The Birds have it!

My Girl Scout troop decided to make birdhouses to sell at a craft fair to raise money for our NYC trip in the summer.  A parent’s brother owns a construction company, Brasil & Sons Remodeling and was kind enough to donate not only the wood but also pre-cut the houses.  So last week we hammered away and made these great birdhouses.  Now the back of my car looks like this:

The houses are amazingly huge!  Next week we’re going to paint them and I can’t wait to see what awesome designs the girls are going to come up with.  So to thank Mr. Brasil I made this masculine Thank you card for the girls to sign!

 The house itself came from Cricut Create a Critter cartridge on page 35 – it’s actually a dog house but I cut out the shadow house at 3″ in brown cardstock and used a circle punch for the hole.  I used a piece of black cardstock for the shadow inside. The branch is on page 25 under the Accessory tab and I embossed it using a squiggle folder.  I used a scallop punch and sponged around the scallop with SU Marina Mist to make the clouds. Using a white ink pad I stamped the word home and then I used a white gel pen to make the dashes.  I think it’s really cute!

Take a look outside and watch the birds!  Did you put seed out lately?  We have birdhouses in our backyard tree and we’ve been watching them feed their young!  Nature is so great!  Have a Magical Day!
