My little Birdhouse

I made this little birdhouse to sit on a shelf in my room.  My poor husband has to live with all the "cute things" that I make.  He is such a sport!  This was made for the monthly challenge over at the Cricut Circle Blog.  Their challenge was to select items from a "tic-tac-toe" square.  I picked the horizontal middle row: ric rac, ruffles, and a bird.  The ruffle "shingles" were made with crepe paper gathered through my sewing machine.  The cricut cuts (bird, house trim, orange flower on the house) are from Give A Hoot.  The birdhouse was purchased in the dollar bin at a craft store and covered with paper.
