Valentine's Day and a Mystery

I know, I know.  You're up to your elbows in turkey and cranberry sauce and have Christmas projects galore.  Me too!!  But since my guest spot at Sketches in Thyme is in January, I have to think beyond Gobble, Gobble, and Ho-Ho-Ho. 

I was going through my card samples and found these two that are favorites of mine.  The "Kiss Me" card is cut from Sweethearts.  I cut the frog 3 times so I could pop him up.  I used my red 3-D glaze pen on the heart that dots the i and my black 3-D glaze pen on his toes (are they called toes on a frog - hmmmm?).  I added jewels for the eyes and to accent the crown.  A little doodling here and there and he's waiting for a kiss! 
Now, this card is a mystery.  I can't remember which cartridge I cut the bird from - yikes!  My brother-in-law sent me some supplements that are supposed to help with memory (darn aging brain anyway), but I don't think I've taken them long enough.  Do you think it's because I forget to take them?  I've gone through every cartridge preview page and also did the search on both the Gypsy and DS.  Still can't find it.  It must be one of those hidden treasures found on the icon feature of some cartridge.  I won't give up.  I'm going through all my booklets this evening - who knows what wonderful things I'll uncover.  Hopefully one of them will be this darn bird.  I really love how the bird just pops against the two patterned papers.  It's such a simple card, but I love it - he-he!

Well, I'm off to continue the search.  If you recognize the bird, please leave a comment and tell me where I can find it.  I will be ever so grateful. 
Mystery solved - it's from Joys of the Season.  It's the partridge (in a pear tree) and I cut off the branch.  Phew, only had to go through 28 booklets to find it (could have been all 80!).

Hugs and Happy Crafting,

Great cards! Glad you figured out your mystery! I hate when I don't remember where I found a cut and I don't have very many cartridges!
I'm told fish oil is good for memory, also the heart, but for the life of me I can't remember who told me, LOL!
