Hi all,

Well this isn't birthday cards, I got a little side tracked (very normal). I am really enjoying this week's Hero Arts challenge :). Especially when I saw these cute little houses at my LSS. I knew they would be just perfect for the Beyond Paper challenge. I think the hardest part on the birdhouse was waiting for the paint & ink to dry. I had every intention of stamping the roof as well, but ran into a slight problem. Being made the way they are the roof is uneven & of course that meant the stamping was well lets just say "YUCKY"! So I decided to cover it with BG paper (this is from the Porcelain range). I think doing the roof this way gives it a country feel, which for me is a good thing. My next project is to do the other one. Not sure on how to do the roof of that one yet. I don't have a lot of that paper left & because there is 4 sides (instead of two) not sure how the "seams" will look. I'll just have to think on it, something will come to me eventually.

Well tomorrow is the big day - Easter bunny will be a visitin' every one so from our household to yours "Hoppy Easter every Bunny!" Hope you get lots of Chocky's & have a safe & happy time. TTFN
