Another Winter Song ~

My favorite LSS is hosting an Elzybell card contest and this will be my entry. Please wish me *luck* because the prize is a gift certificate to the store! :)

I love this sweet little image and think it fits perfectly on the mega circle punch. This card is 4.75" square and quite similar to one that I made earlier this month. I used the same layout and changed the paper. Actually, I just found this plaid background paper in my DCWV Christmas stack and noticed it coordinated with the paisley paper.

I've colored the image with prismacolor pencils and highlighted with diamond stickles. It's hard to see in the photo, but I've also white embossed the fur on Elzy's hat and coat.

Thank you dear friends for stopping by my blog today! I appreciate your comments and wish you a warm and wonderful winter day! Smiles, Pam :)

Poem for Today ~
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.

We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.

I wish you good luck not only with the contest, but in the coming new year as well! I love the random snowflakes on this card, the soft colors and your signature stitching! It works for me and hopefully it will work for the judges of the contest too!
Thanks for the poem - I read on another blog earlier this morning that daylight savings time starts March 9th! I'm so ready for that! TFS and Happy New Year!
