Just Playin' Around

Hello!  Happy Sunday evening.  So I decided between loads of laundry and cleaning out the front garden of old mulch and molding leaves, I'd play along with some challenges.  I made a Clean and Simple card to send to my friend Ana.

Here's what a I created... yes my card is white, not cream like it looks in the photo. It's night time and I don't have the best lighting.  But still - the card looks great.  And Ana won't judge it harshly.


I think it's bright and cheery and it says all I need to say to a friend. That's what a card is supposed to do, right?  My card features stamps from the Bloom stamp set by There She Goes Stamps (no longer in business).  The paper is from the Citrus matstack by DCWV.  A small strip of washi tape that I got for free from someplace I saw on Facebook.  The dots are from Itty Bittys (SU!) stamped with Memento Dandelion, Cantaloupe and Tangerine inks.

The challenges:

Just Us Girls - Flower
CAS on Sunday - Sketch
Less is More - Citrus Colors
Crafting when we can - Use Washi

Thank you for stopping by and allowing me to play along with your challenges.  Have a great evening and I hope you're week is a good one.

This is a super simple design, looks like a touch of blue crept in there, but it's a super card!
Thanks so much

A great card for you friend Ana. You're right that it doesn't need much for a good friend to know you care. Love the dots and stripes it reminds of a far away field of flowers growing in the distance.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful work with us at Crafting When We Can Challenges. :-) xx
