Paper Sweeties May Release Day!!!

Hi Friends!

Today is Paper Sweeties Release Day!  I want to share with you a project I made using the new May stamp sets.  They are available for purchase today!  The sweet little bird on the perch is from the stamp set, Sending SpringtimeThe sentiment is from the stamp set, Make Today Beautiful.  And, the shingles were stamped using the rectangle shape from the set, Fun Shapes.  Here is a closer look of the shingles...

Isn't that a pretty pattern?  Lots of cutting and stamping for those shingles, but it was well worth it!   If you look close, you can see little bird eggs in the nest.  I colored them with a copic marker.
I started with a wood bird house from Jo-Ann Fabrics and painted it brown.  I used my glue gun to adhere the sentiment, bird, flowers, nest, and Spanish moss.  Seam Binding(Paper Sweeties) was added to finish off my project.  
Thank you dear friends for dropping by today to see my project for Paper Sweeties!  Please visit the Paper Sweeties blog to see awesome inspiration from the design team!
Take care and have a wonderful day, hugs!
