Hello! It’s Day 6 of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas. I made another card for it. I am also sharing a project that I made for a couple of challenges. Let’s start with Creepmas. But I tell you…the creep factor for this card is going to vary depending on who is looking at it.
Have you every been outside at dusk, when it’s recently snowed? It’s soooooo quiet. And the landscape looks so very different with all that snow. Then, you hear a rustle coming from somewhere. And you see a bright splotch of red against a white and black backdrop. It’s a lone cardinal in a birch tree. Not too creepy right? Except for that instant when you didn’t know what made the rustling sound…….
I made this card for a friend of mine. She posted a photo very similar to this one on my Facebook wall. She knows how special cardinals are to me, so I decided to replicate the image for her as a little thank you.
Now it’s time for my second project. I made an ATC for the Wicked Wednesday Challenge as well as the latest A Day For Daises challenge. The Wicked Wednesday challenge is “Things with Wings,” and the A Day For Daisies challenge is “Shades of Blue.”
I used the Free Hand Bird with Music Notes, which is of course from A Day For Daisies. . I watercolored the image, and added some beautiful Ice Stickles around the edge. The little heart shaped button is a soft blue, but I’m not sure how easy it is to see in the photo.
Is’t this a lovely image? I love the style of all the images from this company. It’s never creepy or scary, but something about them really draws me in. They are for sure one of my favorite digi companies.
My simple sentiment was created using an alphabet stamp from Just Rite Stampers. My blue paper has a pretty, pale spotted pattern on it, but again, it’s a little tough to see in the photos.
I hope you have enjoyed my offerings for today. Please be sure to stop by the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, they are all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

Fabulous creation for the hop!
Beautiful projets, Alison! Youve certainly captured walking through the woods on a snowy evening (with a tiny bit of creep LOL) and your songbird is delightful! xxD

Beautiful work . I love the birds.
Gorgeous card and ATC- love the blue bird!
Your 1st ATC is just a tad bit creepy…not knowing where a sound came from always sends a chill up my spine.
Love the ATC, so perfectly blue and winged!
Thanks for playing along with us this week at Wicked Wednesday.
Wow…two beautiful projects. That little bird from A Day for Daisies is very cute!

It's beautiful and I do hear the rustling! Eeeee!
Stunning cards! Love the b/w woods with the cardinal and your blue bird card is so sweet.
How beautiful these are. Luv the scare factor of the 1st one – yep I would be looking over my shoulder all the time coz the snow definitely makes everything quiet and eerie doesn't it.
Very cool little ADFD creation – that birdie is soooo cute 🙂 x

These are both gorgeous! LOVE the beautiful wintry scene on your first card and your bird and glittery accents are amazing on the second one! 🙂
