Birdhouse Card

Just popping in to share a card I made not long ago with some great birdhouse stamps.  I am trying to hone my skills with the watercolor pencils and I thought this stamp would work well.  I used my trusty Silhouette to cut out the tag.  LOVE that machine.  Enjoy!

Tic Tac Toe with CAS-ual Fridays

Well it has been an exciting start to the summer here at the Wood house.  With swim lessons and my older kids getting out of school there have been a lot of schedule changes.  But I am back on track and ready to play with CAS-ual Fridays this week.  This weeks theme is Tic Tac Toe and you pick which three elements to use on the card.  I chose gems, dies or punch, and flowers.  I had seen these flowers made with paper and I wanted to try it with crepe paper to give it more of a ruffled effect.  I think I might be doing a lot more of these, they are so simple.  You punch the crepe paper out with a flower punch(that's where my punch came into the card) and after you have 5 or more layers you attach them with a brad and gather the layers.  It seems no matter how I positioned my card I could not get the sentiment to show up better.  It is a soft pink that says thinking of you.  Another fun week with CAS-ual Fridays
