Summer Houses

The latest theme at Uniko Studios Challenge is Summer, along with this sweet photo



Isn't that house cute? I can just imagine the look on my granddaughters' faces if they had a chance to visit it!

I've used the photo as my inspiration for today's first card (sorry, I'm going to bombard you with cards today, I've been on a post-holiday crafting blitz while I waited for the umpteen loads of clothes to wash!). I die cut the "Colchester Houses" die and set it behind a green "lawn" dotted with die cut flowers. The sentiment was stamped with a freebie stamp that was the cover mounted gift on a magazine a month or two ago. Sorry, Uniko people, no Uniko stamp this month!



Every scrap of card I've used is from my snippets box, so I'm also playing along at Pixie's Snippets Playground  and as I've used no designer paper, I'm also joining in with the Alphabet Challenge, where I haven't played for months, as the current challenge is exactly that, No Designer Paper.
