Love Birds here at last!

Ok, I know I have to stop griping about the post in Canada. But to quote someone: "Don't they realize how desperately we need our stuff?!!!". You know its slow when you want to start stalking the Postman. Ok, on to other stuff. If you haven't all ready, sign up for my Blog Candy down below. Drawing will take place Monday Morning. I'm letting my daughter pick, because It is so hard to decide, I want all your wonderful ideas to win. So at least this way I can't be blamed! For this Card, I used my long awaited, very versatile, and oh so Stinkin Cute, CCdesign stamps from the set "love Ya Much". These stamps along with its sister set are my favorite, oh ya and the penguin's, and the ......ok, never mind. I love them all. Christine the designer of these stamps just rocks!!
recipe:
stamps: CCdesign Love ya Much
Paper : SU Bali Breeze DP, Soft Sky, Groovy Guava, Pomegranate, and Stamper Select White CS
Ink: Stewart Superior Hybrid black, Ranger Distress: Broken China, Shabby Shutter, Tea Dye, Vintage, Mahogany, Olive Ink, Pomegranate
Other: Faber Castel and Prismacolor pencils, Twinkling H2O's, Copic C-1, Copic sketch pen, Quickutz tag, Nestabilities rectangle scallop and regular, SU ribbon and cording, white gel pen, fruit punch stickles.
I've been trying to copy a bit of Ila's coloring style! Haven't quite got it yet, but hopefully practice makes perfect. Leaves are hand sketched, and everything else is self explanatory. Oh ya and look below and see how awesomely these stamps arrive. Already mounted and ready to use. I love not having to mount!
Have a great day, and see y'all later!

Wonderful stamps. Maybe I should try something else than Magnolia and hAnglar for a change.... I really like your colouring, you are very good at it.
