Tweet Birthday

Hello there!

I can't even believe it, but it's supposed to be eighty degrees here on Friday. Wow.
At least we're pretty much guaranteed no snow for Easter. ;)

Had so much fun making this card, and used the following challenges for inspiration. :)

2S4Y (loved the sketch, gals!), Caardvarks, Cuttlebug Spot, Little Red Wagon and then for two non-challenge blog challenges (which I LOVE to participate in!), Lucy's challenge and Nina's challenge.

I believe this is just my second time using lace, but this time, it's not white...

Here's that adorable, sweet little birdy

I sewed the Crate paper since the sewing machine is fixed, and left a stitch on the end of each line just for something different. After adding a small square of blue Crate paper, I adhered the lace, and then tied the bow. Stamping the sentiment was next, then stamping and cutting out the little HA bird. Added the pearls for the finishing touch.
I don't know if you noticed, but this is my first time using that HA bird - I will have used up all my HA stamps, {and completed my self imposed challenge} at least once in no time!

This is my last post till Monday, so have a blessed Easter!
