You really brought those birds to life with your fabulous Copic coloring, Bonnie. I love birds and this card captured my heart.

Your birds are colored beautifully Bonnie and I love how you tucked them in the slimline frame. TFS

All three of these birds stick around all Winter here, Bonnie! Although Mr. Finch doesn't sport his yellow feathers in Winter. Gosh this is so beautiful - love how you've colored them - the embossing is a really nice touch!

Your birds are so vibrant and colorful. I love the slimline card that shows them off.

Your 3 birds totally remind me of my Christmas dinnerware Bonnie, and I totally hope I get to use them Christmas Day if the snowmagedon barreling towards us doesn't force everyone to stay home! But anyway, your card is absolutely BEAUTIFUL, and the birds are colored to perfection! Lovely, lovely card my friend!! Hugs. :0)

Your birds are just wonderful and so colourful too xx

Susan said...

You might not know but birds are one of my favourite themes for Christmas cards and this one doesn't disappoint - I absolutely love it. Those three different birds are all equally adorable and beautifully coloured. The slimline frame shows them off perfectly. One of my favourites of your cards!

Nstiz said...

These are so skillfully colored that I thought for sure you cut them out from a card or magazine. WOW! This is amazing Bonnie and love how you used them. Fabulous card!

Pat said...

Three beautifully coloured birds Bonnie, and I love the look with each within its own frame, such a pretty design and love the embossed background. x

Lisa Elton said...

What a darling trio they are! This is such a sweet card, Bonnie!

Beautiful layout for your 3 birds, I love them each peeking out of a frame ♥

Darnell said...

You know how I love birds, Bon, so I really appreciate how you are stretching your images to use them all year long in your beautiful cards! Hugs, Dolly

TK said...

Spring Birds maybe, but I totally LOVE them as winter birds! What a beautiful card, Bonnie

Sandy said...

I can't think of a better subject for winter cards than birds. I am sure these beautiful creatures are very appreciative for the people who feed them especially during the winter months. Of the three birds, I cannot pick a favorite. Needless to say I love this card. I have 5 feeding stations in our backyard where I can see them from my craft room window. We have quite a variety of birds with an abundance of Cardinals. We also have a squirrel feeder on the side of the tree that is closest to my window. Right now it is like a circus - I think my backyard friends know cold weather is coming and they are eating as much as they can right now.

I really enjoyed this card Bonnie and should consider making some bird cards myself.

Fascinating how cleverly you used this series of spring birds to make a Christmas card. I love your cardinal, I have never seen these birds in real life and I think they are breathtaking.

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, these pretty pretty birds! What a wonderful card design for them. So lovely, Bonnie! You always make me want to shop!

These birds are so darling, Bonnie! You colored them so beautifully. Love the layout, using the windows and sprig so well. I wish I had windows like these in my house!
