Tuesday's Trigger

After being away from vacation, I have been creating like CRAZY!! I think I am catching up with the crafting time! So it's time for Tuesday's Trigger Home Sweet Home .
This trigger is just too sweet! I was compelled to make something.... I ended up with making a birdhouse with this new set called Right At Home .
 happy birthday
To make it more like a birdhouse, I took a twig from our Flowering Almond tree. At the time it was almost midnight when I ventured out to retrieve the twig. Dr. John was wondering what I was doing...I told him that I had to.... "garden" (LOL)! He had a funny and perplex look in his face and then pretended to lock me out....it was somewhat hilarious, come to think of it! Anyhow I think the twig totally works  in this! I also love the idea of ric rac, button, woodgrain from the inspiration photo.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you are having fun at home if you are not out and about... There is no place like home!

Thanks for the giggle! I'll bet Dr. John thought you were crazy! Especially if it was as cold as it has been around here at night! I love that you used a real twig - makes it look even more "home"-made! Your birdhouse is delightful and I love the two, sweet birds! Great take on the trigger, my friend! :)

Sweet card! I think that your cardmaking process here is calling out to be featured in a "What is Dr. John thinking?' post. LOL ;-)

LOL on the midnight winter gardening! What did you use to get the twig to stick? Sticky tape? (Okay, I am chuckling inside about the stick to stick). *sigh* geeky...
I think that is a perfectly triggered trigger-is that even correct? I think I am a bit winter "mad".
