Happy Retirement Table Centerpiece..


Retirement can be a joyous occasion and as soon as I saw this incredibly relaxing image, Feet Up and a Cuppa, from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps, I knew I had to place him in the perfect relaxing environment...his cozy cottage in his cozy chair.  So, here's the little house that Lisa built.
You'll notice there is no furniture inside the house, except for the relaxing gent, but I decided instead of furniture to make this a fun little retirement fund centerpiece for someones retirement party!
Here's what it looks like now...
So how fun is that? Not only do the Dr.'s images bring out the most hilarious and creative ideas for a card, but they are SUPER fun to create little environments for. Very versatile creations and you'll love coloring them up. So head on over to Dr. Digi's House of Stamps and start having fun now!!

Thanks so much for your visit and I hope you've enjoyed this project.
Hugs n' Happy Building...
Lisa xx

What an absolute joy of a creation! As someone who grew up surrounded by my mother's dollshouse collection (and is about to go and spend two months helping her prepare it to open as a museum in the Czech Republic), I'm a complete sucker for tiny houses and towns... and this is absolutely adorable, Lisa! I love how you've done the roof, it's got a real fairy tale look...

TALENT TALENT TALENT oozing out of your fingers and of course it has to come from your brilliant imagination. Always a joy to open up your daily emails. Don't know where you find the time to do so much with every one you make. Do you ever sleep or do you have more than 24 hours in your day? LOVE IT Lisa.

Once again, your creativity couldn't be contained to one surface! This is so cute and I love the cozy little house he is holed up in as he drinks his tea! As far as the saving for retirement, I think you will need to add a north, south, east, and west wing to hold all of the money I will need to retire! Especially with my expensive crafting habit!!
