LOVE THESE BIRDIES!

Hi All!! Well, life is settling down just a little bit...not where it should be, but getting better! I am not clutching my hair and trying to pull it off my head anymore, so that's an improvement, lol!! I wanted to share this card I made awhile ago and forgot to share...I used my new Pebbles So Tweet paper which is so cute and perfect for my SU! chipboard birdies! And, I just love the colors too. Not a whole lot of stamping but I did sponge my birdie and the sentiment is one I typed on the computer and printed out. The eyelet is one of the decorative ones SU! came out with in the catty last time, and I just love them!!! I am getting all excited- only one more day until the new catty is ready to be ordered from - and you should see my list, LOL!!! I cannot WAIT to get all the new fabulous stamps, papers, punches, rubons, ribbons,...well, you get the picture, HEEHEE!!! It is a WONDERFUL catty, full of amazing product!!! I always get restless at the end of one catty as I wait for the next one and tend to dip into my contraband a bit more....but just wait and see what the new one brings!!! Can't wait to share with you!!! Today I am going to have some free time (FINALLY!) to myself and plan on catching up on my blog hopping - I feel so bad about all I have missed out on!!! Thanks for still coming by and leaving me love - it means a TON that you take the time to do so!!! And reminder: Don't forget to check out the fun challenge we have going on at Scrap and Stamp Saturday this week - the challenge ends on Friday and there is a fabulous stamp up for grabs for anyone who plays along!!! So, get those creative juices flowing and upload those wonderful layouts I just KNOW you have!!! See ya tomorrow!
