Bright happy cards!

I just love the card sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You this week, and I thought it would be perfect for a bright, happy card to celebrate our friends buying their first home! This paper comes from Making Memories -- it is part of a pack with several coordinating papers, which I love! It makes paper crafting so much easier when stuff is made to go together. :)



I created this housewarming card using the Cricut Zooballoo cartridge, and I stretched the house in Design Studio so that it worked with the sketch -- so cute! The flower and felt heart are from Fancy Pants.

But having coordinating papers doesn't mean you automatically love everything! I started out to make the housewarming card but I didn't like the stripey paper for that one at all. So after I finished the housewarming card I used these pieces to make some fun birthday cards!



I used the Cricut Celebrations cartridge for this one, along with some Studio G stamps for the sentiment and stickles for the hat. Fun stuff!
