MTS126 You're So Sweet

Happy Friday, peeps!  Yay, it's a holiday weekend here in the states as well!  I sat down last night and whipped up this sweet little card so quickly, it made my head spin!  I love it when things come together quickly!  I used the Match The Sketch sketch:

and some of the last few pieces of Sweet Li'l Things DSP I had in my stash:

Easy peasy!  I used a sentiment from the soon-to-be-retired All Boxed Up, stamped in Watermelon Wonder, and cut out a few strawberries to add as embellishments.  My horizontal banner is embossed with Softly Falling:

And on the inside, a sentiment from Cottage Greetings:

So happy you stopped by to visit today!

A pair of Carolina wrens decided to make a nest in a bird house that Cassidy's daddy made for her:

I got a chuckle as some of the nesting material didn't quite fit through the hole!  But they persevered, and have established a surprisingly large nest inside.  It is in our flower garden right outside our door, so I am sure we'll see activity when and if they lay seems they may make two or three nests before deciding on exactly where to settle down!  Cassidy took a peek inside while they were off scouting the neighborhood!

We'll keep you posted!

Darling, truly sweet card, LeAnne! Congrats on the Carolina Wrens! Oh do I love the jaunty slant of their tails! Enjoy the long weekend!

LeAnne, what a great set of photos. I know what you mean about their long sticks and small holes. We watch the male for hours going backwards and forwards before he finally gets it in. Gorgeous card, too! I love the layers of texture you created and the single pop of color is perfect
