Henry Said It Right ...

"It's not what you look at that matters. It's what you see." Kind of tired tonight, I didn't push myself on this one. It was easy - yet another simple card from a relatively simple old lady. There's nothing to explain either with the exception that the Breeze paper is textured cardstock. I really like textured cardstock, thinking it makes simple cards not so plain.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy and Black cardstock; Breeze Textured cardstock; Basic Grey Urban Prairie 6x6-inch paper pad; Black ink pad; Wordsworth Men Collection and Verve Stamps Fluttering By stamp sets; Gingham ribbon from Wal-Mart; Martha Stewart Arch Lattice Edger punch; Black wire.

How was your day? A good one, I hope. Mine was OK. I didn't make it back here last night. In addition to Cameron and the boys, Dustin (my rambunctious, albeit sweet, child) spent the yesterday afternoon with us, too. And yes, with all the roughhousing and ball throwing and crazy antics that went on, I was wiped out by the time they left. It's crazy how a pair of adult brothers transform into little boys again when they're around each other. It's fun and kind of annoying at the same time. Other than that, there isn't much that's new. Mother Nature is treating us to one more blast of winter, but that's neither new nor unusual in March in Minnesota. Thanks for all the comments on the cards I posted over the weekend. I truly appreciate the feedback and your visits. Most likely, I'll be back tomorrow night. Until then, take care!

Simple, but beautiful (as always) Kathi. That MS border punch adds a lot of zing to your card. Love the quote.

The quote is wonderful and so is the card. You make "simple" stunning, that is for sure!

I'm glad you had a good time with your boys...that's far more important than posting here. LOL

Can't wait to see your next simply stunning card!
