PSX Cardinal Wreath

Hi & welcome to another scheduled post. I noticed some blog follower numbers changed. Don't know if I lost 2 followers or if Blogger is up to its tricks again. Is this happening to anyone else???

On to the card, which is for DH. He likes cardinals too.


PSX image stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with copics. This was fun to color, trying to choose greens for the foliage so as to give the wreath some texture & dimension. Always enjoy coloring the cardinals. Added a jeweled-candy cane stick on, then wished I had left it off. Oh well.

Die cut with S/B Classic Circle, green mat with the matching sized scalloped circle.

- Recollection Christmas papers for the background and border. Kept it simple as it was getting down to the wire for having DH a special card ready. Decided to leave off another sentiment, since the background has the words on it.

Ya'll have a great day. Big Hugs and lots of Christmas Blessings.

I've lost two followers as well, and I've sen some others commenting it too. Maybe it's blogger, maybe it's someone leaving blogger for other social medias, I'm not sure.
I so wish I one time can see a cardinal IRL. I didn't know about their existence before I entered blogland and cardmaking. It's a lovely card, Mary.

A really beautiful card Mary and the Cardinals stand out so perfectly on that wreath which you have coloured to perfection and I love all the differennt colours of green and the pretty sentiment covered paper in the background and those stripes finish it wonderfully. Your DH will love it! x

Beautiful cardinal card. Love the Cardinals set in the circle that way. Blogger is adjusting the figures for some reason on our blogs. You won't be missing any of your followers. I checked mine and they are all still there. My front page says 325 followers but the back sheet 328. Hope your enjoying the sunny weather where you are. Hugs Mrs A.

I love these little cardinals! Such a pretty card, Mary! My follower numbers have dropped too. Don't know what's going on.

Very pretty card Mary, and with your signature cardinals, it just can't miss! Yes, last week I lost 8 followers as I sat here watching them one by one disappear. I googled it, and apparently Instagram has gone on a cleaning spree of followers for some odd reasons I don't understand. The cleanse spilled down to the followers on blogger too apparently!
Do have a very merry Christmas and a super special happy new year in 2016!

Hello, Mary! I think Blogger is fiddling with everyone's followers. I lost one myself last week but others have commented on the same so I am not feeling as sad about it now. Your cardinal card is beautiful! Cardinals are your specialty! Wishing you the happiest of holidays!

Lovely card Mary. The cardinals are gorgeous against the green. And yes - I gained a follower but my total went down, go figure!!
Christmas Blessings

It is so strange with the followers...I hope it is just that some blogs were inactive for a long time and blogger threw them of...
Your card looks so great! Love the birds! Looks so much better as baubles on a wreath! Enjoy your day!

Sue said...

Hi Mary, I've not lost any Followers. Blogger often plays up, so it could well be that.

Love the card. Those Cardinals are so pretty.

Hope you have a lovely day. Sue
