PDCC #65 - You're Tweet

Hey there! Have you seen the latest color combo over at The Play Date Cafe?!?! LOVE IT!!!! I'm really digging the whole gray + any other color these days---so super hip and trendy!


And here's my creation:


I just received the newly released Birdcage E143 and You're Tweet C82 stamps (DeNami Design) in the mail and had to ink them up right away!!! I also used the Single Tweety Bird A98 and a couple of the birdies from the Tweety Bird Border K83 (DeNami Design)! The birds on this border stamp are spaced really nicely, which makes it super simple to ink up individual birdies using a Dew Drop or Cat's Eye ink pad! Here are a couple of close-ups:



The layered notebook sheets (which I ended up liking) actually resulted from a mistake. In my original design I inked up the bird cages and birdies in London Fog ink. Well...once I had it all together, it just wasn't working for me. I decided that the bird cages and birdies needed to POP more and that Tuxedo Black ink would do the trick. I layered the new panel on top of the old notebook panel and folded up the edge for fun! Just goes to show that mistakes can sometimes lead to good things!


What do you think? I hope you like my card and feel inspired to create something today!!

On a personal note...today is a REALLY HAPPY DAY in the Petrella house!!! The Steelers won yesterday and that means...you got it...Pittsburgh's goin' to the Super Bowl!!! (said of course to the tune of the Steeler song...Here We Go!) WOOHOO! What a game!!! We watched it at our friends' house with some of my husband's co-workers! It was LOTS of fun! We wore our Steeler gear, brought along our Terrible Towels, and shared some Polish Mistakes---these yummy snacks that my Great-Aunt Lois always made for family get-togethers (including Steeler games) growing up in the Burgh!!! Another guy (who grew up in NY) and his family were all decked out in Jets attire! They even tracked down green tortilla chips (guacamole flavored) because they didn't want to bring anything GOLD (wouldn't want to look like a Black & Gold Steelers fan...HA!). His little girl (who's 5) said to me..."Oh yeah, well ALL my friends are JETS fans and even my stuffed animals are JETS fans!!" It was hilarious!

Okay...sorry for the LOOOONNNNGGGG post today! Hope your week is off to a FANTASTIC start too! Thanks for stopping by!
