I made eight cards while we were on vacation, staying at a cabin. I brought very limited supplies with me - white and ivory cardstock precut into cards bases and also quarter-cut for stamping on, my small ink cubes, my small Papertrey Ink sets and other small sets, scissors, Scor-Buddy, small paper cutter, some pearls and enamel dots, Star Dust Stickles and Liquid Pearls, a couple pieces of black cardstock and colored scraps. Oh, and also some die cuts and "card parts" from very recently. I think that's about it. It was fun to have them with me, as the weather was not so great to begin with! I did pack it all up on Wednesday, so these cards were made in the first three days. 

For this card (which I think will go to my sister who just moved back to Minnesota from Georgia, along with a bottle of wine we purchased at a local winery) I used stamps from a small Technique Tuesday set. I stamped the birdhouse on blue textured cardstock and cut it out. The branch and leaf were stamped with colored inks and I stamped the bird with black and used a marker on it.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Neat little card. It could be used for so many occasions with different
sayings on it. GREAT idea taking supplies on your vacation. Just curious... What did your husband do while you made cards?????

Very cute card...reminds me to make a "Happy Housewarming" card for my son on the purchase of his first house! Thanks, Lynette, for the inspiration!

Gosh, your supplies were very well thought out! I know I'd just have a bunch of stamped images thrown into my Copic carrying case. I may not get many colored, but I'd feel better having them with me. I know you mentioned rain... This one is so cute! Love birdhouses!
