Robin's nest on my front porch

I just wanted to post a quick picture of the robin's nest that a bird has made on top of some fake hydrangeas hanging in my front porch - very cute!

Well, I finally had time to make a project for PTI's Make-It-Mondays challenge - I actually got so inspired after making my first card that I made a second!

This was my first card - I used the Mat Stack 1 die and the Background Basics: Diamonds impression plate and spring moss paper; the Mat Stack 2 die to cut Hibiscus Burst cardstock; the label is from the PTI free label set from earlier this year, spring moss buttons and sweet blush card base.

For this card, I used my woodgrain impression plate, applied ink to the impression plate using a brayer, set a couple of leaf print dies and the label die from Friendship Jars.  I then stamped the leaves using some Twinkling H20's - my first attempt at using Twinkling H20's and I really like them!
