Hey Everyone

Brrrrr - well the white stuff has finally arrived - yuk when you're working and lovely when you are watching it from inside a cosy warm house when you don't have to go out ;o)

Today I would like to share with you a card I have made using the oh so lovely Li'l Sweet Tweeter from Whimsy Stamps by Elisabeth Bell - I just love that little birdie!

The recipe for the card is:
