New neighbors

Hello crafty friends! I wish all of you a wonderful Friday.
It's 'play day' for me, it's my day off because I have to work the weekend. :)
Two families moved to our neighborhood this past week. One of them is our next door neighbor, I haven't met them yet, so I decided to welcome them with cards and some house plants.
For one of the cards I used the sketch at Retro Sketches # 87

The red panel is embossed with the "Acanthus" EF by Cutlebug, for the trees I used 'Lil' inkers design' die and I used Kelly Purkey's alphabet stickers to write Welcome, as I don't have a stamp for that word. The house is a wood veneer piece by Studio Calico. I like how it turned out.

For the other card I used the sketch at "Seize the sketch" # 7 (I know I can't pass a good sketch! LOL).

This one was very easy to put together, the papers are Lawn Fawn and came in the SSS October Card Kit. Another piece of wood veneer by Studio Calico and Letter stickers by Recollections. I do hope the recipients like them.
I'm also linking these two to Simon Says Stamps challenge Wednesday,  and Simon Says Stamps challenge Monday, is "Everything goes" week.
Thanks for visiting! Have a blessed day.

  11. Love these. The little houses are super. Did you paint them?

  12. Thanks Ang! Yes, I used Sharpie red markers to color the roof and green for the borders, Behind it I put yellow paper, to 'illuminate' the windows and door.
