CHNC challenge 41: house or home

It's time for another challenge on my CHNC blog:

Challenge 41

This week I would like you to make a card that includes a picture of a house or home - it can be the outside or inside, it's up to you. The main reason for these challenges is to help you to gradually build up a stock of Christmas cards, so there is a bit of flexibility with the challenge theme for you to interpret as you wish.

I've made five cards for this (I made them the other day so that they could be sold today for Tearfund). The snowflake background cards were free with a magazine some time ago. The houses scenes are from a set of Cute Squares 'snowy town' from Lili of the valley, so I'm entering this into Lili of the valley 115: let it snow.

The little tags were among some I bought a few years ago at Lakeland.

I'm entering these into the following challenges:

Fab's big Christmas October: something shiny and/or snowflakes
Ribbon girl: jingle all the way to Christmas
Craft your passion 78: anything goes + ribbon
Ribbon carousel 23: anything goes
One stop crafts 152: anything goes
