Watch the Birdy(house)!



I was having a play around with some stamps tonight when I decided to cut and decorate one of my Cricut/Robo birdhouses. (You can find 3 of them on my other site, email me for the address or google "my crafty files"). I don't have many supplies with me so couldn't do much more than stamp and colour them - I wanted to add glossy accents to the "stiches" holding the panels together, but didn't even have that with me.

I've tried to make a little animation so that you can see all sides of it - I hope it works for you! :)
Feedback welcome, click any image to see it larger.
