Love Birds!

Good morning! I've been catching up on a lot of card making over the weekend but did it in a strange kind of way - started several very diferent cards at the one time and befuddled myself by doing a bit here and a bit there.
Result...a pile of unfinished projects and only one complete card to show for it!
Well, this is it!!
The cute little Love Bird image was one which I drew at the weekend too and you can buy it HERE at A Passion for Stamps if you like. It's coloured with Promarkers and I added Stickles to the "heart" on their chests to highlight it. I've also used Glossy Accents on the beaks.
The hearts are from a Nellie Snellen die cut set and all the punches are by Tonic Studios.
I used the Border System , Edger 3 and Hearts Accent Punch for the bottom part and the Flower head plus the small flower from the Floral Border punch for the flowers at the top.

Don't forget about the chance to win one of the Tonic Studios punches. You can see the details HERE on Blog Tonic

 The giveaway of 5 Promarkers and 5 digi images is still running on A Passion for Stamps until Jan 31

The "Baker's Twine" was a little experiment. I have oodles and oodles of gorgeous coloured embroidery thread so, on a flying visit to Craftworld in Belfast on Saturday, I bought some white. I twirled the two colours together and added a little glue from a glue stick. It worked better then I expected so I'll definitely be making more colours.
