Muse ChristmasVisions #24

Chriss Blagrave has made the most darling of Christmas scenes from nature this week ...



... had to play along!  BUT alas, not a snowman in the house!  What's a girl to do?  Improvise!!  For MCV#24:


Yikes!  Not a small enamel dot in the house either!!  let's pretend he's looking through binoculars, for that little Cardinal on Chriss's card, 'kay? 

Thanks, Chriss for the inspiration, and a much needed push to stretch myself a bit!  See you on the slopes!!!

What a clever and creative way to make a snowman. I cannot believe you live in Michigan and have no snowmen...I live in sunny california and have at least a dozen snowman living and sweating in my craft room.

WOW!! Michele, what a fabulous way to improvise!!! this is so beautiful. I love that snowy background, is it a stamp? it's lovely and it looks like it's heat embossed? Just awesome.
Hmm..With the type of Winters we have up here in the Mid West, I think it's time for you to go shopping for snowmen!!
Thank you for sharing this beautiful card.
