Love Nest ATC

Ahh, another tiring Saturday! I worked last night and didn't get home 'til around 2:30 am. Could not for the life of me settle down and finally fell asleep around 6 am. My DD and I had tickets for the Huntsville Symphony Orchestras family series and it was wonderful! The music surrounded an animal theme and not only was the music beautifully played by the very talented HSO but there were costumed players and interaction for the kids. Following this we stopped by the lss and picked up an a muse special order that had come in yesterday- can't wait 'til I get time to play with those. Finally, we went to a local gift shop where my daughter wanted to purchase some more Bella Sara trading cards (horse trading cards that have an interactive website for girls.) Unfortunately, the store closed early on Saturday (4pm) so we ended up at our local Hallmark store for a new Webkinz (okay, my Canadian readers- someone up there is laughing all the way to the bank on that one.) All and all, a most wonderful mother-daughter day but when I got home, I made it to the bed and collapsed! So after that nap and some delivery pizza, I am somewhat rejuvenated and ready to post. Here is another project that I have recently made using Flourishes- Love Notes. These are for a SWAP which Tracy Durcan hostessed over on her blog Durcan Designs. I love the clean lines and simple elegance of Tracy's creations and if you have not had a chance to visit her blog, you are in for a treat! My color combo was inspired by the beautiful Memory Box PP, Aerial. The sweet little love birds were stamped and colored with Copic markers then cut out and adhered to a More Mustard CS Nestabilities scalloped circle. The little bow was stamped in Almost Amethyst then cut out and added to the cage. The sentiment is from Crafty Secrets Bird Notes and the little safety pin is MM. Ribbon is May Arts. It is all adhered to a Almost Amethyst ATC that I ran through the Cuttlebug using the new Swiss Dot Embossing Folder. Well, I'm going to go try to start relaxing so I can have a "normal" nights sleep! Hope everyone is having an awesome weekend. It's ALWAYS a Stampin' Good Time! Take care!

How adorable! I am coveting that swiss dot embossing folder. Of course I don't actually own a cuttlebug to use it with so...Anyway, fabulous ATC!
