A house, some angels, and a mishap

Good morning everyone. This will be a short(ish) post which I will update later today with the items used. It's Tuesday, so that means it is Creative Card Crew Challenge day. The fab Paula has chosen the theme this week and she's chosen
All That Sparkles!
So, bling it on! Let's see those glittery and sparkly projects I usually go way over the top with glitter, so I tried really hard to contain myself. My first project was this little Doodlebug Design house. I only used glitter on the roof and chimney and there are some gems in the tiny heart decorations.

I enjoyed making the house, but as I brought it downstairs to photograph it I dropped it! You know that slow motion "oooooooooh noooooo" moment? It lasted a lifetime as I stared in horror from the landing as the house hit every single stair in my home on the way down! The chimney fell off and it definitely suffered a little bit of bruising. So please forgive its slightly battered appearance.

Luckily I'd also made this little box with a sweet little angel on the outside.......

..... and a blushing one with her slipped halo on the inside (she must have scoffed all the chocolates!)

We're sponsored today by the Crafty Pad.
Please pop over to the challenge to see all the wonderful things my fellow teamies have made.
Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx

Hi Sharon,
Well, considering it hit every stair is credit to how you made it - if you hadn't said anything I am 100% certain tht no-one would have noticed you had dropped it. Well done, it's lovely. I also love the little box - what an adorable couple of images - you didn't say where you got them from though. Did you have a template for the box??

Your gorgeous house may have hit every step Sharon but can you think of my poor chin which has just dropped on the floor after viewing your stunning creations. Ooh what little girl wouldn´t love this house and can you please fill that wonderful box back up with chocolates and stop blaming that beautiful wee angel for eating all the choccies - evidence is on "your" chin sweetie.

Oh my goodness, these are gorgeous creations Sharon. I imagine your heart must have almost stopped when you dropped that lovely house. If people only knew half the things that happen with our creations when they are in the making. I always have some flub or another that I need to cover up - LOL!! I'm so happy your house wasn't destroyed!

I'm so excited to have the opportunity to work with you on the CCC over the next few months!
