Hey Ewe Tweety Bird!

This is what happens when you do a mash-up of some of your favorite blog challenges! This is also what happens when you regret not buying the black and white chevron card stock you saw at Hobby Lobby. That's a shout-out to blog friend Julie...sometimes "ewe" really DO need to buy that thing you believe you "just can not live without"! I didn't have any black and white stripe anything on hand so I made my own. And yes I am not too proud to admit that there are four un-salvageable attempts in the trash heap.

So about the mash up. I needed to use the black/white strip photo inspiration at JUGS; use a digi from Just Some Lines and incorporate May flowers; the shiny cherry and heart shape over at {PIN}spirational; use the sketch at Retro Sketches; add feathers for Little Red Wagon; add some metal for Pile It On; and of course post over at LadyBug Crafts with anything goes!
