Bittenbythebug2

happy memorial day :)   going  to keep this very short and simple. theres a blog hop going on at BBTB2 so be sure to head there and follow instructions :) good luck! 
this week jeri is our hostess and she chose one of my fave cuts from the sweethearts cartridge, bless this nest. 
i just made a card with this cut the other day so this time i decided to make an altered frame. i picked this unfinished frame  up from M's for 50 cents (using a coupon.)
i colored it with alcohol inks (lettuce and pearl) . then added robyns nest dewdrops and hearts (from the sweethearts cartridge) and the bless this nest saying. added lace and heart pins a few buttons and Martha Stewart punch butterflies. i used home decor cartridge for the added branches. on the birds nest i added some mossy bits. paper is memory box. i colored the birds in with colorbox fluid chalk.  thanks so much for looking :) remember to honor our fallen soldiers and say a prayer for those we have with us :) be safe.
