Love Sweet Love

Hiya!!  It’s getting closer to Valentine’s day!  Yippie!!  You know what that means…. pink, pink, and more pink!  :)  Here is my latest birdhouse- made just for the occasion!

Such sweet Pinkness!!

Ahh.. my love affair with rhinestones will never end!  Lol :)  And glitter, and birds, and feathers, and posies…  :)  If you are interested, she’s for sale in my store at http://splendidlysweet.com.

In honor of love, I also made this card for Matt’s cousin, Kim’s, bridal shower.

Yes.. I know, not pink!  But her save the date was in red and white, so I figured she at least *liked* those colors!  :) 

Originally, I had only had the felted swirls with the medallion in the center, but Matt said it looked too plain.  I thought it was ok because I wanted the eye to be drawn to the medallion and the red paper is embossed…  But then I saw those pearls peeking through my desktop (which I TOTALLY have to blog about at a later date!!  I WON an EZ View desktop which I LOOOOOOOOVE!!!!) and I decided to do the 3 pearl deal.  Um, and then I got carried away and hand-stuck  (lol!) the tiniest pearls to the swirly parts of the felt!!  You might have to enlarge the picture to see, but it looks really pretty :)  I hope she likes the card! 

I also participated in a Swirly Love Tag swap in my ArtHaven group.  Now, this is Pink!!  :)

And blue!  My favs :)

Unfortunately, I had a little water accident and the rest of those paper roses like the on I used for this tag got ruined!!!!  I was so mad at myself!  That will teach me to have a glass of water on my desktop…  One bunch of these paper flowers was only $1 at the dollar store, but I’ve since gone back and they don’t have any anymore!!!  People are selling them online, but they’re going for like $2.50 plus shipping!  I hope the dollar store orders more of these!  So pretty! 

And I FINALLY found the right sized match boxes to alter for the match box swap…  it only took looking at like 5 different stores!!!!  Lol- I thought I was going to have to order them online.  However, I still haven’t been able to find a papier mache heart box that’s over 2”.  It’s getting close, so I might have to settle for a big round one…  :(  I guess if I can’t find one by the end of the week… You know me; nothing like waiting till the last minute!!

I hope you are in the middle of a splendidly sweet weekend!  Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Oh my, that bird is killing me! LOL! I'm not normally a "pink" person, but that birdhouse is something else. And I just love the expression on that bird's face. Love it!
