Simple Pleasures



There's a lot going on here! Usually I don't have QUITE this many manufacturers on one card, but my cards have a mind of their own. I sometimes think I'm just a facilitator. The first thing I want to mention here is the background stamp. I was asked by Anita over at Anita's Arts to show off this gorgeous Anna Griffin Elegant Borders Clear Stamp Kit, which she carries in her store. Of course I said, "Yes!" The kit comes with 21 GORGEOUS AG border stamps, a brown pigment pad and a mount. It's all in a pretty little box, too!! Anita has a large selection of Anna Griffin products, including some of her beautiful punches, and card kits! I can't wait to show you some of the other stamps, I love them all!

I made this card for CSSC65 over on SCS. The primary image is from the Garden Creative Scraps, which I am really enjoying. I adore all CS images-their graphic designer is a genius. The  vine stamp is from Unity.

Wowza. Gorgeous. I love the effect of the paper on the right side of the card. What is it? That border stamp set is a must have for sure.

Another beautiful card! Your work is very impressived.
To answer your queston about my last layout - I'm not sure where the last picture was taken...the scrapbook is of my daughter's boyfriend not my son, and I got the photos from his parents. This one was not labeled so I'll have to ask.

This is another spectacular design. The mix of elements look so well together. I love when elements from different manufacturers work together as if they are made for each other!
