hello, friend

Hi there! First, thank you all for all of the well wishes and emails. I am feeling almost back to normal. Of course, my baseline normal may differ from the normal person. :)

Today, I am back with colors and a stamp set that I did not know I loved. Truly..when I first saw these colors at Color Throwdown, I was terrified.

 I am so not a "brights" person and I had no idea how I could work these colors to be more me. Well, I think I have something I can really love. I also never really love love loved Little Bitty Bird from Papertrey. I liked what I saw others do with it, but it was never calling to me until a week or so ago. I started seeing so many cute cards with it and thought I would give it a shot. I adore it! Those little birds are so sweet and I really like popping up the little wings. I decided to use this week's Mojo Monday as my jumping off point.

It's also going into this week's Wee Memories Challenge which was "Anything Goes!"

But enough talk, here is my card:

Hope you like it! I added a couple of diecut hearts in the patterned papers and threw in a little crochet trim I picked up at Two Peas in a Bucket a while back and voila! :) 

Have a great day!

This is some kinda fun! All your layering is a nice treat... the bird's wing makes me smile. SUPER cute, Keva!

P.S. The mere mention of tangerine makes me want to run and hide. ;)

This is so adorable, Keva!! I love how you used the circles as a scalloped border and your little bird is just too cute! (Thanks for catching our little faux pas with the FS!! It's fixed now!)
