Tangled Up

This is the second time in a week I've come across a challenge and had an instant flash of inspiration!  Whoop whoop!  Normally I agonise for ages over what to do but this has been a nice change.  Hopefully I'll be due for one more inspiration flash (as things come in threes right?)
The challenge is at Wee Memories - Challenge #51 Tangled Up.  We are to use twine in our project.  Now I don't have any of that awesome Twinery baker's twine (not yet, anyway!) but I have plenty of regular brown twine.  Maybe it was the word "tangled" but I immediately thought of a bird's nest and put together this little card:
Supplies: CS: SU & Bazzill; PP: Basic Grey; Stamps: PTI & Elzybells; Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black & VersaFine  Sepia; Twine: Ikandee
I love that little PTI birdie!  He comes in handy for so many things and I'm sure will make many more appearances here in the future.


Must go check on hubby.  Poor guy had 2 teeth pulled today and is completely miserable at the moment.  He's snuggled up on the sofa under a duvet giving me pathetic puppy dog eyes.  Or that could be one of the actual dogs as they're both piled on top of him...  Hmmm...

Your use of twine is perfect, Jen! Love that nest and, of course, the bitty bird. At least it makes sense that the bird would be in a nest. My bitty birds often appear rather randomly perched on things like words or dots. :) Sure hope your husband is feeling better soon! Pain is no fun! (And a husband in pain is less fun!)
