Hi friends.  Bright sunny cold day here today.  Might be getting some of the storm that is coming up the Atlantic coast, they are predicting snow for us.

My blogging friend Dora from the Netherlands sent me this drawing that she made of the baby birds in the nest.  I had admired it when she posted it and was totally in awe that she did the drawing.  Well, she used the drawing on a card without making a copy, so when I told her how much I liked it...ready for this.....she did the drawing over again!!!  I have had it for a few weeks, printed and waiting to be colored, and was kind of intimidated about coloring it.  Well, she posted it today on her blog and I was inspired to make a card with my copy.  Thank you Dora, you're a very talented young women, don't stop drawing, you are awesome at it!!!

WOW WEE what a fabulous drawing Hooray for Dora. I love how the whole card turned out. Just lovely and cheery at the same time. Love the newest picture of the blog dog in training. We are suppose to get between 12-24 inches of the white stuff. I had today off so I went to the doctor's and then we spent time getting things ready for the storm, which means it probably won't come now that I am all prepared. Talk soon. Stay safe in the storm if you get it.

I find the leaf around the image so nice, it looks like the nest is in the shrubs( do it by translation)

Dora is very talented, and what a sweet friend to redo the image for you. This is such a sweet card! Be safe with the upcoming storm. I was hoping to see my kids this weekend, but I think that might get postponed.
