A bird in the hand....

..Is worth 2 in the bush!
Does anyone actually know what the hell that means!!!
Anyway i only used it for a catchy title!!
This is my entry for this weeks Sunday Stamper which has the theme of 'Birds'
This fab ickle wooden house comes untreated ready to alter and is available HERE for the bargain price of just 99p {along with several other bargains i bet you wont be able to resist lol}
I jazzed mine up by first colouring the house with brushed corduroy distress ink, then i printed off a set of one of Tims alphas from his Distressables CD and backed each tile onto chipboard and distressed some more with ink and sandpaper.
I stamped a couple of stitchel birds onto chipboard, smidged a bit of colour on um and cut em out.
Then i just placed and stuck it all together. I finished by removing the gold thread the house came on and added a bit of chain which also has a danglie bit for the birdy inside the house to play with.
These are really fun, and just the right size for a tree decoration.. so stock up for christmas lol

Cute little bird house! I think the saying basically means that you can eat the one you caught which is better than going hungry watching the two who got away!
