*weekend retweet* - another sneak peek!

Who couldn't use a *weekend retweet*? For this little bird, it includes a stay at the fabulous and ever-so-ritzy Blue Birdhouse Inn and a refreshing dip in the sparkling waters of the nearby Crystal Water Birdbath and Pool. These luxury accomodations are the perfect get-away for the weary bird who could use a little rest and relaxation. A quaint wrought iron fence encloses the property for those birds concerned about privacy. Only the best birdseed is on the menu. Space is limited, so make your reservations soon!

Beth has really outdone herself (again!) with the new Tweets and Tweet Houses sets. There are lots of fun new coordinating images... and for this design, I pulled out my Fences set from the last release to cozy up this backyard scene. I love the new branch. It's the perfect "hang out" for any of the new birdhouses, and it's the perfect perch for any little bird who needs to rest up a bit.

My favorite part of this card is the *weekend retweet* sign. I curved the sentiment so it would follow the shape of the scalloped oval punch, and then I took the little flower from the new Mama Mouse and More set (it's actually part of a sentiment) and added it right in the middle. What bird wouldn't want to come to this backyard for a *weekend retweet*?

If you've got an extra minute, check out yesterday's sneak peek over at The Saltbox Sampler. ;)
