Fantastic use of those fun flamingos, Carol. I especially love your layers of happy papers and colors! The clouds look especially bone-chilling LOL The other day, I received a die that I couldn't figure out. Finally I read the name of the die and it was "Snowy Postbox". It occurred to me that it was a UK icon since it was by a British company. And now I see it here on your blog and "get it". Do your postboxes still look like this? Or is it a vintage postbox. I love your card! hugs, de

Oww, two for the price of one. I love them both but for totally different reasons. The flamingos are so very cute and I adore the humour of this card. The Delicious Doodles image is one of my favourite and your treatment of it looks stunning.

These funky birds are just fun & so colorful. Love the background too..adds to the whimsical feel of the card too. Great design idea to add the puffy snowclouds and the snowy surface for their boots. The Village Postbox scene is a dreamy one, and so pretty as well. TFS & Hugs
