Season's Greetings

It's Monday again and time for another {Ippity} hop! Visit the {Ippity} Blog for the full list of today's Blog Hop participants and all their wonderful {Ippity} creations...and to see what this week's challenge is!

Over the last few weeks I have had several cardinals land on my back deck here in New Hampshire. I did not grow up with cardinals in Australia so I'm always excited to see them...I also get excited to see the squirrels, chipmunks and turkeys that frequent my backyard! The cardinals are so striking with their bright red feathers and the little tufts on their heads and they inspired me to make today's card. I do not own any cardinal stamps so I had fun turning the birds in the {Ippity} set Quotes a'la Happy into cardinals for this Christmas card!

Don't forget you can purchase all the {Ippity} stamp sets and paper from me HERE and you won't pay any shipping within the US!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Supplies:-
Stamps - Quotes a'la Happy and Season of Joy by Ippity
SU coloured cardstock
Brilliance ink
SU markers
Cloud 9 DP
Ribbon
Foam dots

  23. Do Cardinals make a lot of noise Christy?
    They look like sweet creatures.
    I really like the colour and pattern combinations you have used.

    And if your birds don't make noise perhaps I could send you, LOL, a pair of Koels - also called storm birds that having flown from Indonesia and have taken up ( very loudly) residence at my home. GRRRR!
