Thinking of you

Hey y'all! Hope all is well?!...

I've been a little quiet, besides my scheduled posts. Some kind of nasty stomach bug visited our house a few days ago...seriously, no fun at all!! We've all been resting and are on the mend, thankfully! ;)

With all that being said, I've been trying to catch up on commenting/etc. When I was hopping around in blogland, I came across a few challenges. One being the current Skipping Stones Stamp & Share October Challenge, the other being Addicted to Stamps-Clean and Simple Challenge, and lastly Jennifer McGuire's Share Handmade Kindness Challenge-week 1, which if you haven't checked it out yet, you really should! ;)


week 1

So here's my card. (Which I'm not even sure how I managed to make something...Though, I couldn't stand to be laying down anymore! lol)

I wanted to keep things very clean, yet have some color(s) to stand out against the white. So I chose to do some coloring and a little bit of fussy cutting. Simple, yeah?!...

After thinking about it, I'm going to send my card to my aunt. It's been awhile since I've sent her anything and she just recently moved, so I'm sure this will make her smile. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
