Well bless your nest

     I think it bears repeating again that I am soooo ready for spring.  That's when all the little peeps like this one will be hatching and happily tweeting away.
     I hope you've gotten a chance to play along with the new challenge at SugarPea Designs.  Maybe my card can help inspire you.  I've used part of the main stamp image from the "Tweet Friend" stamp set.


     This card was actually my second attempt.  My first card is below.  I just felt like it was too plain so I started over.  I think it would have looked better with the bunnies either recessed or popped up.

     For this card I used the "One Big Hoppy Family" stamp set.

Bean Stalk Collection - One Big Hoppy Family

     Hope you have a wonderful Monday!
