Not Quick But Simple

The first title that came to mind for this post was 'Quick and Simple' but then I remembered that this card had been anything but quick. I used my new SU Good Neighbours set and it took me several attempts to get the houses and the roofs in alignment, well almost! The air was blue I can tell you and as I haven't felt like getting in the 'crafting zone' recently, using these stamps now was probably not a great idea.


Thought I would enter it into the Colour Create Challenge where they want to see cards using blue,white and kraft. The blue stripy cardstock is from an Artylicious cd rom and the sentiment was stamped with a Hero Arts alphabet onto a label cut with my new Labels One nesties. (I know, everyone else has had them for ages!) The ribbon and button are from my stash and I did some faux stitching to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping to look.
