Sketch Saturday #298 with Oak Pond Creations

It's Saturday and time for another sketch from 
sponsored by the oh so cute
Oak Pond Creations

Alex is responsible for our super cool sketch this week.  I first looked at it when I was reclining so it appeared rotated and I instantly thought "Bird House"  - well who wouldn't?  And I came up with this...
I cut the birdhouse shape by hand from First Edition Bird Song papers and added a Spellbinders roof and doorway.  My birdy is a shop-bought embellishment probably by K&Co but I can't guarantee it.  The tags are cut from the same paper pad and the background DP is from a coordinating pad.  Now perhaps you can see why I thought of a birdhouse.
My fellow Saturday's have created wonderful inspiration for you so there is no excuse for not playing along this week.

I can totally see a birdhouse. You always manage to make the most interesting cards.

Happy to see my good friend Kim from Oak Pond Creations is sponsoring this challenge. She is super marvelous and I spend lots of fun Saturdays at Oak Pond crafting with her.

Hi Lesley!
Thank you so much for your sweet comment at my blog!
Everything's fine with me, thanks! :) I've been very busy with school the last couple of months, so unfortunately I haven't been able to do a lot of crafting lately, due to both lack of time and lack of inspiration. But after visiting your blog today, I certainly feel the inspiration coming back!
You always create the most gorgeous things! Love the birdhouse, it's so cute! What a great idea!

Hope everything's fine with you too!
Sending you big hugs!

Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog - had to come see what you were making for Sketch Saturday and love your birdhouse, and the bird just waiting to make the house her new home. So ready for spring but we are supposed to get hit with 6-12 in. of snow this weekend. Oh well good time to stay in and paper craft. Thanks again.
