Bottom Farmhouse

So, OK, who WOULDN'T want to live in a house called 'Bottom Farmhouse' ... LOVE IT! My gorgeous cousin, Kate, and her family are moving in a couple of days so I wanted to make them a 'New Home' card. I sat and pondered. SU don't have a great selection of houses, or new home stuff so I thought I'd make my own house. This is a rough template I made for the job :

Not bad, I thought, could be cute with the right colours, accessories etc. Then I remembered that Bottom Farmhouse is a very traditional English farmhouse and very symmetrical ... sooooo ... I thought I'd have a stab at making a replica of their actual house for a hoot. Here's their new home, and the pics below are the card I came up with. I am keeping my fingers crossed that Kate realises it's actually HER new house. If not, then it's still a cute New Home card, right? Hee hee.

Emma, this is lovely! And by the way....I'd live in ANY farmhouse in England...the name wouldn't bother me a bit - as long as there was room for our 2 new chickens!
Love your work! Ginger

This is lovely...and I am sure she will know right away it is her house! Any idea on how it got its name? From the Bottom family???? Or is it at the bottom of some piece of property or hill?
