DT Creative Inspirations Challenge 11....and Crafty creations challenge and caardvarks..

Challenge 11 has been set by Jude and the theme is anything but a card or ATC so let your imagination run wild and happy crafting!!!!
Prize for this challenge is 30 yep 30 12x12 papers so go get crafting and check it out over at the Creative inspirations challenge blog.
What with having a pup in the house and work i dont have much time at the moment for my blog or crafting but am managing {just,lol}to keep up with my commitment to the DT soooooo what was i going to make hmmm?
Welcome to...."Home to Roost" a birdbox that Alex has had a sitting about outside waiting to go i snaffled it and with the help of some Basic grey papers and bits and bobs and Rosie getting in the way grabbing rolls of tape,ribbons and buttons and me chasing her i finally managed to alter it.
I like how it turned out but my pictures don`t do it justice as it was dull and raining at the time so will try and get round to taking more...if it ever stops raining that is,lol.
Well thank you for looking and hope you like it.
hugs from me
I am going to enter this in a challenge over at Crafty creations challenge...challenge 20...
the theme is how does your garden grow and can be anything from tools a scene or anything you find in your garden.
Also along at caardvarks the challenge is Depth perception so hope this meets the criteria.
thanks for looking

A bird house covered in Basic Grey?! How does it get any better! Fabulous!

I don't believe you've decorated a bird box! (you're madder than me!!)
It's really pretty....but I'm not sure your local bird estate agent will be able to get any would be bird buyers to move in!! (I'm only kidding!) It's really great, I think I'd use it as a money box, it's realllly lovely...and now I'm thinking I might have a go! How's the pup?? Chewed up your chairs yet? I've just had a phone call to go and play with two of the dogs I look after, as they're being pains in the butt!! They've coursed over two hundred pounds worth of damage~ would you believe~ chewing up ALL their owners car keys!

Buy 4 now!!!
