"Cherish"


My first time participating in the Simon Says Stamp challenge.  The challenge is to use a song title to inspire you, and so I've altered a little wooden house I found in a thrift store and used the song "Cherish" as my inspiration.  I forgot who sang the song, but the words were "Cherish is the word I use to describe, all the feelings that I have hiding here for you inside....."  Well, I could go on, but I won't:)

Here is the opposite side which I also altered.
