You're so Tweet!!

Hello everyone!!! I have been working in the yard early in the morning because by 10:00 it's already in the high 90's and remember those tomato plants I told you about?? The birds found them and pecked holes is several...GRRRRR!!!! I threw a couple of sheets over them so I hope that keeps those pesky old birds away!!!

I found some time yesterday afternoon to play along in the Ways to Use it Challenge on Splitcoast. The challenge was to use heat embossing...I have not embossed anything for quite a while!!! I used Ranger Tinsel Embossing powder on the frame and the chipboard button was embossed with white opaque ep. The birdhouse and the tiny birds from Clear Dollar Stamps A Tweet Hello set were colored with copics and I did a little sewing along the sides.
Recipe:
Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps A Tweet Hello
Paper: White, Stampin Up! dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Nestabilities, Ranger Tinsel ep, White Opaque ep, Sewing Machine, EK Success Scalloped Border Punch, Ribbon, Die-namics Ric Rac Die


Thanks for stopping by this morning...Mom and I are going to the grocery store a little later. I'm all out of chocolate and that makes for a very cranky stamper...LOL!!!!

It's time I catch up with my favorite bloggers, and when I get to your blog I'm always like a kid in a candy store! So much creativity! So many stamps and embellies I now want! And so many cards I want to case! ;)

You're an inspiration!

This is precious.. You did a great job on the embossing.. I have been so lucky in my garden.. Not pests yet.. I pick my tomatoes a little early and let them ripen in the house.. Have a great weekend.

This is a cute, cute card! Love the birdies and the shiny frame! -- We put bright red Christmas balls on the ground near our tomato plants and the birds left our tomatoes alone!

This is so precious. I love your little tweets. Great job with the embossing too. Lovely details. I read somewhere about your unscheduled stop here in the Phoenix area. I only wish I had known. It would have been my pleasure to rescue you from the airport and put you up. You absolutely must call me if that should ever happen again. Hugs, Mel
