I hope you are enjoying the holiday festivities.
It's almost time for the big day!
Here's another card to celebrate the holidays.
This cardinal was in my UFO Box all watercolored and ready to go except
that there was a bad smear above the branch. Ach!!!
I cut the offending part off with my paper cutter and around the other sides,
leaving the tail portion to fussy cut.
Saved! I could add more shading to the cardinal but I think
it's best to cut my losses and go with this.
He has hopefully flown to his chosen destination by now.
The CAS Watercolour Challenge this month is
and there's still time to enter.
The Design Team and our Guest Designer, Hideko (Papercraft Boutique)
have some beautiful samples to inspire you.
Check them out, then I hope you'll join us.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
