After the Break - 3 Cards to Share

Wow -  It seems like I haven't posted in ages -  life kind of took over for a little bit there with some church projects and getting ready for hosting Thanksgiving dinner  - but here I am to share a few cards with you today!

I made this first card for the CAS challenge over on Split Coast -  we had a sketch to follow of a square in the middle of the card with a tag.     I made mine really CAS - with no layers.  I used some Papertrey Ink stamp sets (Chairished and On my Couch) that I purchased quite some time ago but have not inked up much!  Don't know why because they are SO CUTE!!  I love the oval rug stamp under the rocker.   The frame around the images is from Frame It by Waltzingmouse.  Inside I stamped a happy birthday verse.
 My second card was made for the Color Challenge on Split Coast -  I was the host this week and chose the colors of Kraft, white and Pear Pizzazz with the dessert option of using polka dots!  The sentiment is from Teeny Trees by Waltzingmouse.
My third card was made for the Teapot Tuesday Challenge -   this week we had a magical Harry Potter Hat teapot for our inspiration.

Our cards are going postal to Hunter Renz (who loves Harry Potter)  for his 12th birthday on Dec 1st.  We hope to make this first b'day without his mum (fellow stamper Katie Renz) a little bit happier with all the cards he'll receive.

Here's Hunter's address if you'd like to send along a card as well:  
Hunter Renz
PO Box 5913
