FMS312, MM264 and CASology 274 Tiny Cardinal


Happy Wednesday, peeps!  A quick post today, I am running late!  I have a small 4.25" square Christmas card for you today, using three challenges:





I just happened to have a piece of Kraft cardstock left in just the right size!  I stamped it with a retired Cornish Heritage Farm gingham stamp in the lower left corner, added a little scallop trim and a diecut cardinal on a simple little branch!  I hope it's CAS enough!


Sentiment is from Sweet N Sassy's Holiday Greetings stamped in Chocolate Chip; cardinal is Memory Box's Cheery Cardinals; branch is from Christmas Pines, stamped in Crumb Cake; stitched square is from Lil'Inker.  Thanks for popping in today!


Cassidy had off school yesterday so we squeaked in a trip to Longwood Gardens before it started raining!  Their chrysanthemum displays are incredible!  Unfortunately, she wanted to play in the kids' area more, so I only got a couple of pictures:



Enjoy your day and be blessed!

LeAnne, I tried commenting but there was an error...hopefully this works! I love the pics from Longwood Gardens, I've been there many times but never in the fall. I see now that I need to go see those mums! I love your tiny cardinal and the pretty pine branch, such a great color combo! Thanks for joining us at CASology!
