Curtain twitching!

My husband is a right curtain twitcher - as soon as he hears something rustle outside, he's at the window having a nose - and they say it's us women who are the nosy ones!  But I digress.  I'm here today with my DT card for MilkCoffee Stamps and today we are showcasing the very sweet Coco and here is my make using Coco in the Window With Her Bird...



Isn't she lovely?  It's fab for a "thinking of you" card and I make loads of those!  I paper pieced the inside of the window - talk about fussy cutting, it took me ages to do!  I used My Minds Eye Darling Dear papers and I used Holidays Spring font for the PC sentiment.

You can see more birthday themed cards over at the MilkCoffee Stamps blog!



I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Just saw this card, it's lovely! I love the grass border with those darling flowers and gems.

I had to laugh at your husband being a curtain twitcher (didn't know they had a name for it!!) because mine is TOO...he's always checking out what's going on outside or with the neighbors/dogs etc. too funny :)
