Snow Birds

Last night we went on a special river boat cruise in Montgomery along the Alabama River. The cruise was featuring a play called "Frankly, Scarlet You are Dead." Two of our friends starred in the play and another was helping behind the scenes, and 11 of our family and friends sat together - it was so fun! We don't go out much so I especially enjoyed it.

At Splitcoast Stampers mr33634 (Marion) is the Featured Stamper and I cased THIS card. My image is from Cheryl Alger (Sassy Cheryl) and is called Backyard Vacation. I made the image work for Winter by adding some snow and snowflakes (my snowflakes are from a Sizzix Tim Holtz Die and a small ornament available at Hobby Lobby). I am entering this card in the Sassy Cheryl challenge for this week which is Fav Holiday colors.


Hugz!
