Peace and love birdies

Hey crafty friends - I'm back with a second card (of three allowed) for Christmas Kickstart where challenge 44 has the theme Peace on Earth.

Supplies: Paper - Paper Studio Holiday;
Neenah Classic Crest Solar White:
Basic Grey Aspen Frost (bark pattern)
Stamps - Hero Arts CM100 Christmas Messages;
My Favorite Things Winter Songbird and 
Tweet Holidays (retired)
Dies - My Favorite Things Blueprints 27 and
Lawn Fawn Stitched Labels
Other - foam tape; Crystal Stickles

A while back I ordered the Winter Birds stamp set from My Favorite Things, plus a few other goodies including Blueprints 27. My friend Lin (Sending Hugs) sent me some panels stamped from MFT's Holiday Tweets (retired) which included the little birdhouse and the birdie pair wrapped in the long scarf. Thanks again, Lin!! I thought they'd be darling with a couple other birdies from the Winter Songbird set in the windows of Blueprints 27. I stacked the window panel three thick for dimension and backed it with some birch bark paper from Basic Grey. Because I'd put everything together before stamping the sentiment, I popped it onto a label before adding to the window. A few Stickles - done!

I'm also sharing at Darnell's December NBUS Challenge since my Blueprints 27 is getting its first play here and at Merry Little Christmas Anything Goes Christmas (second of five allowed). Also to Sisterhood of Crafters Anything Goes Christmas/Winter.

Thanks for visiting! Hope you're enjoying this holiday season - I've got three cards left to mail, including this one. Then I'll be helping my mom mail out her Hallmark cards :)
