A Birthday Project For My Sis!

by Myrna

I’m going to do some chatting as I don’t want my sis to figure out what her “Birthday Project” is. She hates surprises but one thing she won’t do is look at her cards early.

Just a quick reminder that the Little Darlings Challenge blog is having a contest until the 8th of June. There are awesome prizes so start making those cards ladies!  On June 1st Love to Stamp will be sponsoring the Really Reasonable Ribbon  challenge. On June 3rd Love to stamp is sponsoring the Fussy and Fancy challenge. So have fun and enter some challenges for amazing prizes!

Bev has ALWAYS loved birds, especially robins!! She has many robins around her house in pictures, figurines or what ever she can find that has to do with robins. As soon as I saw the bird house in the very first Magnolia Ink Magazine I knew I had to make it for her. Then along came the perfect stamp to go with it. The hAnglar girl with bird house.

I’m not sure I’ll ever make another bird house. LOL I used swirls to look like vines growing around the bird house. I used the Magnolia heart swirl and on the big sides I was able to combine them to look like a heart. I was sooooo proud of how it turned out until I realized I had glued it to the BOTTOM of the bird house!!! I decided to just put the sentiment on the back instead of making two more swirls.

I did color the shirt on the girl what I thought a robin’s breast color is.

The left side of the roof comes open to get at the candy inside. I used a magnet to keep it closed.

  18. SPECTACULAR birdhouse birthday card, sis!! Mere words cannot begin to describe the feeling in my heart as I pulled the birdhouse out of the box and felt all the love bursting out of it! The swirling vines, hearts, the birdhouse design, the sentiment on the back, the oh so clever magnet roof filled with my favorite candy are too phenomenal for words!!!!!!!!! The oh so precious girl is a replica of me to a tea,(in my younger years of course) holding the birdhouse that I treasure and the robin redbreast shirt is truly amazing. And those Merrell shoes really blew me away! Thank you so much for sending such a special momento for my birthday!
    As you know we were out of town for a week so that explains the delay on your post!
    Hugs and Lots of Love,
