Happy Tuesday everyone! I had a busy, busy day creating yesterday but got alot done so that makes me happy. I even got all my laundry done & a 55 min. workout--woohooo! I forgot how good it feels to work your body out and know that you're burning lotsa fat cells, LOL! We'll see how it goes---8 weeks & counting!!
**Don't forget to stop by Susana's Store blog "Follow Your Heart" and check out the sneaky peeks of the new stamps coming out on Friday by Victoria Case (OMGoodness are they cute-a-licious)!! While you're there enter for the YUMMY BLOG CANDY too!!**
So today is Tuesday, so that means it's "Try It Out Tuesday" for Susana's Store Blog!! I challenged the DT to create cards that were NOT a square or rectangle shape today!! It's always fun to make cards in a different shape & so fun to give & recieve too! I made a gift to go along with my card today. This cute lil' birdhouse was created from a FREE template by Nichole Heady for PTI (ya know I lovee my PTI)--very easy to print & assemble! My cs is from PTI also and the polka-dots were created with PTI's "Polka Dot Basics" for the bg.
I just adore the shape of this birdhouse--so cute! I used my CB embossing folder on the roof to give it texture & then added some ink to distress it a bit. I cut my hole out with a scalloped nestability & covered the window with vellum so the inside was hidden a bit. My birdhouse holds 6 teabags inside, but you could put lots of lil' gifts in there! The flowers are hydrangeas & roses from Prima.
