Not to put to finer point on it..............

.........You're the only bee in my bonnet ,
Make a little birdhouse in your soul!
You know how it is, you hear a song and that it.......its stuck in your head all day long.
I typed Birdhouse into google this morning with the hope of finding a template and was faced with the lyrics of the above song, so there it is. Ive driven Aiden nuts humming it!!! I never found what I was looking for either so had to go and make one up instead!!
The aim of this was to produce these.....
This month challenge at Vanilla Sugar is "Birdhouse" this first one is now proudly sitting on my shelf as storage for some of my punches.
