I got my Palace built by a place called wright sheds in Essex http://www.wrightsheds.co.uk/ they make to order, so made to my size spec and where I wanted the windows ect. At the time I think I was happy with my order. Since my palace is now 7 years old there are a couple of things I would change. I would have gone a little bit bigger, its 8ft x 10 ft, I maybe would have gone 10 x 10 and I would have gone for nicer side windows but I was trying to cut down the money and the side windows didnt seem that important but they are not a lovely as my gorgeion windows and door at the front. I maybe even might have gone for a stable door, that way getting some air in but not having it wide open. When I ordered my shed I went with these people as they would line it for me so it was insulated.

For the next one I used CHILLY - this cool penguin.
Chilly loves living in the snow and loves nothing more but to make "Snow Penguins" (yes look closely you can see I have used the base of the penguin to make the snowman)
Chilly thought that this penguin snow dude would look nice in a red scarf and so lent him his, after all Chilly is used the the cold weather :)
" Hoppy, Poppy & Chilly - any theme, any style, any type of project (pop-up, or flat, or 3D or party favor or layout or . . . ?) using the character/animal dies."
SO here is the first of my cards and I will start with HOPPY - Hoppy the most adorable and fun frog and I am sure the DT have some cracking cards for you.

I made this card for my son to give to an old school friend this weekend. I hope she likes it.
I used the Karen Burniston Lorna label die for the main card base and the Debi Potter Sizzix owl die for the main decoration.
Kids are on school holiday for a few more weeks. We went to ikea today with my mum and also to visit my grandad. I had the day of work with them. ☺

Today was the first time in weeks to play and I made this Owl frame for my hallway. I basically copied the idea from Sizzix and used the Lori Whitlock Owl Box die.
You can get it from Crafts U Love http://www.craftsulove.co.uk/sizzix_debi.htm
