Birdhouses

Todays card was inspired by one of the beautiful stamps i got from Helene the owner of Alota Rubberstamps. I love this birdhouse stamp, simply because it is so versatile. You can make a card for a male or female. The layers of the DP are sewn and distressed. This card was first made only with the DP and the ribbon and it looked really masculine. Than i got my mail from the mailbox in and what do i see???? A big envelope from Tina B. over from Yummy Scrummy Create Blog. Oh my gosh.. she sent me 2 super cute stamps, these pretty Hydrangea Primas in lots of colors and many more things :-) Thank you so much Tina. Can you see how see me jumping up and down? hahahaha... the flowers she sent me were the PERFECT match to my card.
I used Beate's weekend sketch to create this card.

I also do not want to miss to show you the pretty card Tina sent me:
Some other other news... i can not believe it ... Korin the owner of Sweet'n Sassy stamps has contacted us and offered to sponsor the Friday Sketchers blog this week with a fabulous prize. So, make sure to swing by tomorrow to see whats up for grasp.
