Have a wonderful holiday

Best of the holidays to everyone and I hope you are doing well, and thank you all so much for your visit and wonderful comments on my last card.

We had snow again and the temperatures were so cold that is did not melt, so the roads tend to be icy.  The black bear we have living near the forest is still out and about, he knocked down my trash container and proceeded to stick his head into the container and pull out some chicken scraps.  Made a huge mess, then climbed the tree in the back and knocked my brand new Squirrel Buster Bird Feeder to the ground.  Dragged it over to the grass but thankfully was not able to get it open or damage it. Really what happened to the theory bears hibernate. 

Anyone that stops by knows I love the Lady Dancing die, I can always find so many fun ways to use it.

I added a little mounting tape to the back of the dog and Lady Dancing and also the snow mounds.  I glittered the trees and the fur trim on the dress. I coated the red dress with glossy accents for a little shine.  I always die cut the lady twice so I can use the legs and arms to re-position them as needed.  I also die cut the body with the dress in white card stock then trimmed the pieces off and attached them to the cuffs and skirt.  I tend to use pieces from other dies like the scarf and skates from the snowman die.

Glossy Accents 
Memory Box - Lady Dancing & Crisp Bow
Poppy Stamps - Frenchy
Dee's Distinctively - Small Alpine tree
Impression Obsession - Snowman (I used the scarf and skates)

  9. Delightful card Diane! Wow, you really have used your dancing lady in a different way. So clever!
    I've just read that they don't really hibernate but go into torpor which they wake from quickly and easily and will go from their dens to snack in the winter. So your chicken was a quick meal for it. It was lucky it didn't damage your bird feeder, it should be marketed as a bear buster bird feeder :). Debra x

  10. Poor bear must be really hungry :-(

    Beautiful card :-)

    Happy CHRISTmas xx

  11. So pretty and so clever. I love how you make these scenes, one talantedlady x

  12. Love those snow filled trees and your lovely dancing figure and that sweet little pup, such a beautiful scene Diane. A Merry Christmas to You..

    Hugs Babs x

  13. What a lovely card! I'm in Oregon and we were hit with the same winter storm. I am very thankful the ice finally melted from the driveway. I hope yours clears up soon. Hopefully, your bear will decide to hibernate soon!

    We are looking forward to a wonderful Christmas with our family. Wishing you a wonderful holiday season, too!

  14. You do have creative ways to use the dancer and I love the snow filled trees and the cute scarf on the dog, so fun!
    Sure hope the bear decides to find a place far away to hibernate.

  15. Hello Diane!! This creation is very lovely with your wintry scene!! I love how you've used this dancing lady in a different way here!! Beautifully done! HUGS :)

  16. Bummer on that bear damage. A bit frightening as well as annoying too! Love the bright red outfit of the dancing lady the way you've have used the die up against the backdrop of these fab snowy trees. Darling little black dog. Looks very icy! TFS, Merry Christmas, and Hugs

  17. Oh my gosh! Your card is fabulous and oh my gosh... bears. Well, at least you know your squirrel buster birdfeeder is also a bear buster one.

  18. Such a cute card. I love the cards you make with your dancing lady and this one is special to me with the little Frenchie. It looks a lot like my little Frenchie boy.

  19. Gorgeous card love the red coat and you create great scenes with your dies
