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

Absolutely fabulous cards Viv, I'm glad it wasn't 93 houses, it would have had to be a pretty big card.
These are gorgeous.
Thanks so much
