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
