Short and Sweet

Here's a quick and simple little card I made with some supplies I just had sitting on my desk top. Instead of putting them away, I thought I'd make something with them! Simple, but happy and colorful, I think.

As you're reading this post, I'm on my way to the Stamp & Cruise. I still can't believe I'm going! I have my wonderful husband to thank for that as he STRONGLY encouraged me to go. :) I'm sure many of you moms know what I'm talking about when I say I'm REALLY struggling with leaving my kids. At the same time, I'm very excited for the cruise and to meet some new, wonderful people! I know the kids will be very well taken care of, but I've never really been away from them for an extended amount of time. Yikes! I just wanted to let you know that if you try to contact me, I won't be able to get back to you until I return. I have posts scheduled for you all week, so you won't really miss me! :) As always, I really appreciate your visits and your comments! You always brighten my day! Have a great week! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Floral Whimsy, Fluttering By (Verve Stamps); Paper- DCWV, vellum, Basic Black, Wild Wasabi (SU); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine), Wild Wasabi, Red Riding Hood(SU); Accessories- Martha Stewart border punch, paper piercer, Black polka dot organdy ribbon (May Arts), Dazzling Diamonds glitter (SU), Finished card measures 4.25"x5.5"

I love your card. The colors are so biright and cheerful. I wish I could just come up with ideas that quickly. It takes me forever to select colors let alone use things just sitting on my table. Thanks for your inspirations and I hope you enjoy your cruise. Sandy from MD

Have fun on the cruise sweetie!! I'm sure you're going to have a blast but I know exactly what you mean about missing your kiddos. I have never been more than a night away from my kids.

Your card is gorgeous!!!!

Congrats - what fun for you. On the other hand, I completely understand the uneasiness that comes with leaving our little ones. Enjoy your time away!
