I love the symbolism of the cardinal. It reminds me to remember. To remember special times and love ones, and during this time of the year, I think we all do a little reminiscing. So I thought this would a perfect project for December.

This project is super easy and comes together fast. I love the process of putting the birdhouse together, really making it almost 3D and giving it some depth and texture with the Crackle Paint and Texture Sand.

Have fun creating and I hope your winter season is filled with love and laughter.
