Clean and Simple

Whew, another week of 2012 is gone, can you believe it?!?  Thank goodness this week's challenge over at Paper Sundaes is an easy one....Clean and Simple.  Sometimes, we can really over think a card when the simplest ones are sometimes the prettiest.  I felt that way about this card.  Some pretty paper, a simple flower and sentiment and voila!
The layout is courtesy of The Sweet Stop Sketch #136, from just before Christmas.  And, I liked it so much I made a second card using this sketch and actually made 2 of each of these so now I have added 4 cards to my Christmas card stash!
Speaking of may have noticed that I added some goals on my blog...upper left corner.  I figure this is a good way for me to see that I actually do get cards made, even when I am busy with life, and I wanted to show my knitting adventures as well.  I'm almost finished my first knitting project and am well into my second so hopefully I'll be able to show you that this week!

As for today, the Munchkin has a play date all afternoon at a friends house and I am working away at finding somewhere for the Rock Star to play so that I can have a few hours to myself in my craft room uninterrupted....and not after 9 at night.  :) 

Have a great day!

Love those round sentiments! CAS is the way to go, especially if you want to build up the stash!
Hope you got some time in your craftroom today!

Sorry Danielle, I just noticed that Shana missed adding your card to the post! It's in now, sorry again!

They are both super cute, and very smart of you to make 2 of each! I need to keep going on my Christmas cards, I'm really hoping to be in better shape next year!

Beautiful cards. Love the traditional colors and the cute image from the second card.
