This Old House

I felt like a challenge today and 2 caught my eye so i decided to merge them.

I managed to cover both this weeks ARTY GIRLZ challenge with a "NATURE" theme and the CRAZY AMIGO's challenge which was "HOUSES".
I was lucky enough that the Fabulous Dan posted a house template not so long ago which i had saved to my comp.. thank you Dan.
I used this as my base, although i feel it is more of a shack than a house now lol

...and i guess your wondering about the nature side of it... well the whole house is made entirely out of thin wood veneer, with only the window dressing being a piece of patterned paper to look like wallpaper in the house.. er i mean shack, and a panty hose blind (well i had some left over from the GutterGirlz challenge lol)
A very simple piece but quite time
consuming as the wood kept splitting
and the roof took ages to dry in between layers
but all in all i love the finished result.

Hope it's ok for both the challenges!
