Happy Monday, everyone! I've got a couple rustic-themed birthday cards for you today! My birthday card stash is pretty slim, and these are actually going out in the mail today, so I need to get busy! My first card uses the CAS Colours and Sketches sketch:
and it is for a horse-loving friend of mine! The papers come from a line from Authentique called Frontier; I stamped a horse from PTI's On The Farm and embellished it with some punched stars:
I added some Candy Dot "brads":
I used the same paper as the stars for my sentiment, and die-cut it with a stitched tag from Pretty Pink Posh:
The next one uses the sketch from TGIF:
Same line of papers, but this time I used an image from SU's Countryside, stamped in Early Espresso on Crumb Cake and colored with blends; I stamped the Crumb Cake card base with the woodgrain image from Gallery Grunge:
I just love that little bird!
The sentiment is from a past Paper Pumpkin kit:
And again, I stamped the inside with Country Road:
It was fun to stamp with warm country colors and images...I am getting itchy to stamp some pumpkins, so be on the watch for them!!
Speaking of itching, at church yesterday, Cassidy sat with our new preacher's family; they have a three-year-old little girl and Cassidy was just beside herself trying to be a babysitter to her:
Blessedly, the preacher's wife was very gracious and gently "helped" Cassidy be a little less motherly! All was well! Thanks for popping in today...enjoy it and be blessed!
