A Too Kind Birthday Card

I feel like I've taken a lot of time off lately.  Actually, I think I have!!!  The holidays seem to take a lot of time but once they are over it's nice to get back in the swing of things again.  I have not stamped in a couple of days and I was missing being in my workroom, even though it's a mess!  I have stampers in a couple of weeks, so that gives me time to get it cleaned up.  My worktables become a dumping ground for things that are in my hands when I head downstairs.  The stuff belongs down here but it should be put away when I bring it down, not when I need the table!!!  I need to work on that!!!

Today's card did not take much work at all.  It was a lot of fun.  I like the clean and simple look and I like a few layers.  That is what I got. I used the "Too Kind" stamp set.  I have had a lot of fun with this set. 

I used Cherry Cobbler ink, decorative paper, and card stock to make this card.  I used the new Mossy Meadow ink for the stems.  The words were done on the computer.  
I do sell the words in my web store. This PDF download file contains 10 greetings that will fit in a 1=1/4" circle punch and layer them on top of another circle or on top of a scalloped circle.  Some of them even fit in the oval punch.  The greetings include: Thinking of You, Thank You, Happy Anniversary, Happy Birthday, With Sympathy, Get Well, Merry Christmas, Happy Father's Day, Happy Mother's Day, and Be Mine.  There are 24 greetings on each page.  You can print out as many pages as you wish and use them in cards you make to give away or even on cards you make to sell.   I print them out and punch half of them out. I put the rest in envelopes for safe keeping.  It's nice to have some already punched out for when I need a quick card.  

This was a very quick and simple card to make.  I think this would be a fun card to make using other wordings and make an occasions pack for a gift or to sell at this fall's craft fair.  Making "stuff" for the craft fair starts next week!  I have to start early or I won't get much done by the time fall rolls around.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
