Sending Lots of Love

I apologize for the terrible pictures recently. It's been cloudy and rainy here and I have yet to learn how to use my awesome T3i.

I've been seeing so many of those window cards, I just had to get the die. I quickly whipped this one up last night. Behind the window I adhered blue cardstock and some vellum. In real life it has a nice opaque quality.

I wanted to keep it clean and simple but I can't decide if it turned out too busy or a bit boring. I am still struggling with my *style* but I know with some practice I'll get there. I just need to stay off Pinterest long enough to actually spend more time in my craft room. ;-)

Hello Friend

I've been seeing all of the aqua and red color combos all over Pinterest so I thought I'd put it to use myself.

One Layer Wednesday 76 & Less is More 52

It's been a looooong time since I sat down and made a card for a challenge. So I chose ones that I thought were fairly simple. Well, that is until I had about 4 cards wasted because it just wasn't looking exactly like what I had in my head. Does that ever happen to you?

I combined Less is More Week 52 Sketch and Simplicity's OLW.

Susan's challenge was to use white, gray and a pop of color.
Less is More has a sketch to use. (I have more ideas swirling in my head for this one, so if I get time I hope to make another card before the deadline.)
