GS#69 - Happy Anniversary House

I am squeaking in just under the wire to play with the first Get Sketchy layout of 2011! Isn't it a fun sketch? This blog seems to have had a lot of really "clean" cards lately - today I was ready for a little more "fussy".
Although the stamping police would not come to the house and arrest me if I didn't use a house as the element on my card, the challenge of creating my own little casa had me intrigued.
Cutting your house base with two Nestabilities is easy-peasy (plus maybe I just wanted you to be a little jealous of my new FAB Martha Stewart punch not to mention that Basic Grey Curio paper pad!!)
The sentiment is spelled out with Cosmo Cricket clear stickers. Let me tell you that the normal tiny type stickers have a eensy bit of forgiveness with them if you want to move them a bit but the clear ones refuse to play fair! Be warned! Do you love my sparkly crystal smoke?! LOVE ZVA crystals!! Apparently, the chimney lives on the back of the house -
On another note - good news - the lizard ate two crickets today - his first since last week!
