A Simple Card

Sometimes it is nice to make a quick & simple card! I actually made this for a make & take when I was pressed for time! The center of this card is made with the Top Note die. Simply cut a Top Note out and then turn it sideways and cut again! Easy as pie!! I am not sure whose original idea this was but I have seen it on several blogs lately. The pieces on the sides are the ones that are cut on the second time.
The stamp set is Trendy Trees; I love this set! It is great for making masculine cards and is a smaller less expensive set.
I am still working on VBS projects! I cut about a million sheets of paper in half for prayer journals and now I get to punch holes in them. Luckily my DD and her friend take bribes-I rented them a movie and bought ice cream in return for them putting some projects together. Actually, I think they would have helped without the bribe but this way I not only got help but ice cream and a movie!!!

seriously, we're at the SHOP the night before VBS starts? whatever, i'm ready for tomorrow.

BUT, and you will appreciate this, i was looking at some blogs, and a card made me think, "well, that looks just like Aboriginal art. . ."

Rhonda, really enjoying my 'catch-up' visit here today! LOVE this! I've made the top note squarish thing before, & have saved the 'leftovers', knowing there was something cool I could do with them. How fun to use them on the same project - gives a clean, graphic look to the card.
