HOUSE MOUSE LOVE Challenge #62 & A "Birds Of The Air" ODBD card

If you arrived here and you are looking for the CRAFTY SENTIMENTS BLOG HOP, please scroll down one post...

If you arrived here looking for the ODBD (Our Daily Bread Designs) FEBRUARY RELEASE Scripture BLOG-HOP, you will need to return to the main ODBD blog and follow the ODBD Design Team's member's blogs, not the ODBD Challenge Team Member's Blogs to participate on HOP. (Im on the CT).

As a treat, and since you went through the trouble of checking here, I will go ahead and share a new ODBD card that I just made with you. :) I called it: Birds of The Air

This one features images and a sentiment from 2 NEW sets; "You will Find Refuge" & "Sing For Joy". I was just trying-out something a little different by combining bird images & cutting out part of sentiment! What do you think?

NOW....If you are HERE looking for House Mouse & Friends challenge #62, then YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE! LOL :) AND Im so glad you stopped by 'cuz it's my turn to host this next challenge and Ive chosen to go with a ***LOVE*** theme. So fitting for this time of year--> dont ya' think?! :) We are to freely create! Anything goes, as long as it is *LOVE* related and features at least on HM&F image.

Here is my LOVE card. Kinda funky, kinda vintage-y, kinda funny. LOL
