Can You Believe it?


I did a clean and simple card!  I never do them!  This was quite exciting for me!  I found this great challenge over at the Less Is More site.  This is Week #12 challenge to create Off Centre. 

I used an assortment of stamps, most of which I have had for ages.  The balloons are an old D.O.T.S. stamp that I did in assorted SU! inks.  I added the strings by hand with a Zig pen, and then topped it off with a bow from Stamps by Judith.  I just love the ric-rak stamp I was able to blow the dust off of.  Why don't I use it more???  It is from Azadi Earles, Inc.  stamps.  It is one of my very first stamps.  The sentiment I bought just this year and it is from Rubber Cottage. 

Hope everyone had a fantastic Easter.  I also hope the "food coma" has worn off.  Have a fantastic day.  Maybe I will get back with another card!

I love how you tied those balloons together, and the sentiment is so thoughtful! Great card! No food coma here, it was just the 2 of us, so I cooked a simple, every day meal :)
