Homemade Christmas House

I got it done!!! YAY! I was suppose to spend the day preparing for our vacation but I am obsessed with this little house, LOL. Its done now. I used PTI's Homemade and Home for the Holidays. The house is from a template by Lauren Meader sold through PTI.All the little Christmas elements are from PTI's Home for the Holidays. They were originally meant to coordinate with Boards and Beams. The house base is lemon tart. All the elements are stamped on cream, colored with with copics and then applied to the base. The roof is pure poppy.
I took the time to shade the roof tiles this time. It took forever! Not sure I would do it again. LOL
I masked the little holly swags and then colored them with copic markers. The glow in the windows are copic marker and blender pen.
What do ya think? I hope you all have a fab Thanksgiving! I will see ya in a week!

Michele, you really outdid yourself! This is great! I realize that the shading of the tiles took a long time but to be 100% honest with you, that's the most admirable thing about it! Perhaps it's a "guy" thing! LOL! It adds such realism! And I love the Christmas tree revealed! :) You SHOULD be proud!
