Happy Together

I just got the Happy Together stamp set the other day.  It's not normally the kind of stamp set I would pick, but I'm trying to broaden my stamping horizons and I've got to admit that it's awfully cute.  It certainly came in handy with the latest Paper Players challenge.

I of course, checked out the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and found it too adorable to pass up.  I don't know what it is about these sketch challenges, but they always seem to inspire me to make something fun!

I didn't buy any new Valentine's dp this year and I'm generally ok with that (although I've seen some adorable projects with the Love Impressions dp that's in the mini).  So I have to resort to using last year's Sending Love paper.

These little birdies are so cute!  And look how the first one is looking back so adoringly at the other one!  I'm a bit of a bird-watcher so it's a little surprising that I don't use more birds on my cards.  I'll have to think about rectifying that! 

Yesterday I put on my snow shoes and had a little mini-trek out to my bird feeders to fill them up.  As we get closer to spring I'm really looking forward to seeing the birds change at the feeders as the spring migration gets underway.  Maybe I'll get a little inspiration from that!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!

I'm happy to see that dsp again Jen, it was one of my favorites & I've missed it!! The little birdies are adorable too. I got out of the shower yesterday morning and heard birds chirping, it gave me such hope that spring must be coming :) Thanks for playing along with The Paper Players this week!

The papers work beautifully with those adorable birds. And what a great choice of sentiment! It's great that you look after the birds. I bet you'll be glad to see the back of that snow!
