- It's always good for us to pause
- And think awhile of Santa Claus--
- That jolly symbol we revere
- When we approach the changing year.
- Behind his beard so long and white,
- In which our children take delight,
- There beats a heart from color free
- Which bids all children "come to me."
MARSHALL M. MORGAN, "The Spirit of Santa Claus"
when I saw the new Studio 75 Collection- Winter Morning it was a must in my world! The soft pastels of Christmas filled the pages with greens, blues and grays - this collection is a Christmas wish coming true! I know I will be making cards from the pieces I have left but mojo brought me to an altered project and a Christmas birdhouse to create. The Birdhouse is a template from the Silhouette store, and the stand - simply a box and rolled paper.
The bird is a handmade resin along with the bird nest below painted with 13@rts paint Cobalt Blue (I think that has become my favorite 13@rts color.) Flowers from our etsy store and the use of diecuts from my stash to create the holly swirls.
