felt birdhouse

The challenge for April over at bubblyfunks Vanilla Sugars site so as I've made a card birdhouse before I thought I'd do something different.
I designed some little birds and a birdhouse and made them from some lovely new colours of felt that I have recently bought.
I added some small flower sequins to the threads and on the front of the birdhouse and I may add a small bell to the top of each bird so it makes a bit of noise as it moves.
For now it will hang in my craft room but it may be given away at some point as it would look lovely hung in a little girls bedroom.
It wasn't the easiest thing to photograph as the pieces just would not stay still!

flowery birthdays

It's been so long since I blogged! Sometimes life just takes over and other things have to take a back seat!
This card is one I made for a family birthday. I used a cuttlebug die to cut the petal shapes and decided not to emboss them with the other part of the die. I like the effect more like this than when I've embossed the petals on previous cards.
