Less Is More - One Layer - Houses

Good morning LIMettes!
How is everyone? I have a chocolate hangover today! I got a craving last night that wouldn't go away so I ate a whole box of Thornton's Choccies! Ooops! It wasn't a huge box, thankfully! So I shall have to work super hard at the gym today!

Anyway, today at Less Is More, I'm thrilled that my best buddy Jen has been chosen to help Chrissie out while Mandi is getting her wedding business up and running...congrats hun! 

There is a one layer challenge this week, with an unusual theme...


Now, as it happens, I have just the card as I made it for my friend's brother and sis-in-law for their new house, and couldn't figure out where to blog it! 
The stamp is one of Jen's which I stamped twice. The castle was hand drawn by me! I didn't want it to look perfect as the other houses weren't. I only coloured the castle and not the houses as I wanted it to have the stand out effect. I chalked the background as it looked too 'white' I'm not sure if there is enough 'white'...
The sentiment inside says 'An Englishman's home is his castle...welcome home'

Time for work now...then the gym...then a bit of crafting with Jen!
