I'm A Home Owner ...

... well technically it's a second home but I would have to have some Alice in Wonderland magical potion to shrink myself to fit into it!  A few weeks ago I spent a very happy weekend crafting in the countryside with 7 of my friends. We hired a lovely cottage in the middle of nowhere in the Yorkshire Dales - I don't know what was worse, the car journey there in the dark on the Friday night over the moors wondering if I was going to plunge down a ravine or drive into a wall because it was so dark and totally relying on my SatNav to guide me left or right or the journey home on the Sunday in the daylight when I could see exactly what I almost drove into!!  Anyway ... whilst we were there my lovely friend Gail showed us how to make the cutest little chipboard houses - and this is mine!


Gail had seen something similar on the 2GypsyGirls blog and had a go herself and because it was cute we obviously wanted to have a go ourselves so badgered her until she told us how to :)

I added the little doggie when I got home, he looks just like my Haggis

I used:
These digital papers from Nitwit Collections
The little doggie is a Christmas Tree decoration from Harrods and the window and arch of the doorway was cut with a Tim Holtz sizzix die
