Young Vermillion

We did get snow!  In October.  I don’t remember ever having snow in October.  It’s almost gone, but it was fun to wake up to.  It got a little heavy at times, but it only amounted to an inch or two.  Mike says 4, but I don’t think so.  Anyway – it wasn’t enough to stop traffic or keep anyone at home.   A lot of area residents lost power and some trees broke, because it was very wet and heavy.  Our power went out for about 1 second two times yesterday, but that’s pretty common.  I think the power company does that on purpose to save money.

Here’s the gorgeous card I got from Mary Fife.  I love her watercoloring, and she often pops up part of an image to make it less “flat.”

I love the way Mary used the evergreen tree from Lovely as a Tree as the branch for the bird.  And the bow is lovely.  Those square brads make a nice “knot” for bows, and they’re so easy to make.  Here’s a closer look at the bird.

See how she stamped it two times, then cut one out and popped it up on dimensionals?  Cute!!
