Christmas Wishes to Warm Your Heart and Home........

Home/House is the challenge at the Jingle Belles Rock ~~ there needs to be a house on your Christmas project. I had quite the time deciding what I would use, in fact I brought several "house" stamps with me this weekend. so look for at least one more before the challenge is over on Wednesday. Here is what I ended up using.

I used the large background house stamp from Hero Arts Stamped it in tuxedo black memento ink layered it on red and on a black base, I added a bit of colour to the houses,. The car with the tree is also from Hero Arts, I coloured, fussy cut and added clear acetate to the windows.

Close up but you really can't see the acetate.

The sentiment on the front and the inside sentiment are from Stampabilities

I am entering this in:
Jingle Belles Rock ~~ O' Little Town of Bethlehem 

12 Months of Christmas ~~ Optional theme the nature of Christmas

Thanks for visiting today and it's one more holiday card for my stash.

Wow, I love how much your colouring adds to the background stamp! Incredible fussy-cutting there, too. Love it!
