City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #68- Home Sweet Home

Hey I am back, barely rested as I have a lot of catch up here....

A new challenge this week at City Crafter Challenge Blog
Home Sweet Home
We want to see HOUSE, or HOUSES on your project, image of a house, a house template, altered item such as birdhouse etc... fun huh?

Sweet Linda gave me these little wooden houses for my birthday few months ago, the minute I saw it, I already know what I am going to do with these lovely little houses, this week's challenge at City Crafter is PERFECT for my HOUSE project!


well, she gave me 3 of those in different sizes, but I only have time to pretty up one for now....


I just a lot of goodies Charlene sent me when we do the ATC/Vintage package swap a while ago


I also applied some of the things I learn from a Mixed Media Art Journal class, such as image transfer...


picked up bits and pieces of scraps from my Pixie Kits


they are so fun to play with and I can't wait to pretty up the other 2 little houses




This week, we have talented Sandi Taloumis as our Guest
Do not miss her beautiful work!
And of course, we DT (Linda, Cheryl, Ros) always have lovely projects to inspire you, hop over now!


extra, extra.......

hey, something really cool is about to come your way, stay tuned!!!
