the simple things!


Hang on to your hats ladies 'cause you're in for a shock!! 

Look!! NO coloring!!

Shocking, I know!!  But since recently became the proud owner of these drool-worthy owl stamps from CTMH, I just had to share!! and I didnt even have to whip out my markers!! super fun, I tell ya!!

Since there is NO coloring needed on any of the stamps in this set, I figured it would be perfect for some (delish!!) quick & simple cards.. right?? well, simple yes, but quick?? NOT for me!!  I swear I have some sort of mental block which does not allow me to just MOVE ON ALREADY!!!  I kept looking at it, and moving the button, and then no button, ribbon, no ribbon, piercing?? sure thing!! OMG!! enough already!! of course, now I love it - and the funny thing is as soon as I got this set I KNEW these were the colors I wanted to use, but sheesh - the pressure of a "quick" card.. I tell ya, sometimes you just can't win!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Now I'm off to find something to color before I pass out from the sheer lack of Copic fumes

  1. I think your card is adorable. I love that you did not have to color in the owl. I make simple cards all of the time and like you I keep moving things around and my simple cards take me a long time. I had to laugh when I read what you went through because I can relate. :)
