I am sharing one of the wood pieces I bought from Michaels today. Their wood pieces seemed to be more finished and bigger, I haven't tried coloring them to know if they would take markers well, but I am sure if you wanted to paint them that would work.
I made the frame by taking two different dies and taping them onto my cardstock at the same time and cutting them at the same time. The bird cage is cut from my Cricut machine.

For my longer time followers you may have remembered me talking about the oldest couple in our church, the gentleman took a very bad fall last year. He had to move into a healthcare center that could take care of him and his wife had a bad fall too and they ended up getting into the same room after some time. Well he was told that he wouldn't walk again, and after much hard work our Pastor showed us a video of him walking with the aid of a walker, isn't that amazing. This card is going to his wife for her birthday with a little note letting them know how much they are missed and how happy we were to see him walking again. It was very emotional and moving for me so I thought I would share, always good to hear amazing news.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
I have a question for those of you that follow blogs through Bloglovin... are you getting your email updates on those who have posted? I had realized that I hadn't received and email update in a couple of days and just went on last night and saw some of what I have missed when I signed on, but it was so much easier getting email updates, just wondering if it is just me or if that is happening to everyone, Thanks.
