Clean and Simple



Borrowing the design I used for Perfectly Pink swap, I put a few "blues" together for March's Card for a Cause, which is submitting cards to an organization that works with women struggling with cancer. They provide them with gifts, cards, support, and all around encouragement. Great cause, huh?

These came together pretty quickly, since I already had a basic design in mind. Thank goodness, because this is a busy month.

Oh, and have I mentioned lately....my Christmas tree...yes, still up. I think that should be a goal this month, huh? I really REALLY need to take it down and put it away...Beyond embarassing. I keep thinking about what my good friend Heidi would say if she knew!

I am pretty sure I would love to see a picture of your Christmas tree still up:)
Your kind heart inspires me! What a great cause! You make me want to be a better person!!
Is the card you made one sided or does it open up? I love the idea. Very simple yet elegant.

Beautiful card! I love the simplicity! I had to laugh at the Christmas Tree. My parents just took theirs down and mine is fixin to go back up in June or so. My husband is military and will be deploying soon and missing Thanksgiving and Christmas so we are doing it all early. We will be the true meaning of Christmas in July! :) Good luck with your goal of getting it down! :)

ROFL I am just praying that it is an artificial tree or else it probably looks like Charlie Brown's. I love that card. I have that die, so you just gave me some great inspiration!!!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
