MC Apr/14 - Birdhouse Chickadees - Sing As If - HB

http://www.yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2014/MCApr14_BirdhouseChickadees_SingAsIf_HB.html
A friend brought in a birdhouse type plaque that her husband made from wood - I really liked it. BIG GRIN so you know me... had to make one... my first one is a card and will be uploaded on Sunday - I'm a guest designer on the Quirky challenge. But then I'm looking at it and saying to myself, I want to make one out of foam core which mimics the wood thickness and look more... eventually I'll make one out of wood when I can get in to my basement... that's another story.

Anyway I really love the way all the elements came together for this piece. I'm using a quote, sentiment and Chickadee stamp from Quietfire Design.

Click on either card image to see all the details and descriptions and more views etc. Enjoy.

Hi there Yogi - I had a good look at this one before I read the 'write up' and I thought "card, card - what on earth is she talking about???" I seriously thought this was a wooden plaque. How bloomin' lovely! I think the shape, the flowers, birds and especially the sentiment are all amazing. Just love this one.

Thank you so much for joining us over at the OSAAT challenge this week, lots of luck to you.

Hugs Sue Pxxx DT member

Thanks so much for sharing this delightful creation with us at Our Creative Corner. Sadly, we won't be able to include it in the prize draw as the challenge requires that we see the song lyrics or title on the project and that you tell us in the post what song has inspired you.
