A house, a cupcake and a frog Oh My!

Here are some of those paper projects you've been waiting for! I have three cards to share. A house for our friend Ashley. A cupcake for another friend's niece and a frog for our friend Connie.

The house...is for our friend Ashley and her family.  They just bought a new house. The Lady at the post office wished I hadn't sealed the envelope...she wanted to see the house.
 The card and the envelope were cut using the Wild Card Cartridge. The envelope was cut at 7 3/4 and the card was cut at 7 1/2.
I hand cut the pots for the trees. There are trees on the cartridge for this purpose but I wanted to stamp my trees. I used the tree from the Stampin' Up "Loads of Love" set. I hand wrote "Welcome Home" on the inside of the door.


Congratulations on the new house Ashley and family! <3


A cupcake...birthday card for another friend's niece.
The cupcake was also cut from the Wild Card Cartridge. I just cut the pieces out, I didn't cut the actual card out. The 8 was cut out with the Plantin Schoolbook cart. The papers were in the 'scrap drawer'. I think I need  to make a BUNCH of cards out of the scrap drawer (s). I hope she likes it!


A frog...for our friend Connie's birthday!

The frog was cut with the Create A Critter Cartridge. (I am sorry to say I didn't write down the size of the cut).
I used one of my Sizzix folders to emboss her lily pad with Happy Birthday!
I used Stickles on the crown! The papers the frog, the lily pad and the crown were cut from were in the scrap drawer. I combined parts of two different stamps from the Stampin' Up Turtle & Co. set. The background piece is from the DCWV Lemon Flower matstack.
























Happy Birthday C!!!!! <3

I am linking the frog up to Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. The challenge was to add the color yellow to your project!

I am linking the house up to Cricut Cardz Challenge. The challenge was to use the card feature on any cartridge.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment.  Enjoy this holiday weekend!
