so very tweet

Here's another card made using the new "Combo Sentiments" set from smARTworks, paired with one of my Birdies...this was a fun card to make, and made good use of my did I ever stamp before I had one of those?

To start off, I inked the "sweet" stamp, omitting the "s", positioned it with the SAMJ, then cleaned the stamp, inked only the "t", and lined it up with the other letters. Ha! Punny. "So very" is a partial stamp as well ("so very much"). The bird was also positioned with the SAMJ. You can't see it well in the picture, but he is colored over with a black Spica glitter pen so he's very sparkly (hee hee, Rain Man fans...).

That ribbon...I think I'm addicted to it...! Yesterday I ordered a 25 yd. roll from B.B. Crafts - I couldn't believe their prices, especially on the rolls of solid organza - for 25 yards of 3/8" wide ribbon - $1.25! To think I paid almost that much for 2 yards a few weeks ago.........! Anyway, go check them out...they have some purty stuff.
