Not a Card – Can You Believe It??

So my last post showed a card without using Copics and now ~ can you believe it? I made something that WASN’T a card! I admit that cards are my favorite way to create. There are so many things in my life that are a ‘tad’ chaotic, that I relish being able to express my creativity (and escape the chaos) for an hour or two. I know I can start with a piece of blank paper and after an hour of playing, have a lovely card to share with a friend. I enjoy other projects, but lack the confidence to know what to expect at the end of that hour when I dive in. LOL.

This project was pretty quick and easy, thanks to my SU friend and her monthly card kits, and of course, the wonderful challenge inspirations in blog land.

Color Inspiration ~ Crafty Catz #50 ~ Chocolate and Green

Creative Belli Challenge ~ B Embellishments I used a 'B'ird punch on my creation.
AllSorts Challenge #70 ~ 3 Punches Circle, Bird and Scallop
Daring Cardmakers ~ Come Fly With Me
My birdie is resting, but she can fly off any time.
Cute Card Thursday #130 ~ Tweet and a Flutter I used the TWEET as inspiration.
Rainbow Lady’s Challenge #119 ~ Feathers
The Corrosive Challenge #82 ~ Clean Up the Dust
The challenge is to use old supplies. I've had my scalloped border punch for over a year and seldom use it.
PaperTake Weekly Challenge ~ Animal Magic
Simon Says Challenge ~ Movement
Hopefully my birdhouse will qualify. The bird isn't moving at the moment, but she signifies a creature that does move quite a bit. In addition, I hung my 'tweet' birdhouse on a plant at work. It's near a air vent and is moving all the time! LOL.

My Creation
I have no idea what I'll use this little treasure for, but for now it's a cute decoration on my palm plant.
Ins and Outs ~ Bitty Birdhouse
Stamps: SU Woodgrain Background
Paper: All SU
Ink: SU Chocolate Chip
Accessories: SU Punches and Dies (Bird, Circle, Scallop Edge, Milk Carton), SU Ribbon
