Cottage Living cards

It was a smoke filled day with air quality warnings so what better thing to do than play in my scraproom - obviously before my grand daughter arrived :)

I used the Cottage Living collection by Pebbles.  Such a pretty collection.



First up I used one of my favorite background dies - the Mini Chicken Wire (must be the country girl in me ;)  )

The sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Ink and of course a Silhouette cut.  The flowers on top have been fussy cut from pattern paper and mounted with foam squares

I was inspired by this week's CAS(E) this sketch:

Next up I had fun using up some scraps on this card and breaking in my new die from Altnew.  Once again the sentiment stamp is PTI.

See I did use scraps... I even used the edge of the papers hence the hole in the strip :)  

I was inspired by this sketch over at Let's Capture Our Memories.

While I am very sorry for the reason you had to stay indoors, the result is fabulous. You've made some super pretty cards here. The smoke you spoke of has traveled down far enough and combined with smoke from other fires to make our air quality yesterday quite poor as well. We were expecting rain, so at first I didn't think too much about it, but as the day went on, I could tell it was more than a brewing storm. I hope they are able to get those fires out soon! For everyone's sake!
