Quick and Simple


Hi everyone.

First of all, it looks like I have picked up a couple of new followers this week, so I would just like to say thank you very much to the new ladies for following me, and on course to all my older followers for sticking with me. I really do appreciate it! xxx

So, I am back today with a very quick and simple card.......let's be honest, sometimes you just need those kind of cards don't you?

I guess the best thing about this kind of card is that you can make it when you're just not in the mood for faffing, but you want / need to craft...that happens to me after a hard day at work! Then, once is made, you can put it away and grab it when you need a card in a hurry....and cards like this will suit a variety of occasions......you know, like those shop cards that say 'left blank for your own greeting'!

So with that in mind, this card was made with some flowers stamps from Stamp Addicts and coloured very quickly with my Spectrum Noir pens, with no shading.

The background is simply done with distress inks and that's it. I reckon this card took about 15 minutes to make, so a real winner if you are short on time.

Thanks for visiting today and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.  :-)
