CASology Challenge #243 - House

Hi there blog friends! I hope you have all had a fun weekend :)
I'm sliding in at the last minute to play along with CASology for the cue card 'House'. 


Since I couldn't decide between 2 cards, I'm submitting both...First up ~


For my first card, I used PTI Polka Dot Parade #10 and the Linen/Canvas Impression Plate. I also used MFT stitched scalloped circle frames and cloud stencil. Some Glossy Accents on the windows, and this card was completed.

For my 2nd card, I wanted to use these cute little MFT birdhouses ~


I stenciled clouds again for the background, inked grout gray cardstock with cement gray for the wood plank background, and the textured side of Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock for the posts. The sentiment is from PTI Polka Dot Parade #10.

I would also like to enter my 2nd card for this week's Muse Challenge. Kim Heggins is our Muse and she has created this really cute card for us:



And, that's it for me! Thanks so much for stopping by...Have a great week!

These are both fantastic, and I'm so glad you were able to make the deadline for both. Your birdhouses, with the softly sponged background and sweet little birds has stolen my heart. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

Your houses are lovely Barb, I especially like the Glossy Accents on the window of the first card and those birdhouses are so sweet for Muse. Hope you are doing well, I haven't been out and about in blogland much lately. :(
