Old Saint Nick's House

Thank you for stopping bye and for all the lovely comments you left on my previous card.

We have been having some really cold temperatures here in the Northwest, my husband and I purchased four Blue Spruce trees to plant and when we got them home and unloaded we discovered the ground was frozen solid.  Really I am glad none of the neighbors were filming us otherwise I am sure we would of shown up on a You Tube video.  It really was a funny site to see, we finally gave up until a few days later when it started raining.

I only used the top part of the Manor House die and then trimmed off the sides.  As you can see if went overboard on the glitter, the silver really is pretty even though the picture does not show it very well.
