Sweet Tweets

Hello, and Happy Monday.
Hope you all had a great weekend.
Mine was very busy.  We postponed
celebrating Easter with the kids and grandkids
because my hubby was sick last weekend.
So we had all the kids and grandkids over
yesterday.  We bbq'd and did our easter egg hunt
plus we celebrated my granddsughter's
 and son-in-law's birthdays.  Plus my car has been in
 and out of the shop for  the last two weeks and the bad news
on that is I have to take it back again tomorrow! 
UGGGHHHH!!
Anyway, I have another card to share with you.


I made this cute little card using another one of the
Peachy Keen Cottage Cutz dies.  It is called
Happy Bird.  The umbrella is from the
Duck Accessories Die Set.
The white layer is cut from the
Spellbinders Fleur Di Lie Rectangles Die.
I added some Nestabling from Want to Scrap.
It is hard to see, but I also added some
clouds to the white background using
a stamp from the Peachy Keen
February 2012 Stamp of the Month Kit.
It is the stamp for the foam from the beer!!




Here is a close up of the sweet little bird.
I added some chalk to add some detail  to the her.

My sentiment is from the Peachy Keen June 2012 SOTM kit.
It is stamped onto a Spellbinders Ribbon Banners Die.
I inked it with Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers.
I added some glitter tulle and a vintage button from
3 Girl Jam with a little twine.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

I am entering this into the following challenges:
