Clean, Classic, Uncomplicated

For my title, I had to come up with some synonyms for a word I've been using all too often lately - simple. I thought this was going to be a one-card night until a card caught my eye again in the current issue of Papercrafts magazine. I looked at the card in the magazine, glanced at the clock, and told myself, "Yup, I've got time to make this one." I thought buttons might be a problem, not knowing if I had something big enough and if I did, if they'd be the right colors. It turned out I found some, and up close and personal, they're not as bright as they appear to be in the photo. Had I not had buttons, I had an alternate plan using Circle Window Charms.

The clock is now saying it's bedtime. Tomorrow is Friday, and I wouldn't want to start the weekend tired come quitting time tomorrow. Thanks for stopping, and if you're so inclined leave me a comment and let me know you were here. Oh, and one more synonym for simple - uncluttered.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy cardstock, Heavenly Blue textured cardstock, Crystal Blue ink pad, Impression Obsession Everyday Greetings stamp set, Cricut w/Mini Monograms cartridge, Piercing Tool, Stampin' Up Piercing Guide and Mat, White Uniball Signo Gel Pen, Buttons of unknown origin, White Embroidery Floss.

Well now, I need to look through my copy of Papercrafts a little more closely! I don't remember seeing this one. This looks awesome. I know I've got some buttons, I've got TONS o' buttons!

Thanks, them what you want, simple, clean, uncluttered. I call your work fantastic!

I love all the flowers and the things of spring that you've been using. They are just so cheery!
