And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Birds of the Season

Hello friends!  For those in America....I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Not only do I have plenty of leftovers from our meal yesterday, but I also have lots of leftovers laying around on my craft desk.  The Ways To Use It Challenge on Splitcoaststampers yesterday was to use up some of those crafty, I put some of them to good use and finished a couple of Christmas cards featuring two birds of the season.

Creative Nugget:  My leftover scraps were turned into banners and stitched together to make the background for this Winter Chickadee.  The stamps, dies, and papers used are from Our Daily Bread Designs and include Winter Chickadee, Winter Cardinal, Holly Jolly Paper Collection, Pierced Rectangles, Double Stitched Circles, Circles, Pennant Flags and Double Stitched Pennant Flags.

Creative Nugget:  The Pine Branches, Pinecones, Pierced Oval and Snow Globe were all cut from leftovers laying an my desk. The cardinal colored with Copic Markers and greeting are both from the Winter Cardinal stamp set and the papers are from the Christmas Collection 2017.

These cards will be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful weekend!

These are such attractive cards, Cathy! I love the way you were able to combine all those leftovers in such a cohesive way, like they all belonged together and the stitching was the perfect touch! And then those birds! So festive looking, somehow! Thanks for sharing your talents with us at As You See It Challenge!
