A Lil' Birdie Told Me!!

Happy Saturday Friends!  This will be super short for ya---you know I have my Open House today, so it's a busy, busy & fun day!  And they're calling for snow here in VA--you know what that means?  People running around like crazy to buy milk, bread & ice-melt like we're getting a blizzard & will be stuck in our homes for days, LOL!  We never get very much here & they're calling for 2 inches but nothing will stick to the warm roads, so it will be FINE people, hee hee!  The kids are just wishing it would happen during the week so that school would be delayed & closed & I'm just wishing for spring, LMBO!!  Hope you all have a good weekend & I will have lots & lots of pictures of everything to share with you next week!!


-I have another 2 cards that were published in the newest CardMaker Magazine--YAY!   I haven't gotten my mag in the mail yet so I haven't been able to see them, but I think they're on page 60 or there-abouts.  They're lil Smirk Girl cards I made a while back!  Hope you like them!!

-Susana's Custom Art & Card Design has SELECTED Spellbinder dies on SALE right now HERE!  Once they're gone, they're outta here!!!


Isn't this the cutest & prettiest lil' bird you evah did see?  I just adore this image from I Brake For Stamps called "Birdhouse" HERE!  (Remember to use the coupon code "SAVE10SUZANNE" to receive 10% off your entire order) I paired it up with some brand new spankin' papers from My Minds Eye called "Life Stories 1"--My Minds Eye is my MOST FAVORITE paper company I have to tell ya.  I love all their designs & have all of their collections, really wonderful IMO!!  And I love these new papers--so shabby chic & vintage looking! (I matched them up with PTI's Ocean Tides & Spring Moss cs).  The bow was made with my Bow Easy, and then I attached some pearl sprays (wedding supply store) and a Prima Pearl Center!  The sentiment is from PTI's "Vintage Picnic" set.

Close up shows all the fun details---I colored with Copics then used Liquid Pearls in "Platinum" to the berrys & swirls; Shimmerz (antique lace) on the flowers, Stickles on the leaves.  The papers were distressed with my Tonic Distress Tool.  I just love the way this turned out---so pretty!

Alrighty, I'm outta here---be back to visit with you on Monday!  Have a great weekend!
