Memory Box Love Birds

Good Morning Ladies,
I have not been very good at keeping my blog updated as of late. I have no reason for this. But it looks like I will be getting back into the swing things.
I went to a local crop this weekend. I wasn't very productive but I did create a shadow box, three finished cards and one card panel. Maybe I was more productive than I thought.
It was good to see everyone at the crop. January can be a long month in Northern Indiana, so this crop came at just the right time.
I must confess I took a trip out to http://www.atjoansgardens.com/ before I went to the crop. And wow did I pick up some wonderful new dies by memory box. So pretty much that is what I played with. Yes also my La Blanche stamps and paper. I stocked up on the La Blanche paper while I was a Joan's too.
Here is one of the cards I made with three of my new dies....
This card features a heart tree topper die. It cuts your top layer of paper. You then just place the color of cardstock you want your hearts to be underneath. The tree trunk is it's own die. I cut this from brown cardstock and nested it in the heart tree topper. The topper comes in designs other than hearts. My two little love birds is another memory box die that I cut with sparkle paper and non sparkle paper. With birds the boys are always prettier than the girls. I haven't figured that one out yet...LOL. I had my friend cut the grass on her cricut. I now have to go and get a grass die from Joan. To finish this card off I added a ribbon to the bottom.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog

Very cute card, I love all the dies and stamps that Joans Garden has as well -thanks for telling me about her. A crop good for you - wish I had known being stuck inside is a drag.
