On the 4th day of Christmas.....

It is time for our next MDUC challenge!! Yayayayay!

This week we are looking for Christmas Decorations. Yup. Perfect timing isn't it?

I wanted to make a mini birdhouse ornament ... well... the plan is to make 24 of them to use as an advent calendar,but so far I just have one completed and the rest trimmed and scored ready to assemble :o).

The yummy papers are by The Scrap Cake and are called Cosy Xmas. I couldnt find them anywhere in Aus so ended up buying them from the US. They arrived this week. If you would like some yourself, have a look at The Flying Unicorn.

The sentiment is by Stampendous and is one of their nifty clings.

 And a third mini Tilda to finish off the little bird house.

I had fun making the birdhouse and thought I'd share the template I made (just right click and open it in a new window).

 I just used the smallest Scalloped Rectangle nestie to cut out the little window. I saved the piece that was cut out though to use behind the number.

And just a couple of cute pics to share to finish off... in a house full of boys, you find red sports cars everywhere!

And it just wouldn't be Christmas without Bob the Builder in the back of a Ford F150 now would it?

Ahh... gotta love them :o) Its the kids that make a house a home. When I find these little boy touches around the house I can't help but grin like a crazy person.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
