TEAPOT TUESDAY - FOR THE BIRDS

Hi all!! I promised I would be back with something fun yesterday but I had another migraine and spent the day trying to get rid of it. So, today I will share my Teapot Tuesday challenge card! Cindy has given us a really fun teapot as inspiration this week!! You could do soo much with this!! I decided that is looked kind of woodsy and reminded me of birds so I went with the owl theme and pulled the colors from the teapot. Oh, I know the teapot says bakery and I am thinking of doing another one, but this is what came to me first so I went with it! I just love the little windows and the door - totally reminds me of the owl house in Winnie the Pooh, lol!! I hope you guys play along, it's really fun and I have gotten to meet some super nice peeps through this challenge!! Here are all the deets on Cindy's blog - check it out! I will be back tomorrow with some fun things to share, right now I am going to go and lie down again as I still have a lingering headache from my migraine last night - uggghhh!! I know it's the weather and instant heat, but sheesh, enough already!! Enjoy the rest of your day!

Pretty! I love the stitching around the main image and the cordurouy buttons add to the overall woodsy feel to the card.

I hope your migraine has gone away. I'm not a sufferer but I can't imagine how horrible they are to deal with.
