Home Sweet Home at fashionable Stamping

Oh my Goodness how quickly are we whizzing towards Christmas, and how speedily did we get to our next Fashionable stamping challenge ?  I loved seeing your musical creations and am not sure how on earth I'm going to choose my favourites - but before that, this weeks theme is 'Home Sweet Home' set by the lovely Yvonne !  As always we need to see some stamping on your entry  -  DIGI stamps are NOT allowed. Our sponsor Marina from Cottage Crafts is allowing the winner to choose anything from her shop up to the value of €7 + postage and packing. 
With five weeks to go I'm still struggling to get my Christmas cards made but did manage this one using my new Tim Holtz on the edge die  - another Ebay bargain, I'm so addicted !

The houses are die cut from whitewash co-ordinations cardstock and gently sanded, I then mounted the strip on a piece of plain black card and added glitter to some of the windows. The wording along the bottom is a Kanban stamp. 
The background is distress co-ordinations card run through an embossing folder and again lightly sanded and some glitter added. The snowflakes are a Martha Stewart punch. So - share your Home theme cards and as always don't forget to check out the gorgeous inspiration from my team mates.

I'm sharing this over at The Stamp Man challenge which is Embossing.

Thanks for stopping by..Esther xx
