I received my Village Manor die about 2 days ago. I have been diligently working on it since then. I've got it almost done to complete the halloween village I am calling Holtzville in honor of Tim Holtz who designed all these dies for Sizzix.
Here is a brief preview of the Manor as it exists now. Probably I will finish it tonight or tomorrow. I have to work at a real job sometimes I am afraid. In the meantime, I am really happy with how the house is looking. I need to make the fence, color the back of the tombstones, make a tree of some sort and decide how to do the chimneys.
