Well it all started at Ally Pally when I stopped to look at some of the card samples on 'Anne Marie's' stall. I picked up a little birdhouse template which caught my eye.(You may have seen I used it on a New Home card) When I was using it, I did wonder if I couldn't turn it into a 3D house, though I didn't follow that idea through at the time. A couple of weeks ago I dipped into the Create and Craft TV channel only to see Anne Marie doing a demo of that very thing!!
As she had so kindly worked out any of the potentially awkward bits for me it was a doddle to put together (well, there were a couple of sticky moments....). I did some decoration using a martha stewart punch, made some paper roses and die cut some leaves - in fact I'm beginning to think I may have over- embellished it a bit!! It has absolutely no useful function at all (although it does open) but this is what I have for you this month.
SO, if you have space for a little bird house and would like to be entered into the draw please leave a comment to that effect by 8.00 pm on Wednesday June 30th. Feel free to link from your own blogs - the more the merrier!!
As I am writing this, I have no idea what the quality of the photos will be. The reason for this is that first of all my printer died (really this time - I'm not going to bother trying to resurrect it this time.... it has served me well). This is important because the only way I have of uploading photos is through the card slot on the printer (ever since I broke the cable on the camera lol). Until of course my darling OH bought an all media external drive 'thingy'. Except when I tried to put my card in any of the five slots it wouldn't work (so much for all media). Not to be defeated, I re-took the piccies on my phone and used that card instead but I have never done that before so apologies if they are a bit pants. I may be able to rectify that when the new printer arrives but that won't be for a couple of days. Too much technology for me for one evening I am afraid!!!!
