My Project for ODBD "Wing It" Challenge

Hello again, friends!

If you missed my latest Sushi Doll project from last night, 
please scroll down and take a peek when you're finished here.

I had lots of fun with my last participation over at Our Daily Bread Designs Blog!
I was happy with the warm welcome from the DT, and thrilled to win a prize!
I'll have more of these great stamps to share with you soon!

The new challenge is "Wing It". 
There are lots of ways to include wings on a project. 
I opted to go with a bird and made this cute little mini album measuring 6" X 2".
The front and back covers are chipboard, and the five inside pages are designer paper. 
Each page holds nothing but a journal spot. 
Each journal spot holds an uplifting Bible verse about wings and/or birds. 
I actually only have the one wing on the cover, but the word "wing" is included numerous times! ;o)

I was so blessed putting this little project together.
Looking for the encouraging verses...I was very encouraged!
I think it would make a lovely gift for someone who needs it!

When the pieces were all finished, I punched a hole, added a ring, and added a seam binding bow.
I cut a little banner and stamped it with "Blessings" from the ODBD Daffodil Tag Set.
A little pearl for the eye and it was finished. 
It's truly a simple project but it's the perfect addition to this sweet little nest basket!

Rather than loading this post with photos, I took them all together.
This is the one side of the bird. If you can't see the verses, just click on the photo.
The inside back cover holds a label with my info.

Here is the other side of all the birds. 
I left one spot empty. If I gift this to someone, I can add a little note to them.

Materials Used:
Papers: First Edition - Boho Chic;
Die: Sizzix - Bird w/ wing;
Punches: Stampin' Up - Scallop Circle, Decorative Label;
Stamp: Our Daily Bread Designs - Daffodil Tag Set;
Ink: Distress Ink - Vintage Photo;

At first I thought it was the cleverest key fob I had ever seen. At any rate I soon realised you had made this adorable little book. The colors and DP are just great and the verses will bless anyone anytime. Thank you for taking time to share with us today at Word Art Wednesday. Many Blessings, Carole

Creative and clever Nancy! I love the colour palette you used on these... it's shabby chic and a little primitive styling and a great combination!
