Home Sweet Home

Good evening! Thought I would share with you all a little project I have finally made today as part of my MIL's Christmas present. I have used the cute Little Fairy and Mushroom House from Julia Spiri for this one, but I do apologise to Julia for the lateness of it. I was supposed to do it a couple of weeks ago but my printer died on me so couldn't print anything, then I came down with a horrible viral infection, then it was the craziness that is the end of term at school, so finally I coloured it all up last night and put it together this morning.

Still took me ages to do as I have developed tennis elbow in my writing hand, so everything takes twice, three times as long as normal as my arm aches so much. Not a lot I can do for it other than the massages I had to do when I had it in my left arm! And just before Christmas too! Not good :(

Anyway after all my moans and groans, here's my picture frame! The sentiment was too big to go inside the frame and as my printer still isn't fixed and I am on holiday from school, I cannot print another one and have no stamps that say Home Sweet Home, so stuck it on the outside instead. I do love how this one came out and hope my MIL likes it!
