another one...

In case you haven't noticed I have a little bit of a theme going on here. One more Doodle Bird card and then I can move onto something else...won't you guys be thrilled?!

Anyway, this is with the same set only no bird but I think it is adorable! I went back and forth trying to decide if I should add something shiny (like maybe baubles) to the nest but then decided your house is empty when you move in so this nest will be too! The layout is from Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #25. Yes, I know...no cupcakes here but she does say that they are not required.

Anyway, the striped background paper is from My Minds Eye and I just coordinated the other colors to it. There is PTI's Plum Pudding and SU!'s Certainly Celery, Brocade Blue, and Pale Plum. I stamped little nests on the smaller circles and added the sentiment on the main panel.

And, after a very scientific way of choosing a name (pieces of paper in a box...drawn by Todd) Kimmie has won the note card from Thoughtful Thursday. Kimmie...I just need your snail mail address and I'll get this out to you! Thank you to everyone who stepped out of their comfort zone to participate in this little challenge! I probably won't have a prize every Thursday but that doesn't mean you shouldn't do something nice for someone else!

I hope that you make today a super Monday!
