Simple "Hello"

My craft time has been so limited, and though I always think there's an end to the hustle, somehow family life fills every cranny of time!

Girls are both playing basketball, my MIL has been unwell, my county is officially in a "State of Emergency" for weather, and I'm supposed to be going on a vacation of a lifetime this week... craft time? Haha, what's that?  (I started this post two weeks ago... update: MIL still unwell, kids still playing basketball, it hasn't stopped snowing, and I went on the vacation of a lifetime and wish my feet were still in the sand!)

I still haven't sent holiday cards to my craft-friends and DT peers. I'm so ashamed. Sorry, girls. (Another update: I spent most of Saturday filling envelopes for you guys!)

Anyway... here's the simple card as promised in my post title:

And here's a BONUS card made from monoprinting the remaining ink:

Supplies and notes:
  • A combination of Ken Oliver Color Bursts and Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals were sprinkled over Tim Holtz's Tiles stencil then sprayed with high quality H2O (LOL)
  • The sentiments were painted using black Liquitex gesso
That's about it!

I'd like to share with Happy Little Stampers January CAS challenge:


  1. Yes, I remember, you were going on an exotic holiday with one of your daughters? Sounds like you had a great time. Your first card might be inspired by the colors of Hawaii. The graphic pattern looks cool, looking a bit like tiles. Live it! Great second card too, same stencil, different look!

  2. More fun cards! Love how you used the monoprint too!

  3. Fab graphic look and I like the artsy look and mix of colours. Thanks for joining HLS

  4. Such a fun design ..... love the colour. Thanks for playing along with the HLS CAS Challenge xx
