So Excited!







Hi Everyone-
I just received some awesome news today! My little collage
birdhouse was one of the featured pieces for the July challenge
on Alter It Monthly! And there was also a random drawing and
I won an e-gift certificate from their wonderful sponsor, The Artistic Stamper.

If you have never participated in this challenge run by the
design team of Carol, Zuzu, and Gillian, take a look at their blog
and try to participate...their work is amazing! Each month is a
different theme.

For August, the theme is music.

A special thank you to Alter It Monthly and Jennie at The Artistic Stamper!

Hugs,
Cindy

You are on a roll, Cindy! Love it! I just saw a picture of another birdhouse today and I'd really like to try my hand at those as well.

Cindy, your collage birdhouse is fantastic. I love it. Congrats on getting the deserved recognition and also getting the gift certificate. It's always such fun to win something.

Alcohol inks are super. I have made some of my own using 1 small bottle of food coloring plus enough 70% alcohol to fill the small spray bottle. Red food coloring doesn't work so I used rit dye for it. If you mist onto gloss card stock it gives a fab effect. The bought alcohol inks are much better and have some awesome colors for backgrounds.

GOOD EVENING CINDY,
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL BIRD HOUSE. I AM SO VERY HAPPY YOU WON AND CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR GIFT CERTIFICATE.
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR DROPPING BY TO SAY HI. I LOVE VISITING WITH MY BEAUTIFUL NIGHT OWL, LIKE ME. I HAVEN'T BEEN AT MY BLOG FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS. I WAS ABLE TO MEET MY ATC SWAP PARTNER IN PERSON AS SHE TRAVELED THROUGH OKLAHOMA, ON WEDNESDAY. SHE WAS AWESOME AND SO TALENTED. IT WAS A SWELTERING DAY AND SHE WAS TRAVELING WITH HER SPECIAL LITTLE DOGS AND WE COULDN'T TAKE THEM INSIDE SO OUR VISIT WAS BRIEF.
ONCE AGAIN CONGRATS ON YOUR WINNING...YOU DESERVED IT. I WILL HAVE TO CHECK THIS BLOG OUT.
LOOKING FORWARD TO YOUR CREATIVE SUNDAY.
HUGS
SIMPLY DEBBIE

Anna @ Frosted Petunias said...

Congratulations Cindy! Your birdhouse is adorable and what a nice prize too. I think I might check out that challenge. I love doing them! Love all your dresses too! The bright yellow March one is my fave...then again March is my birthday month so maybe I'm biased, lol! Great job!!!

ongrats! your birdhouse is wonderful! I'm really enjoying visiting your blog. Thanks for the invite. You've introduced me to some new sites.

I love your August Dress on your sidebar. How clever as is your birdhouse. You have given me an idea for a wooden birdhouse that I have. I can decoupage it in old sheet music and a few other fun things. Thank you for the inspiration. Thank you also for the nice comment about the house. It was built in 1854 and is probably better made than what is being built now. Thanks for stopping by and saying hello.
