Love Birds


Hello!  I want to apologize for being a horrible blogger this week!  My little 3 y.o. has been really sick with a fever and not sleeping well, therefore, the rest of the house has not been sleeping well.  Turns out he has Strep Throat so he is now on antibiotics and doing better:)  I'm just praying the rest of the house doesn't come down with it!  I really want to have a healthy Christmas break! 

I thought it would be fun to create a sweet little Valentine for today.  I just adore these images from the My Cute Stamps set Elegant Birds.  I decided to use both birds from this set and make them look like little love birds:)  The dp is PTI Simple Valentine and I used some fabulous Cotton Candy Baker's Twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon to hang the cage and to tie my tag to my button.  This GORGEOUS show stopper sheer ribbon is some Sheer White Organza w/ Satin Edge and Silver Accents.  Don't you just LOVE IT!!!  It's super inexpensive and oh so BEAUTIFUL!!!  I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #104 for my layout.

I hope you have a wonderful Saturday!  I'm going to try to finish up my Christmas cards and get them sent out (yes I am waaaay behind with everything this year!)  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Ooh, the dreaded strep throat! My oldest daughter got it so much we had her tonsils removed and she hasn't had it since. I hope no one else gets sick.

I love this card and have this stamp set and you make me want to pull it out and play with it!

So sorry your little one isn't feeling well!

Your card is gorgeous! I love the way you colored your little birds. And the white heart border really helps the red to pop!
