A Hodge Podge Mix of Cards

Hello my crafty friends, I hope that you are having a fabulous Sunday!  It is sunny, semi warm, and just plain beautiful here in PA today!  The corn is drying down, and the soybeans leaves are turning yellow-harvest will be upon us before we know it.  I have a few cards that I made, but never shared so I thought I might as well take the time to share them now.  The first card I made 2 of.  It is the house and envie from Wild Card2.  Our one son and girlfriend moved to Iowa after college graduation because that is where they found teaching jobs.  No teaching jobs here, they are letting go of teachers because of budget cuts!  So one of these went to them for a housewarming along with a gift card.  The other house card went to our son who just bought a newer house and this one will have a gift card in it too.  Wanted to get them some chairs for their deck, but missed out on those since it is late in the season.   Isn't this card cute?!

Next is a card I made for a friends birthday using Lori's Garden Imagine cart.  Love this cart!!!  So many beautiful images on this one. 

My next card is simple adorable.  I made it using a My Creative Time die and stamp set.  It is a tri fold 3x3 card.  I used Create A Critter for my little squirrel and some crinkle ribbon that I dyed with distress ink and left to "crinkle".   This stamp and die set is so cute and can be used in so many ways.  What a perfect size card to have premade to tuck in a gift, a lunchbox/brief case or even tool box.  So many placed to tuck it. I love to recycle gift bags from the stores so what better gift tag card to use on them!  So I plan on making a few of these to have on hand.

I hope that you have enjoyed this little mix of cards.  Happy Crafting everyone!
