This is for Cindy's challenge....I have had the best time making this. Thank you soooooo much Cindy.
Hazy and Lazy are 2 little girls in an earlier DTGD challenge and this is where they live. I have never made a card for myself so this one is going to sit on my craft desk as a momento of the fantastic week the Dirty Girls have given us. I have thrown in a few elements from other challenges so I can remember everything.
I used a lot of dies on this one, so I will list them here as there is a bit more room.
MEMORY BOX DIES
Bicycle (a gift from Peggy)
Flowering Christmas Tree (heavily pruned to look like a creeping vine through the fence).
French Window (with acetate)
Fence (at very back on right side - hard to see)
MFT - Die-Namics
Rolled Rose - small
Rolled Rose - medium
Grass (diecut grass gift from Jennifer-mothers daughter - I love it so much I have ordered my own)
Metal die flourish at back - gift from Peggy
The card is Beates stairstep, but with 3 sets of steps. The middle set of steps is hard to see, the little children are on the second step. The very back centre step is empty.
I used liquid pearls on the bike wheel centre and randomly on a few trees and flowers.
Thank you for looking. Here is a picture of the 2 cards together.

I think you should win a prize for the MOST dies used on a project. This is such a fun scene with just SOOOOO much to look at! My first thought was look at the lovely arbor over to the side...and is that a feather coming out of the birdhouse??? You do the loveliest things with your fences! I want to come visit Hazy and Lazy's house and take a spin on thier bike, smell the roses in thier garden, sit under the shade of the wonderful trees and have a cuppa tea inside thier cozy home behind those sweet curtains. LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!!

Oh I do love Hazy and Lazy's house, Susie!! So much to look at - I do love the feather sticking out of the birdhouse!! Great use of all these dies and good to see you have made a keepsake card of the past week for yourself! I would love to have played in more of the dirty challenges had time permitted!

Well, well Suzie, you have excelled yourself! This is such an awesome scene...it's funny - I dont know quite why - but it looks like an Aussie house! Maybe because of the overgrown trees? I'm still trying to pin point it. I keep on looking at it...it's one of those cards that you MUST keep looking. I really love the colors too - the pinks and whites & creams with splashes of green really work. A really fabulous card, Suzie! And I'm so honored you are keeping this one from my challenge for a bit - it deserves to be cherished!

Well, this is one challenge that was absolutely 100% up your street, Susie.Well done you for making a card for yourself, you deserve it! I end up with some that DH won't let me give away, but they're not necessarily the ones I would choose to keep myself!! Love the feather peeking out of the birdhouse.
I'm sure you saw how much I enjoyed using the cording! I'll be less prodigal with it after this week. Thank you so much.
