Practicing One Layer Creativity

Hello everyone.  Right now I'm at my mom's visiting for the weekend but I thought I would share with you a few one-layer cards I made for the current CAS-tastic challenge.  And yes I used Practicing Creativity stamps again.  Hope your not sick of them...I'm that I have all my big bulky block stamps packed away, my PCD stamps are getting a lot of use.  The only stamps I need but not necessarily the only stamps I want :)

My first card is just a simple celebration card for any occasion really, using Look Up and For the Love of Dots.  The next cards I used orange ink on orange paper with the Dandy sunrays and the Verve Plain Jane I  bought specifically to go with those rays.   These cards aren't anything amazing but it was fun to play with just stamps.

Now for some exciting news at least for my family.  We've had an offer on our house and will be signing the paper today and hopefully everything will go smoothly and the subjects will be removed by the end of the next week.  Now it's just another waiting game.  I hope that I never have to sell our home again.  The waiting game is just too much for my nerves to bare.

More exciting news for me was my random win at Off the Wall for this card.  I can't wait to get my package of brads. I have been very blessed this week haven't I?  Hope you week is blessed as well.
