I'm back, Baby!

Hello crafty friends!  It's been a very long time since I've made an appearance here in blogland, and it's good to be (almost) back in the loop.  I feel like I've missed so much over the last six months but I'm ready to dip my crafting toes back in the water.  Thought I'd start with a look at what's happening at CAS-ual Fridays this week.

I needed to make a very long overdue thank you card for our good friend who is also the realtor responsible for helping us buy our first home. This card has been on my to-do list for over 2 years but it's never too late to say thanks. (I hope!)  I knew I wanted to use some of the great house images from the Silhouette Online Store to make a simple and masculine thank you card.

I used patterned papers from Simple Stories Sn@p! Color Vibe 6x6 pad in aqua, green and orange behind the negative image.

Love this wooden tag from Simon Says Stamp card kit!

My second project of the day was a housewarming card for my BFF Erica.  She and her family just bought their first home and I'm so excited for them!  It was hard to choose from all the adorable house images I found, but I chose a Home Sweet Home theme for hers.

I must admit I'm feeling a bit rusty after taking a such a long break from creating stuff, and was only about medium happy with the way these cards turned out. But I'm just going to power through and keep moving forward!  Thanks so much for looking!
