Hello Monday and hello sweet visitors. Time for our BBTB2 challenge of the week. This was without a doubt one of the most difficult challenges I've done. Susan is our hostess and she selected one of the Haunted Houses from the Happy Hauntings cart. I don't have that cartridge but I found some 3D houses on Winter Woodland. Oh wow, said I, and I tackled the first one. Flop. Threw it away. Tackled 2 more and they were bigger disappointments so I almost just gave up. Dedication is the key to creating one of these 3D houses, and of course dexterity. I hate to cop out but I have arthritis in both hands and fingers and those tiny little score requirements for windows and shutters and doors just were a big challenge. But generally I am like a Junk Yard Dog on a big quest and I decided not to give up and keep on scoring, folding, gluing and hoping for some sort of decent end to it all. And this is it...! It's simple, and after I had taken the photographs (about 5 attempts just for that) I thought I should have added a witch or bat to the moon, and I should have added a darker sky, some lurking dark clouds........life is full of shoulda shoulda stuff and I just left it as is. I have seen some of the absolutely fantastic designs from the gals on this house and mine needs to be in the far back maybe as a haunted garage or something. (grin).... Anyway, thanks for taking a peek. I so appreciate your visit. I hope you have stopped by via the BBTB2 site here.
