Happy Birthday

Hello!

Friday once again....woot woot! What's happening with you and yours this weekend? I've been seeing lots of vacation and poolside photos in blog land already!

I'm getting a little visitor today! :) Maybe you were visiting my blog a few weeks ago when I told you I get to babysit my girlfriend's baby hedgehog for three weeks? Little Benny is coming to stay today!  I'm so excited!


Isn't Benny the cutest little guy?!?! While he's here with me, I'll let you know what we're doing. Hedgehogs love to cuddle up so I'll probably let him make a little nest in my shirt while I sit and read. Can you believe these little guys like to swim? Yep, they float on their backs! :) Maybe we'll have to have a little dip? ;)

Okay, I got side tracked talking about little Benny! I have a card to share with you today!


This is another hybrid project, using an awesome new digital kit from Two Peas in a Bucket called 'Summer Meadow' by Chrissy W.


Oh how I adore this tweet little bird accent from the kit! I framed the feathered critter with a couple Spellbinders die cuts and then added a craft string, tulle and button bow along with a rub on sentiment.


These leaf springs are another lovely accent that I printed directly onto my card stock. Then I printed a couple swatches of patterned paper to stitch to the card. Fun and easy!

Supplies:

Card Stock:  Neenah Paper
Digital Kit:  Summer Meadow by Chrissy W.
Circle Dies:  Spellbinders
Button:  Stampin' Up!
Craft String:  DMC
Rub-On Sentiment:  Scrapworks
Sewing Thread:  Coats & Clark
Tulle:  Stash
