A Lovely Little Hobbit Home...

Coffee of the Day - Sweet Potato (buttery caramel flavor with a touch of vanilla)

Well yesterday I hinted about a special guest we have coming to stay this holiday weekend and said that I would tell all today..... The card I am sharing was made for her. :)

yes, it's a her. I know some of you thought that one of my sons might be coming home, but no, that is not the case. Mick is still happy as a clam oh, so far away, but studying what he absolutely loves. Ryan is in Indiana getting ready for classes to begin next week....

but Tyler has a lovely guest coming to visit. :) they met while working at Camp this summer and share a love of LOTR, amongst other things. even though she lives in PA, she goes to school about 2 hours away from us (about 1 hour from Tyler's school).

so I made this card for him to give to her as Camp came to an end. I was so happy when he said that she loved it. :) the first thing she said was, "My very own Hobbit House!"

the Hobbit House is by Lavinia Stamps. I stamped it 3 times, cutting out smaller portions to layer for added dimension. the top layer - the door alone - was sprayed with walnut gold glimmer mist and touched up with a grey souffle pen. a homemade enamel dot was added for the door knob.

digital papers are by Far Far Hill, flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts, crochet trim is from stash, brown satin ribbon is May Arts, floral flair button is Basic Grey, and buttons are vintage. washi tape at top is Tim Holtz and was lightly inked prior to adhering. oh yes, the banner was cut with a SU! die.

I hope all of you have a fabulous weekend!
