Simple Things

Wow how time flies.  I made my last card the day after we got back from my Mother in laws funeral, then I had a few things to do to get ready for my Sister coming to visit, we had a good visit, sure wish we lived closer to each other. So last night I went in and made this card for my brothers birthday coming up this week.


Art Impressions-- Lake house window stamp
Distress inks and Distress markers for coloring the image
Spellbinders-- Classic Square Lg die
BasicGrey-- Basics Kraft and Origins Paper pads
Fiskars-- Corner punches
Martha Stewart-- Leaf punch
Button-- Flea market find
Twine

Hope you all have been enjoying your weekend and that you take out a little time to think of all those that have given their lives for us and our country.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Connie

This is perfect for your brother, or for anyone who has a love of the outdoors. A very peaceful scene. I can just hear the water flowing outside the cabin door. I hope you are all doing okay. I'm so sorry about your mother-in-law.
