Little house

Hello there ...
I hope you are well and had a good weekend ...
I am really hoping that my Aunt may be allowed home either today or tomorrow ... keep your fingers crossed for us ...
She has made such good progress and wants to be home now. Yesterday when I was at the hospital  a frail old lady passed away ... It was so sad and makes me even more grateful that my Aunt is recovering.

Before I came to Lincoln I made a little house box for my Aunt ... I like to make these at Christmas but I didn't have time to photograph it before I had to leave home so my photos are not marvellous ... I don't have an editing program on my laptop ... But here it is 


I hand cut the house using a template by Lauren Meader which she designed for PTI a long time ago and embossed card stock with my TH folder to which I applied Antique linen distress ink first


The windows and door I cut on the Cameo and backed with some acetate (that had a criss cross pattern on) and some red paper from MME 


The roof was covered in self adhesive fabric by Papermania ... covered in various buttons and a generous helping of both mica flakes, glitter and white flower soft


The roof lifts off ...


And I thought you may like to see the little lady who has kept me company all week ... meet Sheba


Ok ... I have a lot to do now so I'll bid you a wonderful day ... I'll be back tomorrow with my DT project for City Crafter ...

Thanks so much for visiting me and for all your prayers

Till soon
