Thomas Kinkade Expressions at CHF

The new Thomas Kinkade Expressions sentiment set releases today at Cornish Heritage Farms.  Now, I don't actually have any Thomas Kinkade stamps, but I just had to get this set anyway, since it's got some great sentiments that go with lots of other stamps I own.  Here I've used the "East or West..." sentiment with the 1938 Suburban single from the General Motors line to make a fun masculine card.  The map paper is from Graphic 45, and the postage is vintage.  The photo strip die cut is from Tim's Alterations line. (BTW, these go through the Cuttlebug beautifully - I purchased the Sizzix 12" cutting base and the smaller 12" cutting platforms, and they went through just fine.)

Here's another card I made where the sentiment is the feature.
For this card I used some flourishes from the Ornamental Beauty set.  The paper is K and Co.'s Blue Awning, accented with my favorite Prima flower petal trim.  You can view the DT's artwork in the gallery HERE.

Yippee, it's Friday!  Hope you all have a great weekend.  We're gonna have some grandmother-mother-daughter time this weekend, so it should be fun.  I'm hoping it includes some crafting.... ;)

Lovely card I do like the male one, very clever love the papers too! I also bought the plated from sizzix they bent quite a bit in my cuttle bug though but then i was using the TH alphabet (maybe it's a wee bit thicker) I have ordered the ticket strip I think this will be amazing
