Windowbox Wishes

We have a pair of cardinals who live near my kitchen window. It's so enjoyable to watch them at the bird feeder and bird bath.  This card has an adorable bird and snowman image from Clear Dollar Stamps that reminds me of them.



I was inspired to use pink by Crimbo Crackers and Jingle Belles in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. Jingle Belles will make a donation to the cause for every card entered. You should check it out. I used this basic sketch from Critter Sketch Challenge #136:

This card is adorable, love watching birds at having a feed, we do not have much snow where I live South Africa, otherwise it would be lovely to have a snowman as well. xx
