Welcome to Friday with Flair! It's been awhile, but I love it when I have time to play along! Angela has the master list of all the 50 designers participating in the FWF this week, so take a lookie at the Unity Blog for the names/links of everyone.
Today I have a couple more Housewarming cards to share. My real estate agent asked me to make him 20 and I am chipping away at the order in between this week's Verve Release Spotlight peeks and house renovations! CAS is the name of the game with these. AND Ippity's House a Home is the perfect for all my cards.
I got the layout idea from the incomparable Julie Ebersole -queen of CAS!! The pattern paper is from Bella Blvd from my scrap folder, but most are from Man of the House line. I love Bella Blvd papers because they are great for masculine cards. I have to REMEMBER that I can't make all the cards girlie with flowers! Some have to be masculine -which is very tricky for us girlie stampers -LOL!
Here is another with different colors and papers. I like how these turned out, not too girlie, right?
Before I go, yesterday was Demo day 1 for my driveway/walkway and garage!!
I have a couple pics to share. Today they finish the demo and clean up and all next week they set the forms, lay and stamp the concrete! I am so excited! Here are the before shots:
Believe it or not, this picture doesn't show any demo. It's a close up of the condition of our driveway. The HUGE Blue Spruce tree roots have done unbelievable damage!
Here are some demo shots -yep the 3 guys tore up everything with a jack hammer! I think my neighbors HATED me cause they started at 9:15am!Verve Release party!
