The Simple Things

Good morning everyone! We have another day of on and off rain today. It is starting to get a bit old but like I said yesterday my flowers and the grass love it!

Today I thought I'd show you a really simple card that I made yesterday with some new stamps that I got from my friend Dani. Since the name of the set is The Simple Things I thought it would be appropriate to make a simple, clean card with it. I'm very pleased with how this came out. The colors don't look like they match in my photo but really...the flower and the solid color background paper match. For a little bit of interest I cut out some of the butterflies on the flower, glittered them up, and then popped them up on dimensionals. A simple thank you card that I'm sure will be used sooner rather than later.

I'm still loving my craft room! This week we start on pulling up the carpet and painting the walls in the hallways. We will then lay the same flooring in the hallways as we did in my craft room. It will eventually go throughout the entire house. We are thinking that we'll only get the hallway done before graduation but that works for me!

Well, that is it. I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday! See ya soon!Smiley from millan.net

Gorgeous card! Love the colors. Very striking. We've had rain every day in May so I am very sick if rain here. My poor garden isn't in yet the plants really need to get out of the pots. Hoping that the weekend will present better prospects!
