Home sweet Quirky home - a house at last!

 Finally a little house from the 3d Houses set from The Cutting Cafe. I am getting on better with the Zing than I ever did with the eCraft - hooray, time to celebrate perhaps! I know
 there is a lot to learn yet. The day it wouldn't cut the whole image out - the blade needed setting and tightening, must have worked loose but it took me ages to realise what the problem was.

I used the small house with fixed roof and not opening, I think the opening ones will be lovely little gift boxes and will make some of them I think.

I added some patterned paper cutting with the files in the set, and added mosaics for the front path with glitter grouting, and tiny Prima blooms and dots of Liquid Pearls to the garden. I thought lace round the box base would look nice this time.
Regina - the box base would be great as a drawer so it could hold a gift or additional gift or be for storage.
 Side view.
Back of my house, see the "gravel" path made with microbeads?
I know the ric rac is a bit wrong here, looks much worse now I see the photo.
I would have cut out some trees but while I was squeezing the Cosmic Shimmer glue bottle my thumb suddenly started to bleed profusely from a cut I hadn't really noticed, it is all over the bottle and the blooms bottle, luckily I noticed before I bled all over the house!

This would be a great little gift to give someone moving into their new home.
