Anything Goes #48 - Inspired by TV

Just a quickie, just back from sunny Reading tonight. 5 hour drive home, I am pooped! My stupid 3G card was not working last night so I couldn't post and catch up on blogs as I planned to so this post is late, sorry!
It's a new challenge over at Anything Goes. This time the theme is 'Inspired by TV'. This is actually easier then it sounds! My project is inspired by 'Escape to the Country'. I just love these kind of programmes, I am so sad - anything housey or antiques I am there!

I decorated a lovely house key holder from Craft Den. It's not going to be used for keys, of course, ribbons are top choice at the moment! I used Prime Madelaine papers again, LOVE them. For the roofs I used copper craft metal, stamped with the little circle design from the Claudia Helmuth housey/foam stamps set. I then traced around the circles with a small embossing tool, turned the metal over and then embossed from the other side with a large embossing tool, then lightly sanded them down to give the burnished look and swept over with brown stazon. The door numbers are made from Tim Lost and Found papers and fragments. The background is willow dabber paint and gold inka gold.

Everything from Craft Den of course!
Come on in and join the fun!!
