HEARTFELT CREATIONS - JANUARY 30, 2013

I hope everyone is having a good week!  We are having another crazy weather week here in Indiana.  Last week with wind chills the temps were way below zero and here yesterday we had a thunderstorm and today the temperature is suppose to reach 60 degrees.  The weather here really keeps you on your toes!

Since it feels like Spring today I decided to show you a card that features a beautiful blue bird that I colored with Copics that uses Heartfelt Creations  HCPC 3511 - Melodious Songbird PreCut Set.  I just love the sentiment from this set and it goes just beautifully with the image!

Hi, Candy! Lovely card - so pretty with the blues. I especially like the way you have matched the leaves in your image with the leaves in the DP. We are having strange weather patterns, too, in central Florida. Our lows have been what our highs should be, and everything is blooming and pollinating because of it, a good two-three months early. Candy, how did you crumple your ribbon across the top? Is it adhered in several places? Looks amazing! Such a beautiful card!
