Otterly Lost card and another model

Hi friends hope all is well with you today!
 I have my usual 'Less is More' card to share
 again. It's a sketch this time, (see it below
 my card).

I also have another model made by my
 talented  OH  to share with you, now it's all
finished at long last. This time he made an
'Oast House', it stands at 12"x16".

He is currently making a lovely old church
(my idea) although I have to report it looks very
 complicated! I helped with clocks and the stained
 glass windows ;) Also two smaller cottages seem
to have appeared too. He seems to be on a roll
 just now lol.
 He had three models on the go before he
 had finished painting the Oast House... oh my!!

Anyway back to my card, I just adore these
super cute otters!!! They jumped in my
basket as soon as I saw these
things do lol ;)

So come and have a quick peek at my card
and of course enjoy your weekend whatever
you have planned ;)

ps. We seem to have a bit of a 'Murmuration' 
going on at our house atm. Photo or video
soon !

Otters, CAS

Oh my goodness, between you and your hubby I'm surprised there's any talent left for the rest of us!!! His oast house is absolutely superb and looks like a pro version from a shop. Loving your card too with those sweet otters and the calm grey colour palette. So adorable! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

Love that you kept the colours monochrome; it makes your card such a beautiful and strong one!
The oasterhouses look beautiful; may that will took him a long time to build!!

Isn't it funny how crafty items just jump into our baskets....still not figured out how to stop that! :D
Your otter look so sweet, I love how you've placed them off the edge of your circular mat, and gorgeous soft tones too.
And, wow, that house is amazing, well done to both of you!
Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x

I'm always blown away when you post one of hubby's amazing models, Vee! (I've gotten used to being blown away by your card art, lol!) It must take incredible dexterity and patience to do this sort of thing, but what a fabulous feeling of success he must have when he is finished! And you, you succumbed to the otters, I see. They really are so adorable and they work perfectly for the LIM sketch! Enjoy the weekend! Hugs, Dee
