Paper Sweeties May Release Day 3


It's day 3 of the Paper Sweeties May Release. That means the new stamps are officially in the Paper Sweeties Store for sale!  Today I'm showing you the "Sending Springtime" set.  This set features a birdhouse and bird along with sweet sentiments about home like the one I used on my card.  One of the things I love about spring is that I can hear the birds singing in the morning again as they usher in a brand new day.  I have a little bird house in the back yard and always keep an eye on it in the spring looking to see who will make a home of it!  So far no takers, but this cute little bird keeps me hopeful!
Even though I adhered the bird and house with adhesive foam dots, this one still looked a little flat to me.  I thought the buttons with pearl toppers added the right amount of dimension and bling to this one. 

Check out what the rest of the design team made with the new releases.   Just click on their names below!


 Tomorrow we'll be wrapping up the new releases with a mix of the old sets and the new sets!  I hope you'll stop by for a visit!  Have a beautiful day!

That is the cutest birdhouse...looks so good on the tree branch and leaves. It looks popped up to me...I could tell right away. The three little flowers with pearls look so nice, especially with the neat striped paper you used to photograph your card with.

I love your papers and how gorgeous the birdhouse stands out! I love the way you composed your card!

I honestly never have known anyone who has had a bird take up quarters in a birdhouse. Keep me posted because that would be soooo cool! I love hearing them in the morning now too. I miss seeing them at my bird feeder out my bay window. Now that winter is over, they have so much to feed on. They don't visit me as often.

Jeanne, another sweet card. It really makes me wish for nicer weather and beautiful colors around with all the flowers blooming. Too cute.
