Holiday Fun

Hello everyone!! Since I have to work this week, my stamp time is limited so I thought I would share a card I made last Saturday for Splitcoast's Inspiration challenge. Stef chose an awesome store called Ten Thousand Villages...what a great place to find some inspiration!!

I chose the Perched Birds card as my inspiration...the sweet little Poppy Stamps bird was paper pieced with papers from Little Yellow Bicycle's Winter Twig collection and Stickles was added to the hat fur. The branch stamp is from Impress and the diecut snowflakes, button, and twine finish it off. This is also for Rebecca's VSN challenge to use snowflakes.
Stamps: Impress Stamps branch, Poppy Stamps Bird
Paper: White, Little Yellow Bicycle dp
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Button, Twine, Snowflake Dies, Rick Rack die, Stickles

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Crafty Boots Challenge - Christmas
2. Creative Stamp Friends - Christmas
3. Heart Song Inspirations - snowflakes and/or doilies
4. Hooked on Craft - Christmas

Thanks for stopping by....I will have time tomorrow night to visit everyone's blogs....can't wait to see what you have been up to!!!
