Birdhouse side step

Hello Stampers!

So what is on your agenda for today?   I have nothing planned for today so I will spend some time playing in my craft room.  I have a few cards I need to get made so I have something to post the next few days.  I have to work around Zoie as she will want to help.

My card today is one I created for the Technique Time Tuesday challenge.  The challenge this time is to create a Side Step card.  While I was watching the video I thought it would be fun to make a birdhouse for the full side panel.  I created the bird house first then I needed to do the steps.  I thought it would be good to have some flowers and of course I could not resist using my fringe scissors to make the grass.  Here is my creation.

When I first cut off the sides of the top of the birdhouse, I cut it too close and the front of the card and back were not connected.  I redid it and did much better the second time.

When I went to the challenge blog to check out the challenge for this month, Mynnette had posted some sad news.  This will be the last month of her challenges.  I was so sad as I have loved doing a technique challenge each month.  Guess I will have to find a new technique challenge to do.

Thanks for visiting me today!  Will you take some time to play today?  Have a Terrific Tuesday!
