One Day Birthday Blog Hop!

Happy Birthday to If It's Groovy! Yeah it is our 3rd year!!! It is so hard to believe that we have been an active blog this long so THANK YOU for supporting us. We have a little blog hop to celebrate today and we hope you will enjoy as you make your way through each of The Groovy Chick's blogs showing projects made using the letters out of the word Birthday.


I have "B" and decided to make a birdhouse :)

I used papers from Paper Studio, Making Memories "Shopping Bag" acrylic paint, store brands of other colors, and together decorated this little home. I cut the pieces of paper first using a Fiskars Coastal Knife, which I love with it's ergonomical design, then attached them to the birdhouse with Aleene's tacky glue. Before attaching I did mix the paint into the glue so I managed to decorate at the same time as affixing :) I then just finished it off with some embellies, twigs and a bird cut from the same pad of paper used to design the house. To keep the bird from bending too fast I added lots of layers of the same glue to help harden up the paper.



































TFL! Now it is time to go by and visit Michelle with her letter"I"

p.s. I am sending a little goodie bag to one person who leaves some luv at all of the blogs on this hop. Not to fret there are 7 ")

  16. I made it all the way around and loved the projects the Groovy Chicks created for their assigned letter (and how Viji even added the letter "Y" at the end so "Birthday" would be complete!) As always, I am sure you put a lot of time and effort into making this happen, Deb. You are definitely someone who makes things happen! Thanks for putting the invitation on the Fiskateer board, since I don't seem to make it to "blogland" much lately! Hugs, Marianne
