It's Not All Black and White

A Little Something

Yes, I actually made a card. Last week actually, and I just now got a decent picture of it and am posting. I used last week's Fall-To Layout #41 from the Clean & Simple Stamping blog. I love their layouts for quick, easy, classy cards. I changed the circles to rectangles, but I think I followed the rules otherwise. The colors are very vanilla, kiwi kiss, soft sky and basic gray, and the stamp set is Pocket Silhouettes (all Stampin' Up!). I think I've had this set for a year and this is the first time I've used it. Isn't it so classy, fun and best of all...SIMPLE!?! And that's my ever present Martha Stewart butterfly punch.

Hugs to you all. I'll be leaving Thursday morning for a long weekend at Myrtle Beach with Josh and some friends, but I actually have two more cards that I made over the past month or two. I'll pre-set a couple of quickie posts. Just so you know I have stamped, even if it's been just a wee little bit. HUGS! And thanks for your kind well wishes and sympathy. They mean more than you could know.
