There's No Place Like Home

Hello crafters!  I cut the House Front die out of Pale Gray card.  I cut it again out of Slate Gray card and nipped away the two roof areas and glued them onto the pale gray base card.  Using the House Front Accessories set, I cut red curtains, red door, a bow for the front door,  a dog and cat and added them to the card.  I cut the Family Tree and a tire swing and added it next to the house.  I used the fence from the Garden Circle Scene set and added it across the garden with some grass in front of it.  I cut three clouds from the Twinkle Twinkle Clouds and Stars set and a couple of birds.  I used the There's No Place Like Home Sentiment cut out of slate gray and black card.  I shadowed it then glued it to the top right corner.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8 1/4"  x  9 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue this is fabulous, this collection of house front dies was a real surprise at launch, you sure do have a way of throwing something totally different to us collectors of your dies,and it's lovely to see that you've made 'a picture' using at least 3 other collections of your dies, makes us think of warmer days again in the UK. Hoping Muriel and Donna return real soon.
Stay well and safe everyone, sending love to all xxx

Hi Sue,

This is a wonderful card. The houses are so beautiful and there are endless possibilities as to what sort of houses can be made. Indeed these two are beautiful.

Good morning Sue,
Love these houses as you can personalise to the recipient, they set a lovely scene & would be ideal in a box frame. Yvonne xx

Good morning Sue and all.
A beautiful card to start off another week.
Getting closer to Christmas every day and I haven't yet finished the cards for family and friends.
I'm without heat and hot water for the last week which doesn't help at all.
Have a good day.

I love this card, Sue. It reminds me of "the American dream : a white house with a white picket fence. And have a dog named Spot." It's still a dream for many …

Hugs from Toronto to you all.
Stay safe and healthy.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love the picture you have created here using a mix of both old and new dies. You have left the front door open - I wonder who or what is behind it :-) My Cottage cards had Christmas trees in the hall.
