I thought it would be fun to use pink for the background and dot it with the Viva Decor pen.  I added a little mounting tape behind the middle of the mountain landscape layer and assembled the snowman, then added the tree and cardinals.

I am using the Mountain Landscape Layers die as snowbanks, which I thought worked pretty good.

I die cut the candle outlines in white card stock, then used purple and silver glitter paper to fill in the spaces. Not necessary the colors I wanted but when I purchased the glitter card stock pack it did not included red.  I die cut the Glowing Candles holly using the green glitter card stock and trimmed it a little to fit on the white outline then added some fun purple berries.  Really easy to create with all the glittery goodness you could want.

Materials:
Memory Box - Tall Taper Candle & Glowing Candles
Cuttle Bug - Polka Dot Embossing Folder
Spellbinders Grand Ovals4-1/4" x 5-5/8" (white card stock) & 4-3/4" x 5-7/8 (green card stock)
Scotch Mounting Tape

Wow I just could not figure out how to use the IO Mountain Landscape layers die where it would look natural.  Finally, I used the bottom part of the mountain die on the blue card stock and glitter card stock for the snow covered mountains.   That way the blue card stock fits over the top part and makes it look like it is part of the scene.

Materials:
Impression Obsession - Mountain Landscape Layers & Fir Trees, Hill Landscape Layers, Small Cabin & Santa

Recently on the weekend my husband and I drove over to the Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge to do the Ridgefield Auto tour.  It is a 4 mile drive through wetlands and during the winter there are lots of migrating birds to see.  Make sure to bring your binoculars.  In case you have never seen a Nutria I have enclosed a picture.  These animals are really invasive now and do a lot of  damage to the vegetation and also gnaw on trees.


Yes they look like a beaver but without the paddle tail.  

Nutria (Myocastor coypus, Fig. 1) are semi-aquatic rodents native to southern parts of South America. In the 1930s, they were sold throughout North America to fur farmers and as a means of controlling unwanted aquatic vegetation. Various associations, magazine and newspaper articles, and demonstrations at county fairs promoted the sale of nutria in Washington.
More than 600 nutria farms existed in Oregon and Washington from the 1930s to the 1950s. Flooding and storms damaged holding structures, allowing nutria to escape. Farmers also released their stock when nutria farming became uneconomical. By the 1940s, nutria had been captured by trappers on both sides of the Cascade Mountains in Washington.
