Hello to all my friends, followers and visitors.

This is my take on it.
A Shoe-House Fall Card
5.5 inches tall
This shoe-house is from the
Don't you love it already???? :)
You can find it on page #22.
I flipped it on my Gypsy so it will be looking to the right.
I used the Tiny Mosaics cuttlebug folder (one of my favorites) for the roof and the chimney. The chimney was added because I felt it needed something else in the top. As you can see it was a good addition, nothing fancy but it did make a difference. ;)
The beautiful papers are from Prima. The orange cardstock from American Crafts.
Remember you can click on the photos for a bigger view.
The leaves to the left are from the Cindy Loo cartridge and the flower I made with a paper punch.
Everything has been inked and blinged ;).
I added some glossy accents to the windows for a "glass like" shine.
The wheel barrel is from the Freshly Picked cartridge and the pumpkin from A Child's Year. I used the hide contour feature on the pumpkins.
This is how the back of the card looks.
and this is the inside.
I added another pumpkin and more punched oak leaves to the inside.
and here is that beautiful shoe house card again.
(many hours were invested in the making on this card)
lol...for real....I guess you gotta love what you do to really enjoy the process.
On another note,
I want to acknowledge a person I met through Etsy. Her name is Krista and she used to be my customer when I first opened my shop. You all know I neglected my shop while taking care of blogging and I just started listing again. When Krista saw my name on Etsy, she quickly contacted me to welcome me back. She now has her own shop and she just became my follower here. Krista was always a darling to me and as you can see a good friend too.
This is one of the reasons I love the internet. I have made so many nice friends.
You guys are a great example of it.
I am very happy knowing Krista was real to me too.
Thanks Krista for the nice Welcome,you really warmed my heart.
Now, really quick........click HERE to go to "The Cuttlebug Spot" and see what the other designers have made for your enjoyment this week. Get inspired and have fun participating on this week's challenge
and I see you again on Wednesday when I will be presenting the
finale of Playing with Serenade.
