Looking forward to another day with the temperature rising to over 100...NOT! It will definitely be a good day to stay indoors and work on something crafty.
This is another Peony Cottage from SVG Cuts. They are so much fun to make and so versatile. I did this on in black and white prints from the Bella Armoire stack by DCWV. The little flowers and vines, I used a little color on. I made this house for a cousin who recently got married.
