Wooohooo!!  If any of you saw my post yesterday, then you know I've been selected to join the amazing Rock Stars design team at Repeat Impressions Stamps.  I'm so very, very excited and honored to be a part of this team and I'm really looking forward to the fun months ahead. 

This is my first What If Wednesday sketch challenge and I hope you'll play along.  You don't have to use Repeat Impressions stamps, yet, if you do, you'll be entered in the drawing twice for a double chance to win a gift certificate to some of these fabulous stamps.  You can find the instructions on the Repeat Impressions blog site.

Here's the sketch you'll need to play along with.

Here's my inspiration from that sketch

It's no fun living in Maine in the winter without snow!!!  Especially if you like to ski and snowshoe.  But here we are - January and bare ground.  Of course, a snowless world is more convenient for getting around in, still...where's the snow? 

These little snow birds look so adorable as they sit on that limb waiting for some of the white stuff.

The image I used is # 309 and the sentiment stamp is #2006. The birds are colored with Copic Markers and the embossed background was creted with a sheet of Echo Park dp using an SU ef.  The "snow" effect was created using "Diamond Dust".  I also glitzed the branches and the hats with my Sakura Gelly Roll Clear Star pen.  (Not sure if the camera picked that up).

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you'll grab some play time and play along with us.

Cheri- this is so cute! Great job coloring the birdies! Today we are expecting to reach 50°, but 2-6" of white stuff tomorrow. I am guessing it will reach you in a few days! Congrats again, GF!

These birds are so adorable! I tried to order this stamp on the RI website, but couldn't find it. Is it discontinued?
