I missed the last 2 weeks of SCD but pleased to say I have made it this week for the 'skinny' challenge which must include a house.

3x5inch canvas...this is my first time creating one and found the size a little awkward to work with but got there in the end, lol

The stamps are all Crafty Individuals along with the background paper and beautiful images the fab white chipboard house is also CI's....
I used TH distress inks to give the piece a soft colour.
if you would like to join in with this challenge you have 'til Thursday.
Thanks for looking.
Tonight I am off to see my Grandsons Film on the big screen in Middlesbrough, he has written, produced, directed and filmed it he also wrote and played the music for it.... how proud am I of CURTIS watch this
This is his 2nd year graduation in Film and TV
I will try to get a link for you to see it here.
Well done Curtis, the first in our family to go to UNI and his mum the second one, she is in her 1st year of TV and film

Although I like it all, I love the bird stamp. I have a similar one but I have no idea who made it, nor did I ever care until I started reading that people actually have the ABILITY to know the stamp manufacturer.

Great challenge piece. I always found skinny pages to be a challenge, too. Something about the proportions. Hope to see you for T Tuesday, too. That is, if blogger isn't "unavailable" like it's been since Sunday in my area.
