Chicago weather is confusing enough for us humans, but when it confuses the animals, you know it's bad. We have geese flying north in December and south in February, squirrels looking for handouts at your front door when they should be snuggled somewhere in our bare trees, and skunks that go traipsing about our backyard when they should be sound asleep.
Joanna Bromley is aptly called Robin in Ivy, and I love coloring this little guy over and over. Today I set him against a blue sky twinkling with snowflakes, and gave him more color than is normally seen in the winter. That's because I remember a poem/song from my childhood called "little Robin Red-breast" and wanted him to match the song lyrics.
The card is one of several I am making for Christmas showcasing this beautiful image.
There are lots more beautiful stamp sets available at the shoppe.
