Birdhouse for BBTB and Hot, Hot Hot for Cute Daisy May

On bitten by the bug this week, we were asked to use the house cut from the wildcard cartridge. I knew immediately what I wanted to do, and have to thank Kath, my talented teamie from Funky Hand and Polkadoodle design teams for the idea. Kath made the most fun birdhouse card for Polkadoodles and I thought I could adapt the idea for the cricut house. I cut the house at 7" then ran it through the cuttlebug using the distressed stripes border.

the owl is a stampie from Polkadoodles online store, and the tweet home circles were printed from the sugar birdies CD
I used making memories tiny letter stickers for the word home. Flowers are by prima -- oops I went over the line a bit on his eye, mental note to practice colouring within the lines...........

Cute Daisy May asked us to use only hot colours for our card this week, I picked this image of daisy in her little sundress, she is so sweet and has that look about her that little girls have when they are all dressed up and want to show off their pretty dresses



The label shapes were cut with my go-kreate nesting dies, and the happy birthday sentiment is another download from the new set by the cutting cafe



Don't forget, you don't need to use a cute daisy may image to enter the challenge, just use hot colours and have a go

  9. Enfys More lovely stuff. Think I need that distressed stripes folder. Got my Happy Birthday download by the way. Regina must have been sending it as I typed my comment to you. I managed to recolour and resize it as well using her great instructions. Funny how everybody is going birdhouse. I was browsing through an old PSX book I have and there were some templates and instructions for one.Nothing new under the sun. Love BettyXXX
    PS thanks for your great comments. The weight of keeping up to my reputation aaaaargh LOL
