Sweet Love...

with all of these Christmas in July challenges going around, I figured I would post something to keep with the times :)  I have all of these dies for use with my cuttlebug and they just sit around waiting for some love....so I picked up my photo corner die by Quickutz (now Lifestyle Crafts).  One of my absolute FAVORITE uses for this die is to use it for trees.  I love the look and I love to find things to decorate my trees with.  For this card I chose cardinals...2 cardinals in love...if you know me, then you know I am quite a sap when it comes to being in love :)  HA HA HA!!!  I just made a joke and didn't realize it until just now...I am talking about the tree I created and I used the word "sap"...I guess the pun is intended?  Hee hee!  It is past midnight and I am realizing that I am getting delirious ;)  Better wrap this up so I can get some much needed sleep in order to have a shot at a good day at work.  Here goes:

"Sweet Love":
SUPPLIES USED:
Card:  Michaels
Cardstock:  Unknown (using up scraps)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); Brilliance Dew Drop Rocket Red (Tsukineko)
Stamps:  Unity {formerly Ippity} "Quotes a la Happy"set; I will have to edit the sentiment in because I can't remember it at this moment
Die Cuts:  Quickutz
Other:  Zig pen (EK Success); Pop Dots

Close Up: 
 I tried to lighten this one a little since my photo above is a little too dark.  I love those sweet little birds :)

Enjoy the weekend dear friends!
