      Thank you so much! I love the hammered look of the ornaments!

  11. Awesome cards. Cardinals are my second favorite bird. We did not have them in Southern California, but my favorite bird is the hummingbird, they stayed around all year there. Michigan’s state bird is the Robin, and I am always happy to see them come back in the spring. DH has Raynaud’s and his hands are always cold and nails at times blue. Hope your hands don’t hurt too much.
