You Made My Day

Happy Saturday, peeps!  I am running a little later than normal today...just a lazy Saturday morning after watching too much Britbox last night!!  I have been hoarding these lovely birdhouse images my friend Lisa sent me long ago, and thought it would be nice to actually color one in and USE it on something!  Once I started to put things together, I realized that the FMS sketch, that I already used once this week, would be good for this card as well!  So here we go:

And as a refresher, here's the FMS sketch:

I watercolored the image with various inks and an aquapainter, then fussy-cut it out; the background paper is French Flea Market by Photo Play; it matches perfectly with the Blushing Bride mat I used, diecut with the Ornate Layers die:

My sentiment, stamped in Blushing Bride, is from Ornate Thanks....I made a little fishtail banner and popped it up over the edge of the birdhouse.  I needed a very special thank you card, so this will be going out in the mail soon!

My nephew is a contractor (he put our addition on), and since he has two boys, it's natural that they would want to be in the shop with him, learning the trade!  Jameson built his first bird feeder recently (and yes, he's a leftie!):

Not bad for someone who just turned five this week....and with a little help from a very talented daddy!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!  Thanks for popping in today!

What a sweet and pretty card! I love the detail on that pink mat. Well, that five year-old just surpassed my construction level of expertise. Way to go, Jameson! Glad we got an extra treat from you in the FMS gallery this week!

You've done a beautiful job with my favorite little birdhouse and your fussy cutting is outstanding! That one is a bear to trim out isn't it! If you ever want more, just say the word. BRAVO to master builder Jameson, looks GREAT!!

Wonderful card using that sweet little birdhouse from Lisa - it has her name written all over it!
Way to GO, Jameson!!! Well done, little bud!

That's so adorable! Almost as cute as the young man with his birdfeeder! :-)

OMGosh, how can I comment on your card when you post such a precious pic of Jameson?

This is so pretty with the birdhouse and florals behind - I was only thinking before I read your post that Lisa has that birdhouse stamp as she used it on a card last week! Jameson’s bird house is great - what a talented little chap!

This is pretty for spring!

Your card says country cottage garden to me. So sweet! Thanks for playing along at Freshly Made Sketches!
