Hi Everyone,

Welcome back! Is it cold in you neck of the woods? It’s going to be freezing here tonight…..strange for Florida. It’s brrrrrr outside.

My little Cardinal looks cold too sitting in that Pine!

Beautiful card Lee! We're freezing in Atlanta too, so our little birds look just like this. :) The gold touches are just perfect on your pretty holiday card.
