Simple Delights





Firstly, I must apologise for the quality of these photos. I had to take them using my mobile phone in low light at night in my hotel room! Really, I think they turned out pretty good, all things considered.
I made these 10 cards using the Simple Delights Simply Sent Kit for Stampin' Up. The first card (pictured on its own) and the group on the right were pretty much as per the instructions. However, I had to do some playing and so the group on the left are variations on the top card. I kept the same basic layout but changed the stamping and the orientation. On one of them I even stamped on the twill tape!
I really like these cards, very subtle and simple. The colours are Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip and River Rock. An elegant combination.
I'm going to a meeting tonight so I probably won't post until Thursday night before I catch my flight to Melbourne.
For those of you reading this in Australia, I actually drew the winner of the Melbourne Cup in the sweep at work - I won $120! There's a first time for everything!

Simplicity at its best! So simple yet so elegant!

And yes, I do hand draw all my flowers and other tiny mini stuff. Whenever I use a stamped image, I mention it. But on the other hand I dont have stamps. It's good to find your blog. I am gonna stalk/follow you :P
