Home Sweet Home

I love quaint cottages surrounded by flowers! I created this little yellow cottage with its white window boxes filled with flowers, using the Home Sweet Home Thinlits Dies. The cottage has a white arched door and white arched windows, topped with a shaker tile roof. I plan to fill this little cottage with treats (what else but Lemon Drop candy!). I left the two top panels (roof) open to access the treats and glued shut the bottom. The front door has a Rhinestone door knob and the door does open!!! The Sweet Home stamp set and matching Home Sweet Home Thinlits are a carryover for next year's catalog! Yay! Thanks for stopping by, please leave me a comment.
