Anything But A Card at Sentimental Sundays


I hope you're all having a great (long) weekend.  We went to Kent yesterday for our grandson Ryan's 6th birthday party, it was great fun & he really enjoyed himself (it was a very long day though an 8 hour round trip but definitely worth it) & it was so lovely to see him, his lil sister Abigail & my son Craig & DIL Zoe (I do miss them!).  So today I'm hoping not to do very much today (apart from some crafting of course).  

It is very exciting times at Sentimental Sundays as today the design team members are announced - all 14 of them!  The "old" team members have now been promoted to Senior Members (I've never been a senior anything lol) how cool :)  This week's challenge is "Anything But A Card" (with a sentiment) & I should have found this easy as I love papercrafting & making different things to cards BUT I couldn't decide what to make lol.  In the end I went for a  Christmas birdhouse ornament, I've made a couple of these before & they do look pretty on the tree.  The red card is from Dovecraft's Noel premium paper pad & the green (though it doesn't look green in the photo) is digi (can't remember which one sorry) printed onto card.  I didn't have the correct nesties for the roof & base as used in the instructions so I just measured & cut with scalloped scissors.  I finished off with some wire & beaded flowers, a pointsettia, punched tag stamped with Noel, a couple of gems, tinsel, eyelets & some stretchy cord for hanging. The instructions & template are HERE if you would like to have a go :o)
