Thanks for Your Hospitality

The web site for the Inspiration Challenge on Split Coast today was Oliebollen - I was inspired by these fun Euro Play Cases

I used the Home Made Template from PTI for my cute house as well as the Home Made stamp set for the windows and doors. The colors are those of my BIL's house as I will be giving this to them as a thank you for having us over for Thanksgiving this year.

The house is about 4.5 x 3.5 x 5.5 and the roof comes off so you can put cookies, candies, candles or any treat inside. I included home made spiced nuts in mine!

Here's a view of the side and back of the house. I put this bicycle here because SIL Carol has her childhood bike (that looks very similar to this stamped one) on her front porch decorated with flowers in it's basket.

I made the Thanksgiving 2009 label with my label maker to remind them of when they received it - and below you can see the other side of the house with it's windows.

It's good to be back to stamping after a few days off for the holidays! I'm also glad all the "eating till you're completely stuffed" is over with!

I appreciate your stopping by today!

Saw this on SCS Julia, and had to stop by and take a peek at this fine little house. Very well done, I love the grey and the scoring do just so! I love it and thank you so much for sharing the tip!

I know your BIL and familly will just get a kick out of this now!

Kindly, Peggy
