My Sweetheart Birdie

Good Morning!

I'm off to a great week so far! Had a quiet day yesterday and today I'm busy preparing for a fun couple of days with my nephews while their mama (my sister) and daddy are at the hospital. We should be welcoming my new niece tomorrow sometime! Hee! I can hardly wait- though I'm sure I'll be busy enough with my two girls and her two boys!

Over the weekend I made a fun card- a valentine for my honey:

All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Cheep Talk set, I {Heart} Hearts set
Ink: Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Baja Breeze, Basic Black classic inks
Paper: Whisper White, Old Olive, Kraft, Soft Suede cardstock; Sweet Pea DSP; Thoroughly Modern DSP
Accessories: Two-step Bird punch, Scallop Edge punch, paper piercer, dimensionals

While peeking at all the fun creations at Two Peas in a Bucket last week, one design in particular caught my eye and I couldn't wait to try it out! Here is the original design I cased by Tanis: Lets Party Card I loved the simplicity of the paper strips and the dotted edges. So cute! Thanks Tanis for the inspiration! She's got more clean and simple cards and some great scrapbook designs on her blog: Card Confessions.

I am so glad I went through my stamps last week! The Cheep Talk set was another one I unearthed from underneath all of my new goodies. Doesn't the little bird make a cute little valentine? I love it!

Hope you enjoy your day and hopefully the next time I post, I can share cute pictures of my tiny new niece!!! :)

Thanks for stopping by today!
