I've decided to play along with the House Challenge over at Something Completely Different. Actually, this challenge fell right into my lap. I was already making a house card, actually 2 house cards. I always make two. Had the house already cut out and half decorated. The first house is for a different challenge and I will hopefully be posting it tomorrow. But I digress . . .so anyhow, this was my own house template designed back in 1984, not that any house templates are very different I guess, just that this one is sorta 3-d, not quite as thick as a shaker card but thick enough to give the impression of a room behind the window. I keep going off on tangents here, it's been that kinda day. . . sigh. Made my own bricks with a ruler. Cream cardstock sponged with burgundy, couldn't quite duplicate the color of the brick on my home that I was going for but I didn't try real hard. The window frame, window box and welcome friends sign are from a retired StampinUp set. The tulips were from a generic foam kids set.
The window is acetate, of course, the wallpaper on the wall inside the house is actually, well, just wallpaper from my wallpaper sample book, lol. The drawback lace curtains are lace scraps. I think the kitty in the window is StampinUp. There are real dried flowers in the 3-D flower box.
a special gift, oh happy day
