Houses for Friends

I made these two festive houses for my friends Bill and Sandy at work. Bill's real house is white with black trim so this one is for him.
And Sandy's house is white with blue trim - so this one is for her!
Inside the houses I packaged two home made Pecan Rum Bundt cakes (Yumm!!) I also gave them a bag of Sugar Spice Nuts .
I placed everything in these little baskets that I got at the Christmas Tree Shop last year. The star on the bag is from the Seasons of Love set by Waltzingmouse.
Doesn't this make a pretty package!? I just love making these cute little houses - they can be as fancy or as simple as you want to make them.

For my friends of the Christian faith - I wish you all a most blessed Christmas Eve and Day as we celebrate Our Lord Jesus' birth.

Oh, Julia, those houses are just beautiful! I love the way the windows almost glow with light. And how the shutters are realistic, folding in a little. What great, personal gifts for your friends. Christmas blessings to you and yours as you celebrate Christ's birth!

Beautiful houses! I wouldn't care a peep if they were completely empty!! I'd be THRILLED. I'm sure the "non-stampers" might not agree, and your treats inside will be very much enjoyed as well!!
