It's Saturday and I should be working outside in my yard but found some challenges I couldn't resist so here I am. Anyway, it is 97 degrees and I will wait until it cools down.

I made my card for the Inspiration Challenge, IC243 on Splitcoast Stampers. It was inspired by Birdhouse Blessings on Etsy. I've had this image colored a while so I'm glad to use it.

This card is also for the Sketch Saturday challenge:
There is plenty of inspiration for this sketch from their wonderful team.

It is also for the PaperPlay challenges:
Wow! This was 'Anything Goes'. How easy is that? My kind of challenge!

Pretty card! Love that bird house stamp. I have decided that for a winter project, I'm going to paint several birdhouses bright pretty colors and do some decorative painting on them (like sunflowers, etc.). Put a good coat of clear varnish and put them in the back yard with lots of flowers. Doesn't that sound like fun? :)
That stamp reminded me again of my upcoming project....cold weather sounds so good in this awful Southern heat. :)

Very sweet, Benzi! I just love those birdhouses, and your watercoloring looks wonderful. And look at the challenges you managed to work in!! Addictive, isn't it? I hope your heat isn't as bad now :)
