Homemade for co-worker

One of my co-workers just loved the little houses made with Lauren Meader and Nichole Heady's Home Made products from PTI.  That is all it took for me to decide what her Christmas gift would be!  This is a hard year for her as her mother, withwhom she was very close, died at this time last year.  This has been a rough year for all of us in the lab and hers was compounded by her mother's death.

I sure hope this will bring a needed smile.  Just in case, I also filled it up with Reese Mini Peanut Butter cups wrapped in holiday colors.  Hey, chocolate works.

Here is the front:


And here is the back:



All card stock is from PTI and the pattern paper is from my stash (I never keep track of PP, I have too much).  Velvet ribbon is from Joanns and glitter domes from Paperwishes.com.  The leaves for the wreath and under the windows is from the Martha Stewart punch that is getting quite a work out lately.

Well, off to finish up another house... yes, I am addicted to making these.  I can complete one in less than 2 hours once I have made up my mind what colors I'm using!  The color decisions take the longest.

Everyone, have a Happiest of Holidays and a safe and healthy New Year.
