Cool Cardinal

I had my holiday SAS last Friday and the cardinal card was my customers least favorite. Most of the comments were that is something my mother or grandmother would like. I love the bird! So to celebrate him I have been wanting to do a candle and coaster with him. Funny, how some people are drawn to different images.

the tile
I was suppose to go on my son's field trip to Plimoth plantation (Mayflower, Plimoth rock, etc....) but was postponed due to weather. Since, I had the day off from work, I took my own field trip to the only IKEA store in Massachusetts. Lucky for me, it is only about 20 miles away. I got to dream about my craft room when ever we start our addition. But, I did pick up some of the spice jars to make something out of soon!

I love the cardinal too (but I'm NOT old -- Hee-Hee -- & don't be asking Gwen about that either, cause she'll "fib")--LOL!!! I like them because we had them in the Midwest & don't here. I miss them; they were so beautiful against a backdrop of winter snow--so bright & beautiful! I love seeing them when I go back! I cross-stitched one for my Mom & she loved it! Your candle is gorgeous!!!
