Holiday House

Welcome to my November 2013 Papertrey Blog Hop post.
The theme is Holiday Houses. I went the gingerbread route.
Here's my creation:
This was so much's a close up of my hand drawn window ...
Love the icicles...They're a die from My Favorite Things.
Here's some of the supplies I used:
glitter...of course! The loop border is a die from The Cat's Pajamas.
The only candy canes I could find that were small enough were on designer paper.
I wanted to put little candies all around the door and window....couldn't find any....
so I made them from white cardstock and my trusty 'ole paper punch! A couple layers
of glossy accents took them from flat and dull to rounded and glossy.
I think I'll use some nylon thread and make a loop from the roof so I can
hang it on my Christmas tree this year.
Thanks to Papertrey for having such a fun challenge!
Oh, by the way, if you'd like to make a house of your own
you can find the pattern here:
