CPS and Little Bitty Birds


Hi there dear friends!!! I hope you are some place warm with those you love tonight!!! It is cold and snowy once again here in Montana. Typical weather for January and I love to hunker in, put on my jammies, a new scent in my Scentsy Burner, and craft the night away!!!! Tonight I thought it would be fun to get back to the challenges I love so much. Card Positioning Systems has a great sketch for this week and I have some Little Bitty Birds Calling my name!!!!

CPS #199

Here's the sketch:
and here's my take on the sketch!!
Supplies used:
Cardstock: PTI Rustic White
Cardstock: Fancy Pants Vintage Valentine
PTI Stamps: Little Bitty Bird, Love Birds, Wreath For All Seasons
PTI Die: Little Bitty Bird
Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Aged Mahogany, Crushed Olive, Worn Lipstick, Brushed Corduroy
PTI Felt
PTI Button Twine
Ribbon and Lace from my stash
Martha Stewart Doily
Pink Paislee Cupid Punchouts
McGill Punch: Pine Branch
Fiskars: Pinking Shears

Oh how I love these sweet Little Bitty Birds!!!! I know I will be using this set all the time!! It's really quite funny, I had such a hard time transitioning out of the Christmas mode, but the romantic feel of Valentine's Day did get my creative juices flowing!!! However, you will be seeing some Christmas cards on my blog each month as I have joined a challenge over at PTI to set goals for Christmas 2011...we'll see how I do!!!

Well, it's time for bed!!! I want to thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!!! I appreciate you all so very much!!! I hope you have a wonderful day!!!!!

This is my kind of card. It has an elegant color combination, soft papers, exquisite lace and velvet ribbon, a lace doily stamped with a wreath, and three perfectly placed hearts. I truly love it.
