You're Always in my Heart

 

Hello everyone!  We're enjoying another snowy weekend and it's just beautiful out!  I've been taking pictures of the birds at the feeder and huddled together on the snow ladened tree branches!  Then I looked at the IC on SCS and the Etsy sit Geninne's Art Store was all about birds. I used many of the birds for inspiration but I loved the red berries on this on e(#10on this pg.).  I decided to make a masculine gift box for my hubby for Valentines Day, using this Able Gable Box template from Leigh Ann Baird.  I also used the Chickadee stamp from the Our Daily Bread designs new release, You Will Find Refuge.  I paired that with a Studio G sentiment and a hand written tag.  The dp is from a new K&Co pad and the base is Kraft, sponged on all panels with THoltz Walnut Stain Ink.  I colored the bird just a tad with Prisma Pencils.  These new images are so easy to color!  I just love them all!  This also fits this week's Our Daily Bread designs  Shining the Light Challenge #2, to include red or pink and bling on your creation.  Since this is a masculine gift, I had to keep the bling down, but used the red charm and brad.  I hope that counts.  I also used the household item twine, thus qualifying for the Saturday Spotlight Challenge.  Inside this box are my hubby's favorite candies... Lindt Dark Chocolate Truffles.  Yum!

 
Thanks for looking and have a blessed weekend!
