A hobbit house card (aka – finding out I can still draw a bit.)

I like a challenge when it comes to cardmaking. People are always saying things like “can you make a card with a spaceship – spinning wheel – labrador in pyjamas motif?” (Not that combination exactly, but I like to say I’ll try anything!)

So, my friend Claire (she has a lovely blog here – check it out!) asked me to make a card for her husband. With a hobbit style house.

I could not find a suitable digi stamp anywhere on t’internet.  “How hard can this be?” I thought. “I have a GCSE in Art. I’ll draw one.”

And I was thinking, perhaps other people would like to have a hobbit house image to colour, so here my image. I use lots of freebies so it’s about time I gave something back!

I’d love to see any cards you make using it so, please, do let me know if you do!
