Simple Joys

Hi friends!

I need to keep it short and sweet today - I am swamped!

I made this card a little while back when I was using Background Basics: Tin Types non-stop. I double-layered my background, lining up the pink inside the red. I think its fabulous and would love to try it in fall colors. I even finished the inside, too :)

Also, a quick announcement before I scoot: tomorrow is the St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop at Waltzingmouse Stamps! That link will take you to Claire's blog where you can get all the details. I hope you can participate - Claire even created free digi stamps you can download if you don't have any for St. Pat's! Hope to see you hopping tomorrow!

I also wanted to apologize for not being able to do as much blog surfing as I'd like. I will be sure to stop by and visit (especially the Papertrey Princesses!) when I'm back! Know that I'm thinking of you, though!

Have a great day!
