A Bird House for Dad...

If you've followed me on FB, I'm sure you've seen the pictures of the awesome bird houses my dad is building.  Yes, he's retired... FINALLY... and yes, he's finding a way to spend his time.  My dad is actually VERY crafty though he'd NEVER let anyone know. LOL  As I was growing up I remember him doing... Tri-Chem Paintings (one of which he did of Pinocchio and had framed for my son's room)... he's done latch hook rugs... put together with perfect precision, model cars and painted with even more perfection... and he's loved putting big complicated puzzles together (again, one big one he framed for my daughter's room).  So when he started building bird houses AND designing them for each person's taste, I was not surprised!!! Oh and YES I did get a purple one! Hee

So, today, I am sharing a "thank you" card I made for him using Theresa Momber's last set, "Birds and Blossoms". When I saw this I KNEW I had to have it just for this very reason!!!  And, since my dad's favorite color is blue... the flowers were my personal touch to him.  Not to mention the bird houses he made for he and mom were green.  ;-)

My card base is Pure Luxury Ocean Mist layered with Lemon Drop.  I added some DP from my stash.  I stamped my image on White Cryogen from the Paper Temptress and colored with my Copics then cut it out.  I layered more Ocean Mist and Lemon Drop then distressed the edges before adding it under a strip of Jute Ribbon then added my birdhouse using Pop Dots.  I did the same to the flowers... stamping, coloring and adding with Pop Dots to raise them up a bit.

I gotta say, my bird coloring leaves a LOT to be desired! LOL  But when you're trying to get "inky" and craft a bit while trying to care for a healing husband, well, there just isn't time to try to look up bird colors! LOL  Oh well... next time.  I just couldn't wait to use this fabulous set from Theresa and I KNOW there will be many more opportunities to use it in the near future!!

I hope you're having a GREAT Saturday and you're mot digging out from snow like we are... again.  But it doesn't look like it will be around long even though I hear more is in the near future.  Ugh!

As always, I appreciate your coming by.  YOU'RE the reason I LOVE posting and creating new projects to share!!! *HUGS*

Ha ha...I think your bird coloring is just perfect! We have some birds outside eating the bread we threw out there, and they look just like yours :) Great card, Tina, and I know that your dad will be thrilled to receive it! Hugs...
