It's the Simple Things.......

Today, I'm going to enjoy one my favorite things - not necessarily a simple one, but one of my favorites! I'm going clothes shopping with Emma.

Now some of you might be saying - "What! Are you crazy? Who enjoys shopping with a 13 year old girl?!" I know, I know, it's hard to believe. But when it's just me and her, we have a blast together!
I love watching her pick out clothes, observing what she's drawn to, seeing glimpses of her ever growing personality, watching her develop her sense of style. Most of the time, she really knows what she likes and she's learning what looks best on her. It makes me so proud to watch her grow and develop into a lovely young woman. I'm going to enjoy every moment!

So, here's a VERY simple card for you enjoy today while I'm out with my girl:

See? Enjoy the simple things......

I did a simple 4 1/4" square of Naturals White cardstock and stamped the flower stem in Lucky Limeade Classic Ink towards the bottom of the card.

The flower itself was stamped in Poppy Parade Classic Ink on a scrap, then punched out with the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch. I stamped the greeting inside the flower with more Lucky Limeade then popped it up on some Stampin' Dimensionals.

The little bluebirds were done by inking up just the bird part of the birdbath image with my Marina Mist Stampin' Write Marker. I inked and stamped it several times to make a whole little group of bluebirds! Aren't they sweet?

To make the grass, I cut a wavy strip of Lucky Limeade cardstock with my Paper Snips then used them to snip all along the wavy edge, very close together. I won't lie, it was kind of a pain, but isn't it cool? It was only 4 1/4" across, so it didn't kill me! It's adhered to the card with a little Tombow Adhesive and voila! I was done!

Just a sweet, simple little card - and I love it!
