Double D - Building

 Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
I'm happy to say I am hosting today's challenge and our theme is:

and here's an inspiration board I've created to help get you started . . .

 For today's card, I dug deep into my die collection and came up with this Impression Obsession 'Brick House' die for my focus image.  I think my 'house' looks more like an old time school house but maybe it's the 'fencing' in the background that makes me think that.

 Brick House

 Anyways, I first created my background by inking the upper 2/3 of my card with TH broken china distress oxide ink and the lower 1/3 with TH rustic wilderness distress oxide ink.  I used a few Stampscapes stamps to create the fencing, the cloudy sky and the birds.  The brick walkway was hand drawn and colored with Tombow markers.  My sentiment die is by  Yvonne Creations  - 'Home Sweet Home'.


 I hope you've found inspiration from today's creation!  
The prize that you'll be playing for this time around is:

 Remember, it's a random draw for the winner so it could be YOU!!

Hope to see you at Double D! 

  As always . . .


  1. Your card is pretty amazing my friend! Your die collection must be out of this world as you always seem to have the perfect die for any occasion!

  2. Great card! I get a warm and fuzzy feeling looking at this little house. Fantastic background scene too. Very inviting!

  3. This was a fun challenge and my hat off to you for picking something different. I had a bit of a challenge to make my card, but now that I see your creation and some of the other's, it could have been easier. I love your scene and I think it looks like a old school house too.

  4. I love your cloudy sky and the scene you created. Great design.

  5. You created a great scene, love that big house die and your lovely sentiment die too!

  6. Such a sweet card, I love the background. Great take on the challenge, my friend.

  7. What a darling card this is Darlene! A perfectly inked background and I love how the sky turned out. Beautifully done!

  8. Fabulous job on the background, love the brick walk up to the house, so cute!

  9. What a fun challenge! I love your little house on the prairie with the barbed wire fence and wide open sky in the background. I guess there is sort of a schoolhouse look to it now that you mentioned it, but also because the die set is shown in red brick. Anywho, it looks awesome!

  10. Fabulously fun house, it does remind of the schoolhouses I see when driving to Shipshewanna, Indiana, I think it is the fence as they seem to have them up around their schools! Great scene you have created!

  11. Very pretty, something anyone would love to receive Darlene. Such a darling design.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me some love!
