"A Happy Home" Card and Housewarming Gift...

My friend Janice and her hubby Dane recently built/moved into a new home, so I made these tile coasters for them as a house warming gift. (Sorry for the glare on one of the tiles!) I used brown StazOn ink, the swirl stamp from the Felicity stamp set and the letter "R" from the CTMH Rustic Letters stamp set to create these monogrammed coasters for them. I tied them up with a pretty teal blue satin ribbon and they made a really cute and practical gift! (Janice said that they match her decor perfectly - yeah!!)

Here's the cute house-warming card that I made for them too...the sentiment on the inside of the card says "is filled with love and laughter". It's hard to tell from the photo, but the word home is attached with 3-D dots with a curve in the middle to give it a banner effect:

I also made a set of tile coasters for my friend Gina, who bought new furniture last week while we were on spring break. I figured that she should have new coasters to go with her new furniture! Once again I used brown StazOn ink as well as the swirl from the CTMH Felicity stamp set. (I've gotten a lot of mileage out of that swirl stamp, haven't I??) I also used the little bird from that stamp set as well as the "Seize the Day" phrase from the CTMH "Something Splendid" stamp set. (Again - sorry for the glare on one of these tiles, too!)

Thanks for looking! Have a WONDERFUL week!!
