Atlantic Hearts 146 - Hoppy Birdy

Loving the sketches at Atlantic Hearts - so much so that I am staying very true to them! This one had me thinking about an upcoming birthday... and the individual has a good sense of humour, so I decided to capitalize on that. The Penelope paper pack has gorgeous colours for spring and there is a beautiful sheet covered with birds that gave me the idea for this card. I used part of one of the Picture My Life cards for the bottom of my card. The rest of it was cut from the Cricut and the sentiment was stamped - a perfect fit for the card! 
I am also going to add this card to the Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week, even though I am on the design team there, as Penelope is my favourite current paper pack.

  1. Hi Alyson, Penelope is the only set of CTMH that I have so far and again you have looked into my work space and seen what I am working on! Do you have a camera hidden somewhere? :D

    This card is fabulous for the AHSC challenge! And, again, I will resort to Plan B and change direction. Seriously, your card is beautifully designed, as always...

  2. Oh so DARLING!!!! Love the cheery look of this card and the birdies are the perfect touch. TYFS!

  3. Alyson, I love everything you create--you rock!!

  4. This is totally adorable- that bird paper always makes me smile when I see it!

  5. Penelope is awesome! I was playing with it this weekend and everyone was just loving it right along with me! Great card Alyson! Thanks for playing along with Heart 2 Heart Challenges (H2H)!
