Howdy friends! It's the middle of the month again (JUNE!!!), and that means it's time for the CCAYR Christmas Belles to give you some inspiration for this month's House/Cottage theme. Here is mine:
I decided I wanted to make this birdhouse card again, just like the one posted here. No cardinal this time...I am having an issue with my Silhouette software not recognizing my machine on the new desktop, so I had to dig out this Studio G bird stamp. Stamped it in Fired Brick Distress Oxide ink, and punched out a small heart. Leandra (my DD), said that I should stamp the word "home" in the bird house opening and place the heart underneath it to convey the message that "home is where the heart is." Pretty clever of her, I think! Used the Martha Stewart branch punch to make something for the bird to rest on outside the house. The woodgrain embossing folder is from Darice. Added Snow-Tex to the roof of the birdhouse, and some holly leaves and berries for some holiday décor above the opening.
