Magical Winter Moments

Today is a wonderfully "cool" blog hop with Sparkle N Sprinkle! Click HERE to start at the beginning where you will be treated to all sorts of "Magical Winter Moments" by the Sparkle Team!  I am not in the blog hop, but wanted to share a wintry card with you anyway! And I do have blog candy - still celebrating being a SCS Dirty Girl, so today is more blog candy, and announcements of previous winners! Keep reading!

My card today is made using images from Sparkle N Sprinkle's Stamp Set 348 - Birds. I stamped the Chickadees and A Chirpy Hello with Pinecone VersaColor ink and then heat embossed using Sparkle N Sprinkle's Clear Detail Embossing Powder. I only inked part of the sentiment so it would fit within my circle.
Aren't they just adorable? I think Chickadees are so sweet and cute! Take a look at this gorgeous photo:
Sparkle N Sprinkle is having a Design Team Call and you can read all about it HERE!

  5. Are you kidding?! Did I really win the grab bag of Unity stamps?! How cool is that!!! Thanks.

    I love that beautiful photo of the chickadee. I had no idea that they were such a majestic-looking bird. You always see images of them just sitting that are kind of like any other bird, but that photo is great and so is your card!

    Candy?! Yes, I would love a chance to win candy again. :-)

  6. What a gorgeous card...I love bird images and yours is wonderful. That die cut behind the image is so beautiful! And candy...of course I would love to win some candy!! This stamp set would be perfect for Thanksgiving cards.

  9. Hi Judy,
    I love your card, and the way your coloring of the chickadee is so lifelike. I've never seen a chickadee before - it's wings are so beautiful, aren't they. Thank you for sharing that photo, and also for the chance to win blog candy :)
