Birthday Fun with Birdie Hearts!

Hello bloglandia! Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We were super busy here with DS#2's birthday party, and today went a bit off the rails for me too playing catch up (hence the EVENING blog post!).

One thing I did on Sunday morning while all of my boys were at TrainFest was COLOR and craft!! It was fabulous as I hadn't even set foot into my stamp room in a WEEK. I had some images printed from my digi stash last month, and I picked up this sweet bird from Sami Stamps first. This one is called Birdie Hearts.


I used a sketch for this project, from Creative Inspirations #335, and the color combo from Card Mania #74:
 

I printed this sweetie pie on PaperTrey white and colored with with Copics. Die cut a tag and used a heart eyelet to go with the heart string she's holding. I wanted a bluebird, so I based my color palette off those colors as naturally as I could. With pink hearts, of course!

I played along with both Lacy Sunshine's and Melonheadz Friends Tic Tac Toe for this card:
