This cardinal punch art card makes design 7 of 10 from my recent 20-card Christmas class. The Cherry Cobbler cardinal is made using the Bird Builder and Owl Builder punches.
CASE'ing a card by fellow demo Heidi Baks, I used a Daydream Medallions stamp for the wreath (item 131976, $36.95 wood; item 126467, $26.95 clear), and little berries with Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details (item 125585, $2.50). I popped up the punch cardinal with dimensionals and added a bow of Cherry Cobbler seam binding. The sentiment is from More Merry Messages.

A storm is moving in this weekend. We lost power in the early hours of this morning for several hours, but it's back on now. The bird feeder in the backyard is bustling with activity. I think the birds are trying to fill their bellies before strong wind and rain hits.
I've got a busy afternoon and evening. My Lions Club is hosting its first-ever dinner and auction tonight. I made the table tents and helped set up yesterday. Today, I'm making a Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie for the dessert table and have been assigned data entry - entering bid numbers and winning bids, then taking in the money when people are finished. Here's hoping we have big bucks and no whammies! The monies benefit Poulsbo Elementary School technology and the Retsil Veterans Home. I hope you enjoy a wonderful Saturday!
I haven't posted vintage items for a few days. Here are some old cigar boxes and miscellaneous items I'm saving for a special project. I plan to recover that foot stool some day too! So many projects, so little time. lol If you'd like to see more old, vintage stuff, please visit Booth 6 at http://www.facebook.com/booth6goods.
