FSS - Winter Chickadee - SSS86

Well, here it is Saturday already and only two more weeks until Christmas. I've been having an issue with tendonitis in my thumb for the past week so I don't even have my Christmas cards made yet.  I'm hoping it feels better by Monday and then I'm spending the whole week making them. But I guarantee you one thing, they won't have hand stitching on them! *Ü*

My card today was inspired by a sketch at The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge. Korin always has the greatest sketches so if you need some inspiration too, hope on over and play along with us this week.

The papers and Ribbon are all from the Mistletoe collection from Close to my Heart.

The Chickadee is from the Christmas Birds Series from Fred She Said. This image is one of three birds that comes in digi or pre-colored format.
The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.

Other Challenge Blogs this card was made for:
