Best Buds

It isn't often that a card just "falls together" for me, but this is one that did.  These cute little "best bud" birdies are part of a new Valentine set, hearts2love, from the {stamps} of Life, and the two sentiments I used with them are each from special release sets, minis4circles and invite2create.  I thought they would work perfectly with this already-decorated-for-Christmas Snow Day designer paper from Crate Paper.  I stamped them directly onto the printed paper with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored them with my Copic markers.  The edges were sponged with distress ink.  I used some gold metallic ink and a scrap of gold metallic paper to make a crown and hanger (monogram2build) for the ornament/sentiment, then tied on some sheer metallic gold ribbon for a simple Christmas invite.  Can you say homemade eggnog!  Mmmm-mmm!  :)

The {stamps} of Life releases monthly club sets on the 1st, and special release sets on the 11th, so all of these are available now!  One perk of club membership (besides saving money) is that special release sets are available early to club members on the 7th of each month.
