It's a Card Making Kinda Day!

I've always loved little houses. I love them in mixed media especially, but on my last trip I picked up a Lawn Fawn stamp set and some diecuts. I decided to try something a little more conservative.

I wonder if I could do something a little different with this set. In any case, it's nice to have some plain cards in your arsenal. This one is great for  someone who is moving or has bought a house.

As I mentioned on the last post, my brother in law is having a birthday soon. I played around with some embossing folders and came up with this card. He's a bonafide lifetime car nut. There's really nothing else I could have made for him.

I also made another card with my take out coffee cup. This one will probably go on Etsy. It's similar to the last one but I embellished it a bit differently. Love the addition of the clock!

I have more cards to show but I'll post them later. 

Have a great week! 


  1. Fabulous cards Carmen - I love the textural car one - that is magnificent!
