Let's Play House! Holiday Card

Sometimes Pammy likes to play house! This was one of those times. I had this cute paper from American Crafts that I had bought at Tall Mouse in Yorba Linda (like that plug?), and for some strange reason it was whispering to me, "If you build it they will come"! I have no idea who "they" are...kinda doubt they are baseball players. More likely HGTV elves! Lol. Anyway, I decided to create a house card, complete with shingles, snowy borders, and gingerbready (is that a word?) details. Thank the creative gods for Nesties, as they were used for all the windows and doors! The final touch was a tag at the top featuring the perfect sentiment from Stampendous! I had so much fun with this, just may need to make a whole village of holiday card houses. Time consuming, but soooo cute! Wanna come play house with me?

omgosh! Ok, I'm picking my jaw up off the ground now. Seriously, Pam this is amazing! And I can't believe that you build that from scratch with just Nesties. I thought it was a Cricut diecut at first. AMAZING!!!!

This is so dang adorable!!! Love it!!!! A whole village of house cards is an adorable idea!!! You should make tutorials for these and at Christmas time you can rival Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas. hehe
