Some ultra-CAS cards

Hello!

Now we move to my ultra-CAS cards I made today.

First is a birthday card that I made for one of my daughter's young friends (a boy, so no sparkles or flowers allowed). The simplicity of this card delights me... am I allowed to say that about my own card? ;-)
For colour inspiration I turned to the Dynamic Duos colour choice for this week. I didn't have Tangerine Tango, so I used Pumpkin Pie. The stamps are Hero Arts - Bicycle and Say It All.
And I just realised that I have fit into the theme over at A Blog Named Hero this week as well, yay!

The other card I made was more experimenting with PTI Teach & Inspire. I'm thinking this might do for one of my littlest girl's kindy teachers at the end of the year. They're doing marvellous work with my little acorn. :-)
I used Early Espresso, More Mustard, and Really Rust on a Vintage Cream card base.

Inspiration came from CAS-ology #14 theme - LEAF.
Thanks for dropping by!
