A Little Love Lives Here Goodness!!!

Hi there dear friends! I wasn't kidding when I said I needed a little craft therapy this evening!! Two posts in one night is totally out of the ordinary for me, but I just had to get out my Papertrey Ink Love Lives Here stamps that were inspired by my favorite paper crafter of all time Melissa Phillips. I used CPS Sketch #202:
I took some liberties with this sketch, but once I made the bird houses, the rest just fell into place!! I just love my PTI stamps!!! There are so many possibilities with them!!!

Here is my take on the sketch:
Supplies Used:
PTI Cardstock: Rustic Cream
Bazzill Cardstock: Red
PTI Stamps: Love Lives Here and Merry Little Christmas
Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger: Crushed Olive and Worn Lipstick
PTI Ink: Dark Chocolate
Stampin Up! Ink Real Red
Ribbon from my stash

Thanks for stopping by my blog this evening!!
I appreciate you!
Kristii
