I needed a gift for a friend's daughter so, of course, I made a house since that's what I do. Sometimes I am inspired and feel like everything comes together and the house looks really good. That is what happened with this project, I think.
Stamps and Stencils - Chirpy, Chirpy, Cheep, Cheep which is a celebration of birds. I don't have many birds on this project, but just like last year on my Easter houses, I added a bird on the top because I know the little girl will enjoy having a birdie on her little house.
Country View Challenges - Inspired by Tim Holtz - The basic house shape is one I designed myself, but many of the other aspects of the Rose Cottage are inspired by Tim - the crackled siding, the roses, the rooftop, almost all of the colors, the grit paste on the lawn, etc. I guess the big thing about his inspiration is that his products and teaching let our imagination carry out things we couldn't have done otherwise.
Thank you for reading my blog. I hope the transition from winter to spring is going well for you. Our weather is confused which means it confuses the trees too. Mostly I worry about the peach trees in my area of South Carolina because we have a few very cold days coming up after seriously spring-like weather for the past couple of weeks.
