Clean and Simple

Good morning everyone! It is going to be another scorcher here in the pacific northwest! We are headed up to 94 degrees. I do like the heat much better than the cold though.

Today I thought I'd show you the card I made for Todd for our anniversary. When I saw the CPS sketch for this week I immediately thought of this Elizabeth stamp from SU! Along with that SU! has a new designer series paper pack called Love Letter which, despite the name, doesn't really have any hearts and such for patterns (although I do think this piece looks like hearts) but instead is black, cream, and red. I chose to use yellow, though, because Todd's favorite color is yellow. I wanted to use Lemon Tart but it was very hard to see on the cardstock so I went with Summer Sunrise instead. Plus I had the perfect satin ribbon for it. I also added just a little bling with some of the heart shaped, yellow colored Taylor's Tiny Twinkles on different spots on the card. Oh, yes and a row of pinking hearts from the SU! punch finishes the card off. I have to say that for such a simple card...I really like it!

This card works not only for the CPS sketch challenge this week but also for the Gina K color challenge which is to use black, cream, and one other color. And the Pollycraft Monday Challenge is a love/marriage theme so much card fits in perfectly! Very nice, huh?

So, that is just about it for the day. I'm going to get a part that broke replaced on my car and do a little shopping today but that is just about it. Ah, the lazy days of summer, huh?

Make your day a wonderful one today!
