A little bit of green goes a long way





Just a quick Monday night post, it has not stopped raining the whole day, one thing good is that it wasn't like this on the weekend, I don't mind when its bad weather during the week as all I am doing is going to work. Today I worked a long day but it was alright, the customers on the whole weren't too bad. Another long day tomorrow so I will go to bed early tonight.

Ok, these two birds were stamped green about six months ago, I had plans of using it on another project that just didn't happen. On Saturday night when I was thinking up an idea to do for the colour splash challenge I saw these two birds lying on my desk and this simple idea came to me straight away. I drew the simple hill, the spotted hearts were traced from the hollow love heart in the birds and the sentiment was printed on my PC. I didn't want both birds to be the same green and so re stamped one of the birds with a darker green. I am really happy that I got to use these litte birds at last, I guess I just needed the right project.

The challenges I have included-
PDCC-#83
Less is more-Pick a square

I was chosen as part of the fab 4 for this card over at The play date cafe

This looks terrific. To use the heart shape again from the wings of the birdies was inspired!
