Card Sets for Local Bazaar

I am donating items to a local Senior's Home for their bazaar which is being held in November. Here are some of the cards sets that I have already completed and I will post more as I get them done. I am packaging the cards with envelopes in sets of four in these great clear boxes from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. I absolutely love these little boxes as they are perfect to slip your cards into after completion to keep them safe, they are great for storing cards and they provide a beautiful way to present embellished cards or sets of cards.
I tried to keep the card styles simple and easy to make (especially when making so many multiples) and as inexpensively as possible to keep the sets at a reasonable cost. These first cards used a great stamp set from House Mouse. Love these little guys. I coloured them simply (no shading) with Copics and mounted on black and white cardstock bases.

I totally CASE'd this next card by Lisa Johnson at PTI.

And here is a sample of what they look like in their clear boxes.
