Bloom Where You're Planted ...

Pin It

Happy Thursday crafty stampers!

Today's card project was created in a New York minute for the current "Craft Your Passion" blog challenge. The challenge is a "recipe" challenge and called for the use of just one designer paper and exactly three brads. For all of the challenging deets, clicky HERE.

Here's the super-simple, one DP, three brad card I created:

For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo ... and for all the crafty product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Soooooooo, last night I had to make a quick run over to Sheila's. When I got there, I slipped into her house through the back door ... which is almost always unlocked.

"We're in here!" Sheila called out to me.

I found them on the couch in the family room, Sheila's head leaning against the crook of her DH's arm. Awwwwww, cute!

Suddenly her cell phone beeped.

It was a text message from her DH: "Move."

Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me!

May be simple you say, but you have this knack of making the most gorgeously elegant cards, that mm patterned paper scollop (or did you do the scollop) is just perfect and the 3 brads in that corner, just sets it off, cardmaking is definately an art. You nail it dear friend.
