New House Congrats

Well it isn't too much longer until the house we're building is ready! We actually get possession at the end of the month. This card is for one of Grant's coworkers who is actually building a house on the same street as us and gets possession of her place just a couple weeks into November. I figured I better make it now because I'm not sure how quickly I'll get to unpacking all of my craft supplies!
I've been lacking any creativity at making cards so I CASEd this card and just changed the colours and design slightly to suit my style a little more! The houses do not look as crooked in real life as they do in the photo! As with most of my cards, the main image panel is raised on dimensionals!

Dad's 50th Birthday

Yesterday was my Dad's 50th birthday! Unfortunately, I couldn't be there to share the day with him but I hope he had a wonderful day. Here's the card I made to go along with the gift we got for him.
It's a pretty simple card but I find that is the only way I can make masculine looking cards! Although, I can't take credit for the inspiration for this card - it's a CASE of the card here. For the center of the build-a-brad I printed out the "50" from the printer and made it chocolate chip colour to match using Marni's RGB values. For the leaf, I used the rock and roll technique to get the different colour along the edges.

Stamps: SU Paradise, Occasional Quotes (hostess)
Ink: SU garden green, wild wasabi, chocolate chip
Paper: SU crumb cake, chocolate chip, very vanilla, whisper white, woodland walk dp
Brad: SU pewter build-a-brad
Punch: SU 1/2" circle punch
