Bird Houses

These are the favors that Christine and I made for her and my brother's engagement party.  I found the template for the birdhouses on Nichole Heady's blog.  The roof and the base are made with  scallop nesties.  All dsp is from SU!.  We made 40 of these birdhouses, and at the end of the party only 6 were left! Our guests loved them, and they were the perfect favor to complement our spring theme.

We purchased the tree branches, and buckets at G and G (a florist outlet store), and filled the buckets with sand, and then covered the sand with some river rocks.

Hope you enjoy seeing our favors!


Happy Easter!

Did you realize Easter is only 1 and 1/2 weeks away?! Granted, I'll be in Disney World that day, but I still needed to get some cards made to send out.  I made this card this evening following Sketch Challenge #222 on Splitcoast.  I used a Gingersnap set called "Spring Things!" by CC Designs.  I stamped the fence, colored it in, and stamped the girl and bunny on separate paper.  I colored them and cut them out to lay on top of the fence.  I used Prismacolor pencils and Mineral Spirits to color all of the images.  There is a light blue sky on my fence panel, but it doesn't show up very well.  I used dsp paper called "Flock Together" from SU!, along with some G and G ribbon and a CTMH sentiment.  Her bunny ears are covered in glitter for that extra touch! :) I stitched around the bottom layer and the image layer too.  Thanks for stopping by!
