Hi, Ho, Hi, Ho, it's back to work I go!!!

Hi, Ho, Hi, Ho, it's back to work I go! Boo hoo....no more snow days for a while. And no more school days off until April (ah, the whines of a schoolteacher, huh?!) Oh, well....I'm still crafting away before I go to bed when I can. So, anyway, enough whining and on to the projects, eh?
Both of the projects on this post are inspired by Andrea Walford. The top card is made completely from scraps. I used some of the in colors from last year and the new bird punch to make this card. It's pretty straightforward - the bird wings all have dazzling diamonds glitter on them. I used my new scallop trim punch and the branches were cut out in both chocolate chip and kiwi kiss. I cut out the leaves and glued them on top of the chocolate chip branch so they looked more like a real branch.
As for the box...it got a little smooshed in the scanner....
Real Red, chocolate chip and very vanilla was the color scheme on this one. I used my I {heart} hearts stamp set for the hearts. The two larger hearts were sprayed with shimmer mist and the smallest heart was punched with a 1/2" circle punch and placed in a build-a-brad.

First of all, these projects are so cute! Second of all, how can you not have days off until April? We had 2 Mondays in Jan. off, a 4-day weekend in Feb for Presidents Day, spring break in March.... (Can you tell I look forward to off days!) :)
