Hummingbird and snow and ice

Framelits and Hummingbirds

I feed the hummingbirds year round and enjoy them outside my office window when I work from home. Feeling inspired by these tiny little birds and came up with this design for the Stampin Queens sketch challenge 22 using the Elements of Style stamp set and the new Framelits from the new Occasions Mini catalog.
