Big Hugs

Hello peeps!  I hope you're having a fantastic Monday ... I know, if you work then Mondays probably aren't your favorite day.  But if you're a SAHM then you probably love Mondays ... shove those kiddies out the door and back to school lol!

Don't these birdies look like they're soooo in love?  Some close friends of ours will be celebrating their wedding anniversary at the end of this month and I thought this would make a cute anniversary card for them.  The image is Birds Couple by The Paper Shelter.  I colored these cuties with copics and colored pencils and added some Glossy Accents to their beaks and claws.  I used stickles on the heart and the little flowers in the tree.  I've added some flowers with little tiny buttons and some ribbon with a bow.  My sentiment is computer-generated.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow as Ladybug Crafts Ink will be having a blog hop to celebrate a new stamp release.  There will be prizes so you don't want to miss it!

Thank you for stopping by for a visit.
