Serendipity Jan Blog Hop #1!

Happy New Year & welcome to the Jan #1 Blog Hop for Serendipity Stamps!
If you arrived here from Miriam’s blog, you’re in the right place..if not, you may want to head over there first.

The Prize – One $20 gift code will go to one random commenter from the blogs. So be sure  to visit all the blogs because you don’t know which one the winner will be drawn from. You have through Sunday Jan 7 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on Jan 8 on her Blog. On the first & third Wednesdays of every month, we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

Since most of the country has been locked in the deep freeze, I thought this pair of Cardinals sitting on a snow covered branch would be the perfect image to use. I put them into my Misti, stamped, colored then overstamped them. They were stamped off to the left side a bit because I wanted room to add some snowflakes & I had already planned to draw a box frame around them. The cardinals were masked & the snowflakes stamped w/ the Distress ink then a layer of designer paper was added behind. 

Here’s a look at the inside…haven’t decided on a greeting yet. And below it are the Copics I used.

Next stop is
Vickie’s Blog!  Please be sure to comment on all the DT will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!
