*Valentine Birdhouse and matching cards*

I just love making Valentine's Day projects. I guess it's the reds and pinks and all the hearts that I love so much.

This is one of those $1 mini birdhouses from Michaels that I covered with some Making Memories Love Notes paper. I added some Valentine picks to it as well as a bird that was white, that I had from a Christmas pick, which I covered in some Hotty Pink and Pink Poinsettia Shimmerz! Gotta love Shimmerz!! I also added a mini heart brad to the body of the bird. To finish off the birdhouse, I added a gingham bow and a Making Memories Love Notes Tag, which I also covered in some Pink Poinsettia Shimmerz.


For this card, I used the same MM paper and another tag, part of a Valentine pick from M's, more gingham ribbon and some heart gems and hemp cord.

And for this card, I used some of that yummy Sugared paper by Basic Grey. I used some more pieces of the Valentine pick, my new Inkadinkado stamps from my friend Christine, (Thanks Girl!! ;) and also a chipboard heart, which I covered in some more Pink Poinsettia Shimmerz and a pink heart gem. I stamped the bird and sentiment onto some vellum. And I used some red DCWV scalloped cs and some pink polka-dotted ribbon.
I hope that you all have a great day! I will be having ANOTHER GIVEAWAY soon! Yes, I said another one!! So stay tuned!!

Hugs,
