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 too...my 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,
