Summer and winter houses cards

Good morning everyone, a very grey & rainy day here today
 grrrr ! It's week 93 over at 'Less is More' and one layer card
 week once more.The theme this time is......
Houses
At first I read it as 93 houses ( it said one layer week 93 houses),
oh my ....for a brief second it went through my mind how I was
 going to get 93 houses on a card arghhh ! Anyway I got an idea
which images to use  almost immediately , so was very pleased.
I used an old 'Beccy's Place' digi of a wooden house and also a
digi  called 'Beach huts' from a  lovely friend of mine Chrissie
 ( not the LIM Chrissie). I made a summer  themed card & also
a winter themed card. I used soft chalking for the sun, sky , sea
 and sand on the summer card, then  added a few birds freehand.
For the winter card I used Promarkers on the image ( as on
 the summer image) then stamped some trees and used masks for
a snow drift look and added soft chalking for a weak sun too.
Hope you like them both.
 

New photo added as the old one didn't show the sunset
