2nd post today ~ A bird House

Hi again, yes as promised I'm back this time with a bit of a giggle because this week at Addicted To Stamps its 'Anything but a card' week, yes the one I was dreading, I'm useless at making anything but a card so prepare yourself for a good laugh...

...you don't really want to see this do you?

....Did I mention the challenge blog name is Addicted to Stamps...

...it's a really cool blog with some fantastic DT work from the other girls...

...oh well here goes...

...one birdy house coming up...


Ok when you've stopped laughing I'll tell you how I made it lol,
I used the template from the first Magnolia Ink magazine and dressed it up with Magnolia papers, inked the edges with TH distress ink Vintage photo and added WOC flowers, MS punched leaves & flossy bits are free from the tag you receive when you buy anything from Craftobsessions.
There you have it, you dry your eyes and I'll go and add my next card lol...
luv & hugs

Hi Teresa, why would I laugh - it's gorgeous! You should make them more often - if I was a little dicky bird I would pop in there and set up home! Very pretty! ps one day this week I will put my 6 individual attempts at crochet 'baby boottees' on my blog, instead of each getting better, each seems to have got worse, bigger, but worse, - nightmare - can anyone read a crochet pattern?

Ribbon Girl said...

2nd attempt, lost the first one, sorry, - what a fab bird house - if I was a dicky bird I'd live in it - it's really pretty Teresa! You should see my 6 attempts at a crocheted baby boottee - they get bigger, but worse - can anyone read a 'simple beginners' pattern lol, seriously, you should make more 'not a card' projects - it's really nice!
