So Tweet!

Pin It Hello and happy weekend!  Hope yours is off to a great start!

I just got the cutest stamp set from Papertrey Ink called Tweet Talk and I'm happy to say -- I'm in love!   Seriously.  Had to ink it up -- and fast!  So I decided I'd play in my first-ever ColourQ challenge....  I saw the colors for this week's challenge and, more importantly, this card by Arielle and knew I would want to throw my hat card in the ring!  (And how perfect that this week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is "Feathered Friends!")  :)

Here's my take:

Isn't that chubby little bird the cutest thing you ever saw?!?
I knew from the start what I wanted my sentiment to be -- problem was, I didn't have the stamps for it.... so -- I cut up a couple I do have...  I cut the "be" off a "just because" stamp and the "you" off a "thank you" stamp and then used a set of Hero Arts alphabet stamps for the "fabulous..."  Anyway, I got what I wanted in the end and I'm pretty darn pleased with the result!  :)

And a peek at the challenges this card was inspired by:

Hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by!  Let me know what you think!  :)

And Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there -- hope y'all have a great day filled with love and laughter (and breakfast in bed!)!  :)
