Another Altered Birdhouse

Happy Tuesday! I should actually be calling this post "Another Procrastination Project"! lol I have a big project that I should be working on and I seem to be having a bit of trouble keeping my focus. This little birdhouse has been sitting in my studio since I altered my last one. Now that the cooler weather is moving in, I thought this poor little bird needed his home! This is the first time I've used a couple of new toys. First, I now have my very first Stampin' Up punch; the Boho Blossom Punch. So I didn't have to fussy cut these flowers this time...just stamp and punch! Yay for me, right? Secondly, I used the Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist on the finished flowers and the fence. I love it! I did just a light spritz and I love the shimmer it gave! I cut the Scripture verse a little bit short so that the whole bird would show but I'd like to share it with you here. Psalm 95:1 says: "O come, let us sing to the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation." Okay, now I think I better try to get some work done on my big project. On second thought, I think I need a coffee break, and then I should clean up the mess I made, and then I have to make supper...maybe I'll get to it tomorrow! lol Hope you're all having a happy week! :o)
