The MeetUp group that I belong to did a class not too long ago where they decorated these cute little birdhouses.  Of course I missed that one, so I had to come up with something on my own so I didn't feel left out!! I bought the wooden house at JoAnn's for $1 and used my own patterned paper, punches, flowers, buttons (CTMH) and tiny pearls...

Thanks for stopping by! Please take a moment to leave a comment!!

My 1st ATC's

I just joined a new ATC group, ATC TradinLadyz, with some of my ScrappinLadyz friends. In case you don't know, ATC stands for Artist Trading Cards. They are 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" (like baseball trading cards) but are original, self-produced cards meant ONLY for trading. You can find out more by Googling ATC or Artist Trading Cards.

My 1st MeetUp is in a couple weeks and is a Summer theme. I started with this cute little Popsicle that I CASE'd from Paper Smooches. (She used a Popsicle stamp, but I had to improvise since I don't have one)...

and ended up with this...

I used a sponge to make the clouds and sand, a couple different Cricut cartridges for the Popsicle shape and waves, little black pearls for the eyes, and SU markers. I also gave the sun and Popsicle a little dimension with PopDots. Not sure if you can see it, but the ball says "stay Cool!"

Hope everyone had a fun and safe 4th of July!!
