DeeDee's Digis - Birdie's Snow Day

Good afternoon, and as you read this, we are hopefully on the way to Florida to spend the holidays with our DD & SIL. This is a scheduled post, but once we've arrived, get the laptop hooked up, I'll try to catch up with visiting.  Our area of Upstate South Carolina got a bit brisker weather-wise on Saturday, even though it was sunny. The wind was screeching round the house corners and the mild temps dropped sharply on Friday night. So it will be lovely to be in the warm climate of Sunny Florida (we hope!)

Here's the card for today:


DeeDee's Digi Birdie's Snow Day and when I saw this cute digi, I knew it would come to Mama! Bet you can guess why. Used the pre-colored image, added a few touches of shading, die cut with a S/B classic Circle,  some 'snow' (Stickles with SnS Twinkling Clouds. Fussy cut a 2nd Birdie to pop up over the main image, as well as the perch.  Added a bit of dimension.

- Blue twig paper from a $2.50 6x6 pack found at A C Moore (one of our local box stores). This was left from the earlier card shown here. The curved pieces (Snippets!) were left from that card, so just popped these top & bottom over the twig paper, and liked the effect.

- Snowflakes were snippets from the same project..so that's a bit of debris cleaned off the desk!

- Sentiment is from the same digi set and die cut with a S/B ribbon tag die. Easy Peasy!

Don't forget about the DeeDee's Digi shop closing, and lose out on the 75% off the designs! There's lots of occasions designs to browse through, and this is a wonderful time to get some of them. Expect you are busy with last minute Christmas chores, so I hope you can take a few moments during the day - to remember what the holiday really is all about. Thanks for popping it. Big hugs & Happy Sunday

Snippets turned into sweetness! Love your combo of papers and the curves, adorable little image!
Sorry I haven't been visiting as much as I'd like to in December, there are things going on all the time, different events, concerts, parties, birthdays and all the last minute shopping and card making. Not in a stressful way, but it limits my computer time. Hope you had a safe trip:)

Hi Mary, Love the card.

We have had mild weather recently, but today the wind is bitter, so a shock to the system.

Hope you had a safe journey and you have a lovely time. Sue

Pippa said...

What a great fun card. Sorry I missed commenting on quite a few of your wonderful creations but our internet went down, then I sliced my finger and now I have 'the school cold'. Great start to the Christmas break! On the plus side I did get the mince pies made and the tree up before I felt too rotten. Have a happy and blessed Christmas with your family.

Cute card Mary and I love the way the snippets have just fallen into place beautifully on your creation. I expect by now you are in sunny Florida. I'm in sunny Cyprus but very chilly in the evenings. I hope you and your family have a lovely Christmas together. Wishing you also a healthy and peaceful 2016. Hugs Wynn xx
