You're So Tweet

I have had this image printed and sitting on my desk for a few weeks. I loved it the second I saw it but I just haven't had time to sit down and color it. So finally, over the long holiday week end, I was able to pull it out and make a card with it.





Aren't these birds cute? Originally the sentiment was supposed to say "Home Tweet Home" so I could sent it to my aunt and uncle who just bought a new home. Well, I don't have a craft area. So right when I was in the middle of "crafting" I had to clean off an spot on the kitchen table so I could give my daughter lunch. When I went back to my card, I could not find the sentiment. I tore everything apart looking for it but could not find it. My hubby even looked in the garbage for me. (Isn't he sweet? I gave him a kiss for that....after he washed his hands....and showered in Lysol....) I still couldn't find it so I went with "You're So Tweet!". Of couse when I was cleaning up when I finished the card, I found the sentiment stamp in my button container. Grrrrr... At least it wasn't lost for good.
