Sending Warm Thoughts...

YAY! It's getting closer to Friday - and I couldn't be happier about it.  I have some fun plans for the weekend - so I am ready to get it started.  First things first though - I thought I would share a card today that ISN'T a challenge submission!!  A good 'ole fashion card share!!  My card features supplies from Simon Says Stamp July Card Kit.  I have had this kit for several weeks now - and I am just now diving into it.  Sometimes creativity isn't an instant thing - it takes time for creative juices to flow - for me at least!

I started out stamping out a background onto this kraft paper which is Neenah Desert Storm card stock.  I used my new set from Lawn Fawn - Belinda's Borders.  I love this set - and I can't wait to use it for many uses in the future!  Then, I just cut strips from the pattern paper that was in the kit - this line is from Basic Grey - Paper Cottage.  I adhered everything to my kraft card stock and then stamped out my sentiment  from the stamp set that comes in the kit in Memento Ink - Espresso Truffle .  This is one of the main reasons why I purchased the kit to begin with - this set is created by Kristina Werner.  She is so awesome, and her handwriting is so lovely!!  

This lovely button comes from Chari Moss' Etsy Shop.  If you are not familiar with her - she is on the Design Team for Lawn Fawn.  She is a sweet, sweet girl - and awesome designer!!  She makes these handcrafted buttons in many colors and styles, and now has dyed ribbon to go with her buttons.  You should check out her blog/Etsy shop!!  She's fantastic!!   

Pretty simple card  really  - but colorful and happy!!  My favorite kind!!  

I'll return soon  - until then stay happy and crafty!!
