Christmas Birdie

Its time to start my Christmas cards for 2011 and this bright green birdie is perfect for the job! I took Doodle Pantry Branch Bird and put a santa hat on him from Santa Accessories, way too cute. I do have a bone to pick though, I used red Stickles and it burbed and sputtered and made a mess of my background! I'm right ticked off, lol!
