I am just popping in to share two cards.  The first card was created for TRC.   I used the winter bird  stamp.  I wanted a soft look so I stamped it in khaki ink and left it silhouette style.   No coloring.   I think it will make a lovely winter greeting for someone special.  The second card I made just because.  I have had a bit of fun creating cards lately with a Winter theme.  It is always nice to have something to cheer someone up after the holidays when the Winter blahs can really take hold.  Loving the greys, soft blues that can be used for this.  Of course I always love birds.  Never tire of them.  Well this old body needs sleep.  Thanks for visiting me and always letting me share with you.   cherry
