Birds on a Fence

I belong to a great Yahoo Group located at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MTCHints-Tips/ It's a great bunch of gals and we share ideas and conversation. The group is less than two weeks old but we're growing at a nice pace. Anyways, each week a challenge is posted for us so that we can try something new or improve on something we already know how to do. We then share it with the group and pat each other on the back. Like everybody else, crafters love a compliment and they are plentiful in the group.

This weeks challenge was to create a box with a lid using our Cricut and if possible our Make the Cut program. I have thought and thought all week about what I wanted to do. I did quite a few boxes for my craft shows this past holiday season so I wanted to do something a little more challenging and unique. I did need to use Inkscape, which I am very clumsy with, to do the fence and bird. This was the most difficult item I've made but I am oh so happy with it.

I'm not posting a link directly on the blog as it is 2 files. I will be happy to share it with you if you would like it though. Since I did put so much work into I'm only going to ask a few small favors in return for me sending the files to you. 1. Leave a comment with your email so I know where to send it  2. Become a follower of my blog.  If you don't feel comfortable leaving your email on the blog you can send it to me in a private email at phonemommy@yahoo.com.

Easter grass would look best inside the box but seeing as it is 1:00 am here and I have no grass on hand, I had to use tissue paper. But, I was so excited to share it with you all that tissue paper had to do for tonight. I hope you like it as much as I do!

Until next time,
Happy Crafting!
