How Tweet It Is

Busy day today. Everyone had a question at work and I couldn't get away from just putting out fires all day. I don't feel like I get anything accomplished that way. The project I am working on is going to take me months so I guess one day isn't going to make that big of a difference. Beautiful weather today. Not terribly humid or hot. We had the windows open in the office and there was a nice breeze. Everyone else has their air conditioning on but I love having the breeze. Not too many people come to visit because they say it's too hot in my office. Works for me. LOL!


I really like my card tonight. I love the soft colors and the cute image. The image is from From the Heart called Apple Blossom Birds. I colored the image with Copic Markers and added a sentiment from a Gina K stamp set. It was called Heartily Yours but I no longer see it on the web site. I used the sketch from i {heart} card sketches with a twist #114. The twist is to use water color so I water colored the background and used washi tape to finish off the sketch.


I made the card a 4x4 square. I don't often make square cards but I think it turned out rather cute. This is an anniversary card that I sent to my friends. The die cut is a new one that I just got from My Favorite Things. It's from the Inside Outside Stitched Rounded Square Stax. I just love some of the new dies that I just got. I'm sure you will be seeing more very soon.
I am entering these challenges:
Hope your Tuesday has been lots of fun. I am off to work on the organization of my dies. It's going to be a while until I get everything organized but every little bit helps. Have a super Wednesday and see you again soon.
