House Tag

When I saw what the theme was for this week at
I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do.
Does that ever happen to you?
See, I have these Penny Black House stamps and until now, haven't had the chance to use them.
But this was
It would have been wrong not to.
It's not the best picture, but it'll have to do.   
See the little sign on the left?
Well, that's wooden button a dear friend in Australia sent to me ages ago.
ALSO, waiting for the right time.
It's by Aussie Woodcraft and the instructions (?) on it say
"repeated soaking in water not recommended"
What do they do with their buttons in Australia?
The building on the heart, I made of Utee.
Not sure why I did, I just did.
It's coloured with Ranger Distress Inks.
Rock Candy and ink of the letters.
Floss on the windows.
To make it cozy.
The dots are Liquid Pearls. 
And the rest? My stash, of course.

Oh yeah, the frame is digital, by Wish Bliss Studios.
And you can click on it to make it bigger.
I have no idea why it's so small.

So thank you, 
It was meant to be.
