Hi everyone!

Hope you are all having a super weekend and that you have lots of time to be creative!

The codeword to work with at the current ATCAS challenge is 'Love' and I have made the following card for the challenge:

For my card I have used a new stamp that I bought at a local craft shop, Great Impressions, yesterday.
The large 'U' and the heart I have cut with dies from Verve and the smaller letters were cut with an alphabet die from Tim Holz.  I've given the heart a bit of shine with Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer.

Those of you who visited my RS#100 post during the week, will remember that I had a Fiscal Shrike visiting me while photographing my card.  Well this time I had a Fork-tailed Drongo inspecting my card and he also, jumped right onto my card!!

Wonder which bird will be next!!

That's it for this Saturday-afternoon, I'm off to do some scrapbooking.
Thanks for the visit and have a lovely day!

First of all - fabulous card - so creative and unique! :) I guess the bird thought so too - love him sitting there like it was put there just for him to perch on :)
