GIU.. I am your gal this week.. :) day 3

I have to tell you if you don't already know.. I just LOVE houses.. I don't know why but I do.. so this is the adorable stamp set (honey i'm home from Unity) I used today.. it is such a sweet set..I really love it.. I paper pieced the heck out of that house.. I used an exacto knife to cut out the windows. Something fun, I don't know if you can see it but I dry embossed/scored the back of the card, to give it a fun texture.. :) well thanks so much for stopping by today...
