Sofas, Couches, Davenports...Chairs

Good Wednesday morning, my friends!
How's everyone doing?
It's kind of dreary outside my window at work today but I thinking that it will clear up soon and today will be beautiful!

I have a couple cards for you today; both using the On My Couch set from Papertrey Ink. The moment I saw this set and the amazing creations that the design team over there were coming up with, I knew I had to have it! I wanted a set that would make "comfort cards" that I could use for everyday occasions and I've used it today for a Thank You and Thinking of You. You can't see it very well from the picture but for the "thinking of you" card the sofa cushion and the pillow are both popped up with a dimensional and the same for the pillow in the card below.

The "chair-ish" card above is a CASE from one of my card heroes, Debbie Olson. You can check out her AMAZING creations here.

I'll see you back here tomorrow for a new release preview for The Greeting Farm. Yipee!!!!

Both of these are totally fab and gorgeous, yet so different from each other! You are really showing how versatile one stamp can be! I love the papers and embellies you chose for each. And your paper piecing is awesome. Definitely 2 cards to chair-ish! :D TFS!
