Tiny little pussy willow. Softer than a baby's pillow. Sometimes when I stroke your fur. I almost hear you purr.


I thought that was such a sweet little poem about pussy willows that I wanted to share it with you. For my card I decided to do burned glue technique on the pussy willow blossoms to add texture. I love the sentiment. I know I will use it alot.




I was inspired by this cover to Jennifer Haines Piano Solo album called Christmas Magic.



I love this song called Winter Snow Song. It is my new favorite Christmas song.
