Alter, Altering, Altered

Just a quickie post to share an altered project I finished last week.  The 12x12 Graphic45 Bohemian Bazaar paper pad in my stash has been calling to me and I thought it might be an interesting choice to use on a birdhouse I bought forever ago at Michael's.  Actually I bought 3 of them--but the one I picked to bedazzle was the round one.  The conical roof was a challenge and I probably could have come up with a better treatment--perhaps in hindsight too many pearls.  I made it as one of my birthday gifts for my daughter.

I'm entering this in the "Round and Round"  challenge at Tuesday Throwdown 

We are having the loveliest weather here in the Phoenix area--82 degrees today with a slight breeze.  Perfect!  And....my roses are beginning to bloom.  Hope you're having a great weekend.  Hugs, Kathy

A few recent cards....

I'm such a lazy blogger.  It's not that I don't want to post, but somehow life always seems to hand me priorities higher than a blog post that probably nobody reads anyway.  Here are a few cards I've made in the past couple of weeks.  I am a new fan of two very talented cardmakers--Loll Thompson and Julia Stainton.  They inspired me with their awesome chops.
