Cardinal Birdhouse

I tried so hard to get a good picture of this cute birdhouse, and this is the best I could do. I'm a little shaky this morning. I've been up since 2 AM, and spent the morning cooking. I had an hour for the challenge, and am I glad I did.
The template for this project was so easy, and I made myself a little crazy adding things to it, like the ribbon wreath out of SKINNY ribbon. I love the way it looks around the entrance to the house. You know how I feel about RED, and so I had to have a cardinal on the perch.
I hung it on my tree so you could get the whole effect. I'm off to the Dr., and I'm feeling a little uneasy about the driving, so maybe that's making me a little off.
I hope you are having fun in your holiday preparations, and that you are taking some time to relax. Have a great day.
