Love Birds

Happy Sunday Everyone!  The sun is shining and there is only a trace of snow when I look outside my window.  Sounds like I need to enjoy it today as an Arctic blast is headed our way – oh well, winter had to come sometime 😉

The Christmas decorations are finally put away – I know, I know, I’ve been terrible getting organized but I wanted to enjoy the holidays as long as I could!  With no red and green in sight, I decided it was time for some red and pink to get ready for Valentine’s Day which is less than a month away.

I started out with this sketch from Sketch Saturday – I just love their sketches!

These two lovely Love Birds are digi stamps from DigiStamp Boutique.  I struggle with coloring with red copics, but this second attempt is definitely better than the first one I colored.

The DP is from The Paper Studio that I found at Hobby Lobby.  I used a border punch from EK Success to make the lacey border, punched a tag using a Marvy punch.  I printed a sentiment from my printer and cut it out and attached it to the tag.  I added a small brad to attach it to the card.  The ribbon is from my stash.

The heart mat is from Spellbinders and the hearts were diecut using PTI dies.  I die cut the hearts once with red and then again with black cardstock and then offset them to get them a matted look.  Punches and dies have become my go-to items lately.  Rarely do I make a card anymore without using at least one or the other, usually both.  I embossed the panel with an embossing folder, love these too!  Okay, I admit it – I love my toys, I mean my tools!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ll stop back again soon!  Dee
