Merry Monday #142 Challenge

Hey Everyone!  
I hope that you are all having a fantastic week so far.  
Last week I had so much fun playing along with the Merry Monday Challenge that I decided to play along again this week.
That's pretty good.  2 weeks in a row.  My question to myself is why the heck didn't I do this before, because it is way to much fun!

The Challenge this week is to create a card with a house.

I have a lot of stamps which are houses that could have all be totally perfect for this challenge, however the moment that I saw the challenge there was a stamp that popped into my head, and I just couldn't resist using it.  Although it is not your traditional type of house it is a "house".

Just like last week I want to continue to build a stash of Christmas cards, so I created 2 of the same card.  The wording of the cards are done in slightly different colours, but for the most part they are identical.
I hope that you all enjoy my card.

Here's the close up of the image that I used for my card.

Here's the card from a front view.

Here's a side view of the card.
(This view allows you to better see the dimensions)

Here's a shot of the 2 cards.

I will do my best to link to all the supplies that I used for this card, however not all of the products may still be available as they are from my stash.


Sweet Christmas - used for the gingerbread house and the wording
Bakers Twine - used along the bottom of the card
Distress Ink - used to water colour
Clear Glitter - used on the roof top, the chimney and the 2 hearts
Pink Paper - pink paper with glittery snowflakes (cannot find a source to link)
Circle Pattern Paper - used for the top strip along the top.
Blue Paper - from my scraps, not sure its original source
