For my project today, I used the super cute stamp set: Garden Shed designed by Doug Applegate, which comes with such sweet sentiments - my favorite of which is "the road to a friend's house is never long" ... I love that sentiment!. First I sponged a cloud background using the Cloud Border Die and then stamped the shed twice - I colored the roof on one of the stamped images with blue and green copics and then colored the "body" of the shed on another and then cut the roof and layered it onto one image.
I also cut the windows out (so that the shutters open) and the windows and doors are layered onto the image. I added the Cloud Border die with some glitter to the top and then added a little yellow button with twine for the sun. The grass is punched out and then I used the Picket Fence die for the bottom but made sure that the drive way (a separate stamp) came out in between the fence. And then I stamped the cute little birdie taking a bird bath on the bottom left and colored it in with copics. I loved making this card - it was so much fun to add little fun features to the card like the bird bath and cobble stone pathway: here is another angle of the card:
