Just a Sentiment

Good morning to all my lovely blog friends I hope you are all having a great week I'm still recovering from our few days in Bournemouth staying with our friends. We had a great time but some late nights and  its a long journey from the North east. I hope by the time this goes to post I've managed to catch up on all your fantastic blogs.

As its Wednesday today sees the launch of a new challenge over at Crafting by Designs and our theme this week is Just a Sentiment. We have one sponsor this week

Prize is $10 credit to store

For my project I decided on Inky Impressions Home Family Blessings Sentiment and used it on a birdhouse wall hanging.



Wall Hanging Recipe

MDF Birdhouse from Strikes Garden Centre the wooden bead on the hanger came with it.
Papers are Pion Viintage Garden Phlox from Which Craft GNPE
Green card is Tim Holtz
Fence Die is Crafty Sentiments
Heart Punch on the eaves is  Martha Stewart and I used the cut out hearts to outline the opening in the birdhouse
Lace, pearl string  and twine are from my stash
Wooden Bird from Michael's Florida 
Spellbinder large oval die to cut the Sentiment 
Sentiment is Inky Impressions
Butterflies and the floral border are cut from a Pion Vintage Garden Sheet Borders from Which Craft GNPE

I hope you all enjoy you week and  find time to take a look at this weeks challenge.
Also today I want to say a special thank you to all of you who left some amazing comments on my last few posts you are all so lovely and  kind Hugs Carole x
