This card was made for a very special friend's birthday Jan 13 (Happy birthday Cindy!) Cindy feeds the birds and has multitudes of birds visiting her yard every day! I made this card with this beautiful chickadee which I credit Ann Fitzgerald's a fellow Stampin'Up! demonstrator tutorial that you can check out here  Thank you Ann for a complete tutorial complete with templates using the build a bird punch.  I love Chickadees as they are always in the Wisconsin Northwoods in the winter.  They stick it out with us humans. They always make me smile! "Hidy Ho Deb!" her signature start to her tutorial videos.  :)

 My brother, Matt and Pam had an anniversary to celebrate Dec 6.  Their wedding was a beautiful Christmas wedding with emerald green bridesmaids dresses and all the Christmas decorations in the church.  Absolutely stunning.  This card was inspired by Deb Valder another fellow Stampin'Up! demonstrator.  Deb is one of my favorite demos and her tutorials are so easy to find.  Thank you Deb for letting us CASE (copy and share everything) from your wonderful tutorials and tips.  Her tutorial is here
 My little sister slipped on some ice in the wee hours of New Years 2015 and broke her wrist.  I wanted to make a special card to cheer her up.  I'm sorry I can't credit the stamper who inspired this card but I changed it up almost completely except the owl and broken wing. I learned of Shirley's injury by her husband, John's facebook post entitled "Momma's got a broken wing" so I thought this card was perfect for her!
