Birdhouse Ornament

Isn't this birdhouse ornament the cutest!!! You can find the template for this on Nichole Heady's blog here:

I used Ruby Red and Chocolate Chip CS. I really stayed very basic. I didn't stamp the cs although I may try that next time. I added the Prima Poinsettia and the sprigs punched with the Martha Stewart Fern Punch. I added an eyelet to the center of the roof, looped the cording through and tied a knot under the roof. I stamped Merry Christmas from Verve's Ornamental Christmas and punched that out with the SU Word Window Punch. I pierced a hole in the sentiment and used a jump ring to attach it to the cording. So simple! I hope you like it, and thanks for stopping by!

The Martha fern punch again! I'm really going to have to get it. This little birdhouse is sooooo cute - what a great idea for a handmade gift that isn't a card!

I know! I made one for my mom because she loves birdhouses : ) How was your trip?

My trip was um....long story....but mostly good. The weather threw off our plans...too much snow going and coming back. And taking a vacation the week before Christmas was just not a good idea.
Hope you had a great Christmas, Kerri!
