Tweet, Tweet

Tweet, Tweet - Mother's Day already, well actually they celebrate Mother's day early than we do in England. I am the lone Yank (LOL) on Craft Your Days Away, so it is time to do Mother's Day cards. Plus it is always good to be early on our card making.

My DP is Basic Gray's, Cappella. Everything was inked with Forest Moss distress inks. I had some brown lace in my stash, so used it.
My flower is a stem that I trimmed off a bush. I recently bought Spellbinders foliage dies and this was my first chance to use it. I love how it embosses. I recently did a pin swap and this was one of the pins that I made for the love theme swap. The bow was tied with a Bow Easy.
We are sponsored by Meljens and she provided us with this sweet little bird and cage. I colored it with Copics and Spica's. I added Stickles to the leaves and birds wing. The image is cut with Stampin Ups Framelits.

Thanks for stopping by and please visit Meljen our sponsor.
