happy stamping

Happy Thursday crafters!  The theme at Seize the Birthday this week is stamping.  I find it interesting that I started off paper crafting with stamping and now, so many years later, I quite easily make cards without stamping *gasp*. So I like that stamping was a must for this card.  Went kinda' clean & simple with this one... stuck with my favourite colour.  Hope you like it.

Be sure to stop by the blog for all the rules & regs and to give some crafty love to the rest of the team. 

I'm off to a crafty retreat with my friends this weekend!  I get to spend all weekend chilling out and crafting with some of my favourite people.  Zero responsibility. Pure bliss.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
