January SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the January 2010 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  If this is your first stop, then all you need to do is click on the name at the end of this post to go onto the next person and see their fantastic artwork. You will continue to do that until you return back to me. Then you'll know you have seen them all.
If by some chance, there is a broken link, I have the list of participants in the column to the right.

My card for today is combined with the January SOTM and the Constant Campaign for this month called Felicity.  Since they are both on special until January 31st, I've decided to present them both together.

The papers, birds and flowers are from the Felicity packet and the frame that the bird is around is from the "True Friends" Stamp of the Month. Don't they just go great together!

The stitching along the left and bottom is done by hand with matching embroidery floss.

I used a sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge.  I love to do some of the Internet Sketch Challenges in conjunction with the sketches in our new Wishes book. 

Now hop on over to Maricar Harris' Blog for more Eye Candy

Ornate Ornaments

I've had this stamp set for ages and finally decided to use it. The making of this card took a lot of thought and so much time to make, but I'm pleased with the finished product.

I used a sketch from Just Us Girls Challenge week 10. for inspiration. This is such a wonderful sketch and has so many possibilities. I know I'll come back to this one again.

Stamp set is from Close to my Heart and is called Ornate Ornaments. This set is also available in French and Spanish.

The colors of cardstock are Cranberry and New England Ivy.

I used Copic Markers to color the ornaments.
Gold red and green Glitter was added to the ornaments
