You have through Sunday Jan 21 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on Jan 22 on her Blog. On the first & third Wednesdays of every month, we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop! The Special is the Floral Alphabet stamps – 50% off!

Aren’t these birds adorable? I love the stitch lines & patterns on them. While I was unpacking some crafty stuff (after our recent move), I came across some backgrounds I made ages ago. I used a portion of the blue/green wax paper resist Cuttlebug bg on this card. To me, it looked similar to the Floral Cuts Bg die, so I thought they’d work well together. I colored the little birds using colors from the bg piece, then fussy cut them. The Hello die was cut once out of white & once out of teal & stacked, a little offset.

Here’s a look at the inside & 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!
