Simply Back to Nature ...

Pin It


TGIF hoarding card-makers and welcome to the weekend! And, since it's finally another Friday, it's time for another "Stamp Simply" challenge!

This week, we're being inspired by Mother Nature! Create something with a natural, earthy feel reflective of any season you enjoy. It's the natural/earthy element we're going for here ... not necessarily autumn.

I grew up in Connecticut and I really miss autumn in New England. My card is a l'il bit autumn ... and a l'il bit wildlife ... in a very clean and simple format:

To play along in this week's challenge ... and we hope you do! ... simply create a card or other paper project using Mother Nature for your inspiration. Then, upload it to your blog or online photo gallery and visit Sharon's blog, located HERE to link up your project in Mr. Linky, located HERE.

When uploading to an online gallery, such as Splitcoast Stampers, SNR, or Paper Craft Planet, please use keyword: "ssnotime160" so that we can find your project.
