Newton's Nook Designs' May Release ~ Day 1


Welcome to the first day of Newton's Nook Designs' May Release!  Jen has a sweet set with wreathes of a variety of styles for all kind of occasions -- introducing 'Happy Little Thoughts': 


and its purr-fectly coordinating dies:


I saw the twiggy looking wreath and instantly envisioned a little birdie nest there, so I borrow the birdies from 'Tweet Talk' and some light blue pearl 'eggs' and created this card:

Enjoy the Little Things Bird Nest card by Crafty Math Chick | Happy Little Thoughts & Tweet Talk stamp sets by Newton's Nook Designs

The card base is Soft Sky (I love the look of red with light blue lately!) and created the little nest by cutting little twigs out free hand from some brown cardstock scraps.  This card speaks to me because I enjoy birdwatching and have several feeders around our property to lure my little feathered friends to our yard so I can watch them.  So, this is one of the 'little things' I enjoy.  It can be tricky trying to explain to the neighbors that my binoculars are solely for the purpose of birdwatching, LOL!, but hopefully they believe me because it is the truth.

This is such a sweet card. I love the bird nest and the sweet little bird perched on the sentiment! I agree - bird watching is super fun, especially trying to figure out what kind of birds you're seeing!
