I came home from work today, reheated last night's chili and after dinner - went upstairs to relax in my craft room and made this card! 

I am sooooo ready for spring!!  This morning when I got up I noticed we got more snow last night!  But after the sun came out, I noticed there were little birds out today singing and sitting right in front of my downstairs front window!   I thought about grabbing my camera and trying to get a picture but didn't know if I could get a good picture through the window and I knew if I went outside, I would scare them off. 

This image I used is from some blog candy that I received quite awhile ago and I finally decided to use some of it!  The ribbon is Baha Breeze Stampin Up! seam binding ribbon.  It is so pretty and just perfect for the vintage look - which I love so much.  Added a mini vintage tag with a "love life" stamp image from SU! right on the tag.  Colors of cardstock are baja breeze, river rock, kraft and very vanilla.  I added some stitching and distressed it up a little, a few pretty brads that matched the baha breeze and tadaa!

Thanks for stopping by and also for leaving comments!  I love to know that there are people out there reading my new blog {{smiles}}
