Hey Chickie!

Hey there! I had some time to get inky yesterday, so I created another entry for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge!!!

Here's the inspiration photo:

And here's my creation:

I LOVE that little birdie from Chubby Chums!! Isn't she ADORABLE?? And of course I just HAD to paper piece her!

I embossed some kraft cardstock with a woodgrain embossing folder, cut it into strips and attached the strips to a piece of woodgrain patterned paper to "build" a little birdhouse! FUN! Then I die cut some circles and added some raffia and my paper pieced birdie inside!

Have you played along in the SPARKS Challenge yet?? Head on over to the Paper Smooches Blog for all of the details!!!
