Forest Friends


I started out in a swap called Forest Friends. We have had many "forest friends" swap now...every few months there is a new forest theme. Great group of ladies to be swapping with by the way!!!!

This is the 5th round of the forest swap and each time the theme is different. Since we are such a friendly group in the forest...some ideas for this round were cards with...frogs and fishes, little girl with birds around her, beavers and owls...you get it...friends in the forest.

I used a stamp I found at Michael's. With Christmas coming I thought this stamp would be perfect. Can't you just imagine this magical snowman in a wintery forest somewhere chatting with the lil blue bird? Okay...so my imagination gets away from me. But the snowman and bird looked like good forest friends to me.

I used Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red and Very Vanilla cardstock. My designer paper is from Imaginisce. Called, Polar Expressions - All Bundled Up. I also used my CB embossing folder, Riding Hood Red/Vanilla Ribbon and retired Felt Flurries from SU!

Stay warm friends!!!
