Sweet Birds & Bird Houses

Hi friends! I hope your week is starting out great. Today I completed a huge project at work...a program description proposal which was over 50 pages. I wasn't the only one writing; there were lots of folks that contributed, but I was in charge of pulling it all together & making sure all the required elements were met. I put in lots of extra hours as this means a lot to our company. So it is such a relief to have this done & to have beat the submission deadline by 7 hours. So...my week is starting out great.

But I bet you didn't come here to hear about my work...I'm glad you stopped to see my card creation. I made this for a new challenge to me called A La Card Monkey. They usually have sketch plus one other requirement. A few times ago there was a sketch plus to add cupcake(s). But this week, it is just a sketch & anything goes. The reason I like this challenge blog is because I love all the sketches.Here is this week's sketch:

I have a few close-ups for you so you can see these little dimensional stickers from Michael's Recollections collection. I thought they were just adorable. The paper is SU! Cheerful treat paper & the ribbon is SU! Pretty in Pink taffeta. The button is from my stash & as was the twine.


 thanks so much for visiting! I always appreciate your kind words!
