Oh Little *TOWN* of Bethlehem

Did you guess this week's theme from the title?  We're creating cards that feature BUILDINGS ... it could be a snow-covered house, a country church, or even a  bit city skyline.

We can't wait to see what buildings you incorporate into your holiday card designs.

Here is what we made:

Stephanie says, "I featured an iconic building (at least in Iowa) ... the house from Grant Wood's American Gothic (his work is currently being featured at the largest Grant Wood show at the Whitney Museum of Art) with a snowy twist of Snow People from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I paired them with a vintage Hero Arts sentiment because those just seemed like the right words for those faces."

Lauren says, "I used this Impression Obsession Small Cabin Die in a class at Paper Anthology last fall, and I've been using it ever since. It's got A LOT of tiny pieces... but then the dies with the most detail are the ones that look the most interesting on a card, don't you think? This time I've made a little wintery landscape on a label-shape to hold my sweet, snow-covered cabin, then mounted the whole thing on a neutral background of paper and washi tape. Easy, peasy!

Link up here by 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, May 16th. Keyword for galleries and Flickr is JB:18:10.

Hope I haven't strayed too far off the path with this one. LOL Regardless, love the inspiration cards and am happy to be playing along. :)

I'm loving your samples JB's but I'm afraid I'm running out of time to add to the gallery this time. Still love the challenge though.
