Birdhouse


The theme for this weeks ABBA challenge is Birdhouses so I have altered an atc added a matchbox base and decorated it with twigs,feather,collage bird and egg, the roof is made from an old tomato puree tube put thro' the cuttlebug in an embossing file.

That is so clever - I haven't tried putting old tomato puree tubes through my cuttlebug yet - I must remember to save the next one! What a fantastic little house that is.
