clean and simple sunday #39

I would like to start by saying HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! I’m wishing all of the special ladies out there who take time to care for others a beautiful day, surrounded by love…

I would also like to say–Hooray!!  This is my 100th post—a bit of a milestone for me since when I started this blog last summer I wasn’t sure if I’d have enough to say to even warrant a blog, but here we are, 100 posts later!  And I have lots more to share in the coming weeks… a sneak peek at the album I created when I took the WEEK IN THE LIFE challenge by Ali Edwards. This was such a great project and I know it will become even more precious as the years pass, but I’m still finishing it up so more on that later. I will also be sharing shots of my creative studio, I have a new One Sketch/Three Cards article brewing, a Featured Stamp Set article in the works and I’m hoping to share my Project Life album as that develops—I’m starting that project today…  So a lot of creative stuff going on and I will share it all here over the next several weeks!!

As for the clean and simple design for today…

This card features papers from A Muse|Studio in sage and sage gingham. The daisy is made with the Flower Daisies #2 Die from Sizzix. I cut three of the medium daisy out of the A|S sugar card stock and three of the smallest daisy out of the lemon whip card stock. I layered them with Tombow adhesive in the center only–and fluffed the petals. I mounted it to the base card with a big glue dot sticker and added a button to the center. The sentiment comes from the A|S Essential Sentiments stamp set. I just stamped that directly on the front base card panel in the Memento Black ink.

Very simple, but fresh and cute, too (and made with love for a very special lady—-my Mom {heart}.

Enjoy some creative time this week and keep it simple!!   …K
