Home Sweet Home altered book

Hello, friends and visitors!
Spring is just around the corner which makes me so happy. If you love Spring like I do then you are going to love our new challenge theme at Stamps and Stencils!
Our lovely Toni is hostessing the challenge this month and she has chosen the theme: 'Chirpy, Chirpy, Cheep, Cheep - Put a Bird On It'!
This is how she describes her wonderful challenge theme:

One of the joys at this time of year, is to wake up to the glorious sound of birdsong. The challenge this month is in celebration of our fine, feathered, friends. We would love to see your mixed media projects, that include at least one bird. Whether it's a  journal spread, an assemblage or card, just make sure that a little dickie bird features somewhere. Please don't forget to include stamping, or stenciling or both. Can't wait to see your creations!

I was so inspired by Toni's challenge theme to alter a book and here is what I came up with:

Secret Santa at Anything But Cute

Hello, everyone!
I hope you are well and have a wonderful time!

I can't believe Christmas is just around the corner! For me, this is the most wonderful time of year, a time to share with family and friends!
We decided to have a Secret Santa exchange on the Anything But Cute Design Team this year! How fun is that?
We all love to get a lovely surprise at Christmas, right?

I would like to share what I sent and what I received!

I created a Christmas card for my lovely blog friend and a teamie, a super talented Niki
She loves rustic glam so I decided to go in that direction in creating a card for her and this is the result.

Nostalgic Christmas Window

Hi, friends!

Our new challenge has just started today at Stamps and Stencils

Toni is hostessing the challenge this month and she has chosen the theme 'Christmas Wishes'.

Here is how she describes her challenge theme:

Ahhhh! Christmas, like it or lump it, it rolls around every year and seems to arrive faster than ever. If you celebrate Christmas, it's likely that you'll be making cards, gift tags, decorations or even creating your own wrapping paper. My Christmas Wish is to see some of the creative things you make, in order to spread a little seasonal love to your families and friends. My only request is that you include some stamping or stenciling or even both!

I was inspired to create a Christmas nostalgic window for this wonderful challenge theme.
