Everything is Better in 3's

I am really having fun playing over at Clean & Simple Stamping! It is a constant reminder that a card does not have to have all the bells and whistles to make a statement!

(Unless, of course, my husband is reading this...then YES, I do need all that stuff!)

This week's sketch is shown below. I knew I wanted to make something with snowflakes, as I am trying to get ahead with my seasonal cards. I guess that is kind of cheating, as I pretty well bypassed Thanksgiving. :)



This card was easy peasy, complete in under 15 minutes! Love cards like that!

Stamps: Winter Wonder (Verve), sentiment (CTMH)
Paper: All SU (Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue)
Ink: All SU (Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue)
Accessories: All SU (Iridescent Ice EP, retired ribbon)


This is an appropriate card to post today, as we are enjoying some flurries as I type! Apparently we have enjoyed a mild winter thus far, which is fine by me! I enjoy the snowflakes on my cards, not so much in my driveway. :)

Wishing you a wonderfully crafty day!

I love it! I can't wait to pull out my stamps and try something like that. Although that 's' word is a dirty word here in Misawa right now. The forecast is calling for it already- in October!

I had to laugh at your comment on my blog about the candy corn. If we are ever in a room together, you can have my share! Well unless it is the caramel kind and then you are on your own!

Oh this is a perfect Christmas card! I just love the CAS layout and the idea of a 15 minute card sounds REAL good to me!!!! Good "seeing you"! Hope all is well with you and yours!
Hugs,

But the bells and whistles enable us to go shopping. . . that's another 's' word. That I only really enjoy when it involves stamping! Nice offset images, great card.
