I sometimes get carried away creating elaborate cards with lots of distressing, embellishing and accentuating. Okay, I do it a lot.

Today I knew I wanted to use the beautiful Beyond the Garden DSP. It is just lovely and full of summer. I also used the coordinating Fabulous Florets. Once I got to stamping I knew this card wouldn't need much. I added a sentiment and brads and it is perfect!

Easy. Simple. Beautiful. All in five minutes!

Mark your calendars....

I am excited to offer this Fathers Day class. We will be making this mini album that can be used to hold favorite photos of your kiddies, inspirational quotes about dads or even a coupons to be redeemed by dad! The possibilities are endless. I will be helping you create this beauty along with a coordinating card.

The cost of the class is $15. You will receive all the supplies needed to complete this project as well as a package of Vintage Trinkets and half a pack of Nautical Expedition designer series paper. If you bring a friend to the class, the cost will be reduced to $10!! That is an awesome bargain!!

Country Inspiration

I have to admit I'd never think to use Real Red and Perfect Plum together. The cover of a recent Country Living totally inspired me. I finally whipped this up today after weeks of walking by that magazine thinking, "those colors would make such a pretty card." I'm so glad I did. I love how it turned out!
