Little bird nest

Good evening!  I spent the day home today... in the hopes of feeling better.  I slept later in... that helped and at least while working I was in my pjs and didn't have to drive in to work.  And I also didn't talk so that really really helped my coughing!  I have to remember not to talk when I go back to work tomorrow!

I have a little card to share with you that I made over the weekend.. because again this week the energy as not been there to craft :(  That's how bad I was feeling... when I don't craft I know something is wrong!
So I made something new, I've been wanting to try to make a shadow box and that's what I did with my Cameo.  I adjusted the size to fit into a 6x6 envelope when it's folded.

I used a great image Little bird nest from Just some lines since I've been meaning to play with them ;o)  And I made it to fit for Valentine's day in my favorite colors for the occasion, pink and red.  I also didn't use any DP since I wanted to enter the challenge over at Robyn's Fetish.

I really loooove the look of this new card. The only problem is that there's no way to put a sentiment... so I made a pocket in the back for it.  I used my label 1, scallop and large circles from spellbinder.  I added some foam hearts.

Here's a closer look at the digi colored with my copics.  The awesome sentiment is from Create with TLC
And here's the back of the card where you can see I used my MS border punch and I added a little ribbon to pull it.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Just some lines blog - Favorite color combo - pink and red for Valentine's day ;)
  2. Robyns fetish challenge blog - No pattern paper
  3. Whimsy inspires - Something new - making a shadow box
  4. Die cuttin divas - Out with the old in with the new - old is the label 1 from Spellbinder, and the new is the file for the shadow box from Silhouette
  5. Stamp-n-doodle - Use an animal
That's it for me for tonight!  I'm off to bed and I really hope that I get a good night sleep and wake up all healthy lol



  1. So pretty and vibrant with the red and pink.
    I really hope that the day at home helped a bit and that you are starting to get better.
