Friends with Flair, home style

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!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!  I hope to see you tonight at the Verve Release party!

  1. Love your welcome cards. So great! And at least the demo guys waited until after 9 to start. We have some very loud neighbors that start well before 6!

Are you getting rid of the blue spruce so it doesn't ruin it? Can't wait for the updates :)

  13. Great CAS "Welcome Home" cards - love the colors! I seriously have had so many purposes for those cards run through my mind since I saw the Ippity Release (friends moving to a new house, friends buying a house, friend returning home after extended time away) -- I think this is a sign. Hmm...

    Cool to see the pics of the driveway in progress -- I'm sure it will be an amazing change.
