season's tweetings

Hi, everyone! Hope the week's off to a good start.

Today's card is inspired by the current Oh Little *Town* of Bethlehem Jingle Belles Challenge. The challenge is to make a card featuring a building. Hmmm...

A couple of little birdies are telling me this card might be disqualified.... but, then again Stephanie and Lauren are pretty cool. So, I decided to go ahead and share this little birdhouse over at Jingle Belles. I've been so busy making cards for SAS4Kids -- Valentine's, Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day -- that I've not played at JB for a while and decided to flutter in and play along. Hope I haven't ruffled any feathers. (Sorry.... I just couldn't resist.)

Doodlebug Designs dp; Recollections, Staples, and SU cardstock
??? birdhouse dies (gifted from a friend)
Lawn Fawn winter sparrows sentiment, heat embossed with white SU powder
Cuttlebug embossing folder; Recollections twine
snow: random Versamark pen marks, heat embossed with white SU powder
I've also been neglecting Shopping Our Stash, which has a For the Kids Challenge going on. Think a kiddie would enjoy this play on words. Since chances are pretty good this will be going to Send a Smile 4 Kids, think I'll share this over at SOS too.   :)

Parting Thoughts

Think that's it. Short and sweet tonight.  :)

Before signing off, don't forget there's a new challenge over at Words 2 Craft By... and a $10 gift certificate up for grabs.

And until next time, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
