For the Love of Birdhouses!

Hello Everyone! I have one gigantic post for you today! I just love all the birdhouses that Sandy over at Scribbles by Sandy has been creating!  I couldn't decide what image to use, so I just used them all and made a mini set out of them!  If you haven't discovered Sandy's wonderful site, and her lovely images, go HERE!
Ok, are you ready, it's a bit of a read, but I pray you won't be sorry! Then if you'd like, I'd love to hear which one you liked best!
For this one, I love blue as you can see and I thought that the tulips should stand on their own so I coloured them pink.  I am entering this card in For Fun challenges- just for fun.
I just love the little birdie on this one! I framed it in black to highlight the image frame!  I am entering this card in Stampin' Sister's in Christ's challenge - Use something new.  For this I have used a new clear sentiment stamp and the new digi stamp.
I love yellow roses (they mean friendship)and thought this image needed a yellow touch to it! This card I'm entering in Stamp and Create challenges - Anything Goes (monthly). This is a new challenge blog to me and looks fun!
 I printed out a second copy of this image and thought I'd give it a more delicate look.  I am entering this card in Sweet Stampin's challenge - glitter, bling, shine, sparkle.  I love the pearls on this and every girl who goes out with pearls shines in the spotlight.
I tried to give this one a bold look.  I think the two birds are hopefully having a "nice" chat atop the roof! I'm entering this card in Paper Creations Ink challenge - love and romance.  These birds have a wonderful place to share with each other.
I love the rose garden this little birdie looks to be guarding!  I am entering this card in Designed 2 Delight's challenge - Create a card with a heart.  I love the tiny hearts on this birdhouse so I thought it would fit! I am also entering this card in Penny's Paper-Craft challenge - To use birds.
I really liked this image to so I printed off a second of it as well.  This one making a bit more bold to highlight the black in it's border! I am entering this card in Annabelle Stamps challenge - Anything goes.
For me, this one is all about the ribbon and the sweet bows! I love buttons to so this one gets some.  I am entering this card in Sentimental Sunday's challenge - Ribbon + a sentiment.
Well, did you make it to the bottom?  Hope you enjoyed the cards I have to share with you today.  Remember leave me a comment of what one you liked best.  Thanks so much for dropping by! Hugs!

These are all fantastic, Jennifer! My favorites are the last two! I really like all the elements of the last one, but I like the contrast of the black ribbon of the second last. I also really like the blue bird on the second last! Thanks so much for sharing all of them!...Nancy :o)
