Birdhouse Neighborhood - Stampin' Up! Flying Home

 After 5 inches of rain the last day it's a good thing these birds live in houses up on stilts!  It has been rainy and wet for a few days with storms rolling through but last night it was just rain here in Richmond but a lot of it! All. Night.  They even cancelled school today due to flooding in our county.  The dreary weather hasn't done anything to help my photography either that's for sure.  And it looks like more of the same for the next few days!

 This is a simple design with just some easy stamping and coloring with markers.  I used a bit of the Sale-A-Bration Bubbles and Fizz DSP to back the stamped birdhouses.  That little rooster wind vane just cracks me up!  If you like the Flying Home set don't wait to order it as it will be retiring at the end of the Occasions catalog sale period on May 31.

  I pulled my colors from the Delightful Daisy DSP and used markers to color.  Even though the colors in the paper are softened to more of a pastel hue I think they translate well into a more bold and saturated look here.

  The sentiment is from the Sunshine Sayings set and is stamped on a piece of Pool Party.  I added a Night of Navy baker's twine bow and some retired Night of Navy candy dots because I still have a TON of them left!

  Stay dry!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
