A Tweet Hello!

What a wild ride our Wisconsin weather has been!  Last week we were getting wind chills that put us at over 20 below 0, and yesterday our temperatures were in the 40s and 50s.  We would have been buried in snow again if it hadn't been so warm.  It definitely felt more like March than January yesterday, but today we are forecast to have rain changing to snow with 5-8" snow predicted.  Ariel and the dogs will be happy to have a fresh batch of snow on the ground!

I just love it when I sit down with a sketch, and I know exactly which papers I want to use, and I even have some scraps that are nearly the right size for my card.  That's what happened for me on this little bird card, and despite the layering, it came together really quickly for me.  I started with Julee's Mojo Monday sketch #275 and turned it sideways.

I used some My Mind's Eye dps from a big 12" x 12" stack that weren't too large in scale for my little birdie.

I did just a little sponging on the sentiment as I thought the all white was a little too stark against my background papers.  I just love that little birdie peeking out of his house!  It's kind of how I've felt the past few days going outside, checking to see if it is still raining before venturing outdoors.
