Newton's Nook Designs' October Release ~ Holiday Tweets

Welcome to the third day of Newton's Nook Designs' Holiday Release (sorry I missed the first few days - I am still recovering from that spinal fusion I had and Jen & Jeff were generous enough to give me some additional time to recuperate).  Today's 'tweet' little set will delight bird enthusiasts and is perfect for the welcome to the neighborhood, congratulations on your new home and holiday cards alike -- introducing Holiday Tweets:  

(I KNOW!  Isn't it the cutest?!!)  I decided to use the largest image in the set combined with some birdie themed papers from Echo Park's 'North Pole' stack to create this holiday card (I will admit, I am WAY behind this year - I usually have about 90 cards made by now; I only have two - EEK!!)

Merry Christmas Birdies Ornament Shapes Christmas card by Crafty Math Chick | Holiday Tweets stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs

I tried to color the birdies like their cardstock counterparts using my Copic markers, and tried to match the ornaments to the leaves.  I really do adore this set.  (I am a big bird lover and have lots of feeders in my yard so I have the pleasure of seeing these little guys from time to time.  Living in Virginia I am currently being totally spoiled since the state bird (actually Virginia is a Commonwealth) is the cardinal and we have TONS of those beautiful feathered babies everywhere out there.  They look so vibrant against the snow in the winter - I just LOVE it!!
