Build a little birdhouse in your soul...

Good Morning lovely friends
Happy Saturday!

We have a new challenge starting today at
and it is
anything but a card...

and wowzers - my Gemster teamies have created some amazing projects to inspire you for this challenge!

The prize for the lucky winner is 

2 Individual Digi images OR 2 Card Topper Kits OR one of each
(no sets or sentiment sets) 
of the winners choice from 
A random dash into Poundland saved the day for me with this project!

I popped in for something else and left with a wooden birdhouse ornament from the gardening section! - which cost not surprisingly a pound - bargain!

I covered the house with some of Janet's beautiful digi papers from the 
Baby Girl Bears collection and added some birds coloured with Copics from the super cute

I used some die cuts to add detail along with some flowers from

Finally I found the perfect embellishment from my stash - a rusty heart and some wire.

...and here we are, something completely different from me...yay for Poundland!
...and - if my blog post title sounds vaguely familiar have a peek at this wonderful you tube video - Build a little birdhouse in your soul by They Might Be Giants.  I guarantee you will smile and tap your feet!
