An Altered Birdhouse!

When Christian Paper Crafts posted their Bible Verse Thursday #121 yesterday, I was totally inspired to create! I love the verses from Psalm 84 that they used! You can read Abby's post HERE. After seeing the challenge, I immediately thought of all the wooden birdhouses that I have and knew that I had to alter one. It will be a perfect new addition for my sunroom. It was a really fun project to do and I've already started another one. Hope you like it! :o)
Papers: Tim Coffey - Blossomwood Collection;
Die: Tim Holtz - Hanging Sign;
My Stash: acrylic paint, embossing powder, raffia,
Spanish moss, miniature rusty garden tool,
miniature grapevine wreath, mushroom bird,
miniature wooden pot, eyelets, jump rings.

I just love this Nancy! You are so talented!...and as far as the Easy Dump Cake recipe...yes, your just use the dry cake mix!! I know...crazy! It's a really sweet dessert so I would suggest serving it with unsweetened whipped cream. Yummo!!! You can also use pie filling as well.

Hi Nancy, What a delightful project. Somehow I missed this when I hosted that particular challenge. I just love birds and that scripture in particular. Thanks for participating, and thanks for following my blog. I'm off to become your latest follower. ~ Abby
