OCC Challenge... Love Birds!

Morning everyone! I'm sorry I didn't post yesterday as the day got away on me. I finished my OCC Challenge card last night... late and was to sleepy to post! OCC is giving you a chance to win a NEW custom banner & watermark!!! (I could use that!!) Any, who, how have you been? It's warming up in Minnesota so that's a big plus... :)

For my card today I used SU! Love you Much set. I just got my Valentine Bundle from SU! this past Friday and sure love the DP!!! I used my SU! Top Note die to add a "frame" in the background, I did some paper piecing on the 2 birds, added my K&Company Pillow Heart stickers, and used a flower button which is postioned past the Nesties Scallop die to give a 3-D effect. I love the little extras to a card!! He.. He!

Have a super fun day stampers and thanks for the visit!!! I hope you have a chance to play along on the challenge... enjoy... get some stamping time in!

Hello my sweet cyber buddy! What a cute card! You totally nailed the sketch.

I made a card the other night but haven't photographed or posted it yet... seems like there's been something going on every night this week. Nothing exciting, just getting myself organized. I have my monthly stamp club tonight, so that will be fun. I hope to get back to posting this weekend.

I'm glad it's warming up for you! Have a great day!

Such a cute card! The polka dot birds...LOVE 'EM! I need to start working on my Valentine's.

Sorry it took me a little while to get back with you! I did make the quilt in my crafting room! The chenille cloth hanging behind was from an auction. The nightstand (I admit it) was picked off the curb! The chair came from a garage sale, paid $2 and covered it with blue ticking I bought at a garage sale! Funny as I type this to realize how I've accumulated all my treasures!

What a fun card, Michelle. I love the whole card and the paper piecing and the red heart and flower are the perfect embellishments too!
