a little birdie told me...

It's not too late to enter into La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge at La-La Land Crafts Blog, you can do it until Monday!! This week's challenge is "Flower Power".

I am back to making cards, and my head is exploding with ideas!! I have decided to write them down and try to make one at a time. I just couldn't concentrate otherwise, felt like I was all over the place :-) .

This is one of the cards for my upcoming "Shaped Cards" class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. We will make three different cards in this class, I will make two other ones within a few days. This class is scheduled for:

Thursday, September 3rd, 11 am to 2 pm
Thursday, September 3rd, 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Sunday, September 6th, 12 pm to 3 pm

Please bring pop-up dots (foam tape) and you favorite adhesive to the class. All other supplies will be provided.

$30, 10 participants max.

Class Kits will be available until September 6th, $35 each.

Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sigh up for the class and/or purchase you kit/s.

This card measures 5 3/4" X 6".

I made my own template for the bird house. It is a "window" card. I used circle Nestabilites to cut out the opening. The sentiment on the scalloped circle was stamped and then cut and embossed with Nestabilites. All the stamps used on this card are from the clear stamp set by Impression Obsession. Martha Steward border, flower and leaf punches. Small flower is the punch from Marvy. Hero Arts pearls in the centers of the flowers. Mark Richards' Nailheads for the bird's eye. The designer paper is by BoBunny.

This card is absolutely adorable!!!! This design, like many of my favorites from your classes, has lovely coordinated colors and a wonderful blend of embellishments to complement the design. I can hardly wait to see the others for your class and am hoping I can squeeze in some time to get to a class so I can learn to make it too.

Abrazos, Carol F

I could spend hours visiting your blog and all your lovely works of art.

I'm especially fond of bird houses and was wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing the template you made for this darling bird house card. I keep trying my hand at it, but can't seem to get it to come out straight.

Thanks a bunch,
Stamper Gail
