Once again, I’ve been incognito for several days. ‘Me time’ has been at a minimum lately. Getting back to my routine with the boys being in school has taken a toll on me and I hope I haven’t bitten off more than I can chew with my new PTA responsibilities. I’ve just plain been exhausted! Anyway, I’ve got to find the mojo and soon! I’ve got a Stamp Club meeting coming up and my One Sheet Wonder Class shortly after that!
I started out with something simple. Don and I celebrated our fourteenth wedding anniversary last week. He isn’t a sappy card kind of guy and this simple card was short, sweet and to the point. I started with a Naturals Ivory card base and layer. I stamped the sentiment from Hand-Penned Holidays in Indigo Island and scored the “frame” using my Simply Scored tool (very cool tool!). I sponged on some Pear Pizzazz along the outside edge. Colored the Jewel Basic Rhinestones with a turquoise Sharpie® marker. The layer is adhered to the base with Dimensionals.
Like I said, sweet and to the point. It isn’t exactly what I had in my head and I wish I would have used Whisper White card stock instead. But, it severed its purpose and let Don know that I love him very much! :)
Thanks for stopping in today. I hope you’ve been inspired to make a sweet and to the point kind of card for yourself.

I completely love the simplicity of this card Leslee. The soft sponging and simple sentiment work beautifully. Wish I had the scoring tool, but it hasn't appeared in our catalogue this year - bummer!ReplyDelete
Amazingly elegant! I would love that scoring tool, too! bummer! Hugs xxaxxReplyDelete
