December's Stamp of the Month...."Year Round Cheer"

Welcome to the CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!
December 2012's Stamp of the Month is called.....
****Year Round Cheer****

The blog hop makes a circle so if you are starting here just continue until you make your way back and you will have made it through them all.  If you have already started and are coming from Maureen OSullivan's blog, "Let's Give 'em Something to Scrap About"then you are on the right track.

It's been a couple of months since I participated in the SOTM blog hop due to...what else? School (work).  Why couldn't I have been born a woman of leisure?  LOL  At any rate I missed it and decided to MAKE the time to play along.

This month's set is cute and I can think of a lot of ways that it could be used, as I'm sure you've seen throughout the hop.  However, since it certainly does scream calendar, I wanted to try and do something a little different.

My eye was immediately drawn to the adorable bird.  Besides, I love anything that says, "I love you".)  ;)  I then started thinking about using one of the 3D cuts on my Artiste Cricut cartridge. Purse? Matchbox? Box?  Then I saw a box that looked like a birdhouse!  Bird + Birdhouse = the cute little creation below (if I say so myself).

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Paper:  DakotaColonial White CSCocoa CS, Whisper CS, Olive CS
Stamps Used: Year Round Cheer 
Inks: CocoaPacifica, Olive, Barn Red
Other: Cricut Artiste, SpongeMicro-tip ScissorsPaper Trimmer, Bone Folder, Circle Punch (Fiskars), ATG Adhesive (Scotch)

Here's a look at the entire stamp set.
