i cased my project from one of my fave designers, debbie marcinkiewicz from paper sweeties  . please click on her name to take you to her blog and give her a little love . hers is prettier than mine no doubt :) thank you debbie for the inspiration!
im entering this over at dlart for dianas anything goes linky party.
and craftin desert divas ribbon or twine linky party
for this i took a wood spool, inked it up with tea dye distress and added some paper. . i cut a circle from thin cardboard and hot glued it to the underside for better stability. it stood on its own fine im just a tad over cautious :) i made sure the hot glue covered the entire circle and extra dabbed in the spool hole so my dowel would be secure. i also inked that up.
i cut another circle a tad larger and glued on some moss added pearls for eggs and used my cricut and 50 states cart for the bird. for the bird house i used the cindylou cartridge.
i added a button and a  stamped sentiment (whimsical designs, everyday sentiments) and 2 ribbons . 
isnt this just sweet :) 
thanks so much for visiting me today :) and your kind comments always make me smile thank you so much for that :) happy crafting :) xxxshelly
