Birdhouse Thanks with Scrolls Work

Happy Monday, folks! How was your weekend? Mine was spent creating TONS! I also got a lot of happy mail over the weekend, and that is ALWAYS a good thing!

I have a pretty little card to share with you today created with a really great Scrolls Work birdhouse stamp! The Going Out of Business Sale is going strong and everything is still 50% off right now! Over HALF of the images have sold out already, so get 'em while their hot, folks! Get 'em while they are HOT!

Thanks


I stamped the image on a kraft panel and then added just a bit of color with watercolor crayons. I layered that over the white panel and then added the blue brads to coordinate with the birds. The entire panel is popped up.on the kraft background, also mounted on white. The sentiment is added by hand.

Thanks (detail)


Also, I just HAVE to show you this delightful envelope that arrived in my mailbox on Saturday!!!

Mail Art

I KNOW, right? Talk about a super fun thing to see when you go pick up your mail! It is from Craftattack and she included these beautiful handmade goodies inside!!!

Gift


Other than that, I took care of the sick Hubbums and had a pretty low-key weekend. I did finally clean my desk and took care of a part of my studio that needed some cleaning up, as well. More to do on that note, but things are looking better, at least. I hope you had a fabulous weekend!
