Love Bird All Occasion Card Set Part One

Hello my Dreamers!
I am back again to today with a sweet set of all occasion cards that I made for my "to send" box.  I made a total of six cards and will share them with you in two posts.  I made the cards with a cute Ippity (Unity) stamp set that I received from JenMarie who graciously sponsored Winter Sim's St Jude's Valentine's Day Card drive.   

 I stamped the birds with an orange Memento ink.   I used lots of DP from Cosmo Cricket.    The heart is part of the Ippity stamp set.  Here is a close up.  

And, a little peek at the inside.  The sentiment is also in the Ippity stamp set.  

And, I also made two more versions using  more of the Cosmo Cricket DP.  My Stamping buddy, Sharon bought this ribbon for me.  Isn't it pretty.


 Here is a close up of the ribbon accent and brad.  I used an idea from LeeAnne's blog about heating the ribbon with a heat gun to make it curl.  I love the crazy look.

Challenges for my set of Love Birds All Occasion cards:
Simon Says Stamp: three DP's
Scrap-creations: critters
Charisma Cardz: Love
Cute Card Thursday: winged things
Play Date Cafe: Color Challenge- baby blue, orange, and green (card #one)
Unity: hearts
AllSorts: anything goes
One Stop Craft: color on Kraft (cards #2 and 3)
Our Creative Corner:over the edge ( card #3)

Okay, I need to go and relax a bit.  Maybe watch a movie.  Hope you are having a great day.   Love ya.
