Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #16 & a little house!

In a bid to get some Christmas cards made I decided that I would need to make my Inkspiration Challenge card a Christmas one. This one is a great sketch & very flexible for all kinds of cards.... I will be using this sketch again.
Here's my card:
Stamps: Winter post Ink: Baja breeze, chocolate chip, black, basic grey Card: Riding hood red, choc chip, kraft, confetti white Other: Designer label punch, riding hood red striped grosgrain, cutter kit distressing tool, clear rhinestones, nestabilities circles (non SU!)
The little house mentioned in the title is a gift I made for a lovely friend who has recently moved house - I made it almost exactly as the instructions given by Monica from Stamp with Us in their on line classes earlier this year. The 'roof' lifts off, so that the inside can be filled with goodies!
Stamps: Cheep talk, sentiment is handwritten Card: chocolate chip, so saffron, real red, brocade blue Other: So saffron ribbon, scallop edge punch, metal edged tag, real red grosgrain.
Cheerio for now!
