Bird Houses


I saw a card while blogging of course I can't find it now but she use a bird house stamp not this one but  I had just brought this one from Sassy Cheryl bargain bin. Thought they would be fun to layer but the pesky birds were a bit awkward to do especially as I missed one out and had to rectify that quickly.
Now the card I saw was an all white one except the image but I thought this one would work with some check pattern paper.
The border is from Stampin up and the sentiment is from a Hobby Art set and its almost straight. Once again I've used part of a Martha Stewart border. Not sure on the clouds, all the white space above the houses bugged me so put some Memory box Clouds on, only after they are well and truly stuck did I decide that maybe it would look better without them.
Well the Olympics are now over and it was marvellous two weeks of achievement and hard work. Well done to Team GB for their excellent results and to all the athletics of the world.
But did any one notice a event that took place yesterday the Charity Shield, next week the Football Season starts.
