Clean and Simple....


Good morning my friends, hope your weekend is going well. We had lots of rain yesterday, but thankfully the temps were not cold , so no Snow word. I have loved that our only bit of snow has been a light skiff that melted by mid morning  on the roads. I am ready for Spring, flowers and butterflies. Do you think that was my inspiration for this card?

I went shopping last Monday to use a gift card and found a new Martha Stewart Punch around the Page set "Loops Heart" and this gorgeous ribbon by Pebbles. The butterfly is also a new purchase....from K&Co. I found a new challenge site this past week Word Art Wednesday where they give a free piece of word art each week and ask that you use it in your project. I am also using the sketch this week from Freshly Made Sketches (Thanks Betty for pointing me to this site).


And last but not least, I am entering my card into The Outlawz Sunday CAS challenge to use something new on our card. Everything on my card is newly purchased this week except for the textured white card stock from The Rubber Cottage and my pearls (Gina K Designs) that I added to the ribbon.

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!
