A HOUSEWARMING AND A WISH

I had a crazy busy weekend but I managed to finish a couple cards I have been working on for forevah! I usually don't start a card and work on it till it is done. I start one thing then switch to something else then move on to another project. I often have 3 or 4 different things going at once, which works well with my scrambled brain.



This first is the ever adorable AVA again, I can think of a hundred projects to use her with and this one will be for my niece who has a b-day coming up. The crown was cut from my Storybook cricut cart at 5.5 inches. Ava is popped up on an oval scallop nestability die. The sentiment is from a new set called ANYA SAYS from THE GREETING FARM. It is a great bunch of sayings good for all different purposed but they coordinate perfectly with a whole boatload of TGF images. So cool!

The next uses the MY HOUSE set from TGF.



I also made this for the "Cutting outside the box challenge" at SCS. I like the layout of this one but the house came out a bit too bright for my taste. I just couldn't find a shade that matched the green in the paper.
The roof was cut out using the SCS technique and both it and the stairs/shrub were cut out and popped up on top.



Thanks for stopping by, have a super week!

WOW! That crown card is amazing! Your little niece is a lucky girl. I think the house card looks cute the way it is. It kind of makes the house stand out a little more and give a bit of a glow. Have you tried mixing copic colors? Sometimes I don't have just the right shade of blue and I'll see what green or whatever tone I need to mix with it to get the color closer to what I need it to be.
