Love birds

When I first saw this FAB sketch over at "The Sugar Bowl" I thought it was itchin' to have a lil secret message...and wouldn't you know that valentine's is just around the corner.....the perfect time for secret notes.....and so my idea began!!

I used one of my new images "Winter Birds".....I love it and wanted a few nice images so that i can get cracking away at my christmas cards all year instead of leaving it all to the last minute!! But i think this image is also perfect for valentines.

I coloured Winter Birds with my Prisma colours, used some Making Memories, Rouge (from a 6x6 pad), a few Prima blooms, not sure who the brads or photo turn are from - sorry! The Love Birds sentiment is off an acrylic plate by American Crafts.
The inside sentiment is an A Muse stamp - it actually reads "you make life sweet"...but i didn't ink the s and then wrote the wobbly T (with a fine line pen) to make "tweet" instead....i was happy with the results!! And it means I am ahead of the game for once...WOW! bx
PS Don't forget to join my Sugar Nellie candy!
