I guess I should thank my parents for forcing me to READ, I read every book in sight in my room hiding from a parakeet!
But in Winter, especially the wild and stormy days of winter, I do worry how these small frail creatures can survive in such conditions. Our Home in New Windsor had two Pine trees in front of the House, these were Havens for the Winter Birds. Dad had a Bird Feeder hanging near each tree and you could watch Birds while doing dishes or sitting in front of the Picture window.
Dad had Bird books and would squeal with enjoyment when a new Bird appeared!!
So it is only fitting that my Bedroom has a Huge Blue Spruce right outside the window. I hear the Birds every morning and during this past storm they were huddled in safety in this tree. SO glad I can provide them some shelter from the storm.
I used two stamp sets on this card. Christmas Pines and Best Birds. If you want a fabulous all Occasion stamp set BEST BIRDS is the one!! Birds for ALL Seasons!!
The card base is Smoky Slate. Branches stamped in Black Stazon, then water colored with Garden Green and Early Expresso. Pines stamped in Garden Green. Snow Flakes are from Christmas Pines stamped in White Craft ink.
