Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Back to Basics.....Keeping it Simple

When I started stamping oh so many years ago this is the type of card that
I routinely made.  Maybe a layer once in awhile and a bow for embellishment.
Over all there were no layers just a stamped and colored image with a simple sentiment inside.
Have I com full circle?   I'm finding I'm doing more clean and simple
cards than ever before.  I love this look.  

I guess you would like to see what I babbling on about.
Ta it is in all of its simplicity.  

I suppose I should have scanned it with a colored paper for background, but
I didn't.   I wanted instant gratification with the card so I chose a
simple coloring page that I Googled.   These come in so darn handy and
there are lots of free ones of almost anything you would like.
The hearts and sentiment were printed on white
cardstock and colored with gold and silver gel pen.
Something else that I like to use.  
So there you have it Me....Keeping is Simple.
