I'm Tweet on You

Happy Tuesday! It's been an eventful past few days.Doctor's appointments , tests and more snow and ice. And a warm up today and tomorrow. A much needed respite from all the cold and ice. But they keep telling us not to get used to it. I am grateful for whatever warmth comes out way. Of course now flooding is a concern. We've already had a flooded garage but if the ice and snow continue to melt that will actually make the garage drier. It the ice build up that's backing the water into the garage.
Last Friday I had 2 doctor's appointments. And today I had two sets of x-rays and 2 ultra sounds. I'm kind of tired of being poked and prodded. My hip has been giving me trouble so the doc ordered x-rays. Unfortunately I fell on ice on Saturday which made it worse so I am anxious to see what the x-rays show. I am hoping that I won't be on crutches. Nothing back yet of course. I am hoping by the end of the week.
My card tonight is a shaped card for a swap. This was fun to make. And I couldn't decide which sentiment to put on it because I found a bunch that I could use. I finally decided on this one.

The image is a pre-colored image from Doodle Pantry. Just love the beautiful peacock tail with all the eyes. I used the Spellbinder's heart shapes to cut the sentiment from Scribbles by Sandy. And I stamped a few hearts on the birdhouse base. It was really fun to make and I hope my swap partner likes it.

I am entering these challenges:
Thanks for stopping today. Gotta get a moving tonight and get some other things accomplished. Take care!

A wonderful shaped card with a sweet message and makes me look forward to spring- when the birds will be more colorful than the winter birds we have now : ) I sure hope the hip heals quickly- take it easy!

Instant love for this darling card....definitely I wish to case it...ahh Spring is around the corner I hope. We had snow...very rare...4 days ago and today it will be 74. We have strange winter weather here to the point we have to keep Spring and winter clothes out for a very long time during the winter. My gosh...keep us in touch with your weather and your hip...soooo sorry!
