Hi, There!

Who wants to be inside or outside in this window scene?  This is my cat Sam, he sits at all the available window spots in our house watching all the wildlife outside.  I know he loves being inside where it is warm but sometimes - I wonder?  

Now that little bird looks happy enough outside in the snow, safe from a prowling cat.  His stockings are all hung with the hopes of some bird seed (I have a bag ready)!!

I created the background for the bird with Distress Oxide Inks - Broken China and Faded Jeans - splashed with water droplets.  Added Stardust.  Die cut a window, added acetate to the back of the window and glued some snow on the inside.  Used 3D foam to mount the window over the bird stamp.  Colored the bird image with Copic Markers.  

Used an embossing folder of snowflakes for the background paper.  Added the window scene.  Stamped and colored the next image with Copic Markers. I cut that image out and applied that plus the die cut cat to the front of the window.

Ribbon from my stash and added the sentiment "Merry Christmas" in white embossing powder.  Thanks for stopping by and until next time, big hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn
