Our family Birdhouse


I finally finished my project for SVGCuts Spring challenge. It took me forever, between spring break and sick kids, but I'm finally done!... Phew! :-)
I started with a wooden frame found at Michael's for $1, the minute I saw it I knew what my project would be... So the frame became my little birhouse... I "mod-podged" some Que Sera Sera paper on the frame.



I then decorated it using files from Spring Birdhouses for the birds and greenery, and Robin's return for the gorgeous lace border. I added Prima flowers, and a little felt to keep my birdies warm and cozy... :-)



 
The stamp I used is from PaperTrey Ink.

Of course it was only when I was finished sewing the button on the bow that I noticed it was off center... LOL I decided to leave it like that and argue that it looks more homemade this way... ;-)




For now, this hangs above my desk, I like to look at it and think about my crazy little family of 5!... :-D

ETA: My entry got 4th place in the challenge! :-D

Wow, Bee! I love the little family of birds and the way you used the leaves and vines! The embossing on the roof is a nice touch and all the colors and the Que Sera Sera pattern is gorgeous. The lace adds such a cute, homey touch too! The flowers are adorable too but don't take attention away from the focus on the cute birds! Love it!!! Thanks for sharing! :) ~Mary
