Love/Valentine ~ For You

Oh my goodness where has January gone?
I hope that your weather clears up real soon if you are in the midst of a storm.
We have been unusually dry this month.
The rain is coming back today. not sure how I feel about that.
It has been nice to have dry weather but we need the rain, too.
I started again with a sketch.
I've done this one before and returned to it
because it was a fun one to add lots of layers and elements.
I added little hearts from the border die to the twig in the bird's mouth
and floating around their heads.
I just love these cute little critters.
{Shh don't tell anyone they were from a Christmas set}


*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Animals from the Christmas Friends stamp set from Penny Black.
*Sentiment from the No Matter What stamps set from Verve Stamps.
*Heart border and tiny hearts cut using a die from the Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set from Verve.
*Large heart cut using the Classic Hearts die set from Spellbinders
*Design paper from the DCWV Girl frille paper pad.
*Copic markers R83, C-3, BV23, E13 and E21.
*Lace from simplicity.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad.
*CTHM Heather stamp pad.

May your day always be filled with love.
