Here's the collection I opted to use today...  You Will Find Refuge...  featuring a DARLING chickadee...


and my interpretation...
 
This week I decided to go with a winter theme using some fun red and white designer papers I had on hand.  I stamped the image and colored it with Copics before cutting/embossing with a Spellbinder die.  A bit of crochet trim and mulberry rose add a bit of interest.  Makes me want to start humming Christmas tunes! 


Now I will send you on your way to visit Michelle's awesome blog! Make sure to leave her some love! Big hugs and thanks so much for stopping by!
 
Hugs and blessings,
 
Lori
