A Very Big House In The Country


It's been a chilly 13 degrees in the kitchen recently, and I've taken to wearing my gloves!
Have  you ever tried using your phone with gloves on - it's impossible!!
Time to turn the heating on, I think.

Here's my card for today.


I stamped a little, forest landscape and added a big, red house.
 
I could just picture, being snowed in, in that red cabin -
with all the family there, a roaring log fire and lots of great food and drink.
Sounds like fun :-)

Normally, I would throw glitter at this little scene, but I wanted something a little more subtle.
so, I used a thin, glitter pen to add some moonlight sparkle
to the trees and landscape.
You can just about see it on the photo below, it's a little more sparkly IRL.
