Monnie Ryan 12/5/2009 1:27:34 PM

I see this just as Jack told me a big red male cardinal was fighting a sparrow at the feeder outside our window! So far we've been spared the snow, but it's on the way. This is a stunning photo -- Joannie is right, it would be a fantastic card! #8193877

Ron McEwan 12/5/2009 2:21:05 PM

Carol you sure did nail this one, the crisp color of the cardinal, the texture of the old fence post and the rusty barb wire, the snow is icing on the cake so to speak, terrific as always my friend. #8193988

Val Feldman 12/5/2009 2:43:46 PM

I just love your comp on this one, Carol! The diagonal barbed wire with perfect placement of that superb looking cardinal - stunning! As always, your details are top-notch - everything is goose-bump turn for that twinge of jealousy! LOL! Excellent work with tons of the ol' Carol Magic at work. Have a great weekend! #8194033

Mark Dodge 12/6/2009 9:45:25 AM
