Another week.  I have been busy making masks.  Lots
of requests for kids going to school soon.  I also have
made some with a vinyl window for my daughter who is
a kindergarten teacher so they can see her smile when
she talks to them.  

My garden is loving all this hot weather, I have tomatoes
galore.  What we can't use and what I don't give away, I have 
been cutting up for soups and sauces this winter and freezing.

This week's card.

Bird Stamp - Impression Obsession-(E19968)
Little birdhouse shape - Printworks Creative Shapes
Background paper- Sunshine Pad,, Joanna Ossowska (6x8 sheets)

I ran the little birdhouse through the Tim Holtz woodgrain embossing folder
I colored it with the broad end of a copic marker, leaving some areas lighter.
I cute the roof out and ran it through a diamond embossing folder.
Added a piece of black paper behind the opening of the birdhouse.
Added a 1/2 piece of black across the birdhouse for a perch for the birds.
Popped up the birdhouse, popped up the birds on the birdhouse.
Added some stickles around the bird wings
Fussy cut the birds out and adhered them to the perch,.

These little birdhouses are such fun.  And the quirky little birds are too.

Hope everyone is well.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a good week.
Until later....

Hi Sue, I love the birdhouse card.

Glad you can freeze your excess produce. Here farmers are saying they've not had enough water for crops to grow properly.

Hope you have a good start to the week. Sue

This is just so gorgeous, beautifully made Sue and the little birds are so cute.
What a super idea to include a window in your daughter's mask, especially as she teaches little ones, Kate x

Excellent job you did on making the bird house. It's so cute. I'd like to have some of those good tomatoes. It's great that you can put some up in the freezer.

We FINALLY just got a small chest freezer for the garage. It was pure luck because we've been trying to get one for an eternity. [Bunny]

Oh wow I love this so much Sue! The birdhouse is so cleverly done with your different textures and the birds are so sweet!! Nicely done! I'm sure those folks appreciate you making all of those masks...especially for someone like myself who doesn't sew a straight line! :) HUGS
