A Card To Uplift Your Spirits

May Your Spirits Soar Card

Card Of The Week – A Card To Uplift Your Spirits

Happy WOYWW to you, dear friends! This week I have another Clean and Simple card to share with you – one created from colorful die cuts and a few well-placed embellishments found in the most ancient parts of my stash.

It’s really refreshing to go back to basics sometimes and just let the shapes of the elements before you guide your design.

Sometimes, the simplest things in life really are the best.

    Cute card! And I’m intrigued – is that a tablecloth for the background? It’s wonderful!

      Hi Julia,

      Isn’t that a fun background? It’s actually the very artistic cover of my tablet (nothing drab for me!)

      I’ll try to remember to give you a full shot of it in a future WOYWW post as it’s SO pretty!

  29. Chris Dann says:

    Oh, that card is beautiful, you are right sometimes the simplest things are best.
    Love your cat, he looks gorgeous and cuddly, but the star of your page must be that Pumpkin Babka. We don’t do much with pumpkin over here in UK, people hollow out the great big orange pumpkin to make nasty Halloween faces and throw away the flesh because we have no tradition of using it, such an awful waste of food when so many people are really hungry. So I love a really tasty recipe to make using the flesh, let’s hope OH likes it. I have pinned it on Pinterest so I can find it.
