all in a row.....

........house garland, I found a pic on katydiddys blog and got hit right between the eyes with my crafty mojo, so I had to get up and create it, although there is a wonderful tutorial on lauras blog for this, I went in blind with my papers, card and stamps,and made up my own templates. I chose to use the bluehill & rose garden papers from papermania as they matched the batch of felt roses I made last friday perfectly. I also got playing with my black and white pens to draw the windows and doors, taking inspiration from my paper artsey stamps.......so here she is hanging proudly in my hall :)

hope you all have a wonderful weekend, I am off now to pour a glass of red and get working on my birdhouse, happy friday peeps, hugs m xx
