Newsprint Birdie says Lots of Hugs

Good Monday to you.  Hope your week-end was fun and that you have had some time for yourself.  I went to a brunch yesterday with two of my very best friends and hubby too!
I received some very happy mail on Saturday little order from Ellen Hutson arrived and I could't wait to stamp this new newsprint bird from Hero Arts.  I used Julee's MOJO sketch 223 for the layout (that's 2 weeks in a row...I hope I can keep up and do a few challenges every week!). I stamped this bird on kraft cs from PTI and simply cut out, a very easy bird to cut!  I added a green rhinestone for her/his eye and placed a teeny little black one on top of that for the pupil.  The MoxieFabWorld has a die cut challenge going on and I wanted to try my hand at this too, so I used the eyelet circle from Spellbinders(black SU cs) and a new Memory Box wreath die(pear pizzazz SU cs) to place on top of a Spellbinder circle (Echo Park "Yours Truly"polka dot).  The card base is also in Pear Pizzazz and the black and white vine paper is an older K and Co. sheet that I have loved since it has been available...quite a while!
For the heart I used 2 heart PTI die cuts and with some more red papers from Echo Park and PTI.  On the green panels I used a CB folder and a PTI embossing plate.  So, that's it---a fun anniversary/Valentine card.  I may have to hold onto this one to give to my fabulous hubby!  Thanks for taking a peek,
lots of hugs to you,
