One of my favorite stamping artists, Nancy Morgan, is hosting weekly challenges during the month of November on her blog, Paper Smiles, in celebration of it's Grand Opening. See the goodies she's giving away to the winner HERE.
This card is for Week 2 of Nancy's Grand Opening Challenge (PSG118 on SCS). The rules for this challenge are:
1) Let the Designer Paper do the work for you,
2) Keep it Simple, and
3) Make a general card for someone "just because".
4) Actually give it or mail it to someone ... no more hoarding!
Rule #1 was super easy ... that's what I do with ALL my cards! The "keeping it simple" was the biggest challenge for me. This layout was inspired by Sherri Barron's card on her blog, Fun To Stamp.
I've mailed this off to my mom's cousin and his wife (Terry & Cheryl). They took my mom in last week when she experienced some health problems. I am so thankful they were there for my mom last week when I couldn't be due to my mom living in another state.
