Lovey Dovey Birds

Coffee of the Day - Oatmeal Cookie Crumble

Today I am sharing with you the last of the cards I made for my guest designer stint over at Inky Antics. this one never did get shown on their blog, but I like the way it turned out. everyone has different tastes.....I understand. hope wherever it ended up, someone is enjoying it. ;)

I used the Swirly Birds stamp set, stamped on kraft cs. I never know how the different card stocks are going to take the watercoloring each time, so it's always a surprise to me to see how it turns out. papers are from the Basic Grey Kissing Booth collection. the border was cut with a Tim Holtz die. the tab is a Jenni Bowlin punch. sorry the leaf got a bit wonky in my scan. whoops! I used a re-purposed postage stamp that seemed absolutely perfect for this card. I'm always saving them whenever I can, much to David's dismay. grins! but I have a great old muffin tin that keeps them tucked away for me until I'm ready to put them on a project. the heart is from Webster's Pages. not sure where the flower came from because I mailed this out to Inky Antics so long ago. I think it is from some blog candy I won.....sorry I don't have more info for you.

Just to let you know, I have left almost all of my Design Teams. I'm not feeling that whippy right now and feel stretched pretty thin with my crafting. I have some guest positions coming up that have me excited, and that is about as much as I can handle with the few teams that remain.

Hope all of you have a most wonderful weekend! find the joy in the day! :)

Such a shame it didn't show up Jennifer because it's a very pretty card and I am sure everyone would have loved to see it. Fabulous distressed edges, layers and all the embellies. Also the stamped image and colouring is amazing.
