No Ifs, and's, or...

Hello -
I have been sorting and cleaning my stash the past week. And in that going through everything, I realize I have too much stuff! LOL Lots of old stuff that I really should find new homes for, LOL. Why is it so hard to let go? Some of this is SOOO old. I am going to work on that. But I have had fun going through my boxes of stamps and seeing all my old favorites that I haven't inked in forever.  And when I came across the Donkey from High Hopes. His name is Brayden - love that name! Well I stopped and had to color him, with my Copics of course, and now you know why it is taking so long to do this... :0)  Well he was sitting on my desk, and this morning I put together a simple but bright card.


I know really bright huh? Seems like I have been in bold mood lately, that and I just love these Graphic 45 papers. Because the papers are so bold I didn't go with a lot of embellishments. Just sewed the layers down, 4 large vintage buttons and a die cut butterfly, that I colored with my copies. The sentiment is also from High Hopes... it is made to go with it :0)

The inside is the same papers, with my favorite "Happy Birthday" stamp from Alota Rubber Stamps.


While surfing around I found that this card basically qualifies for Sundays with Crissy Challenge - my butterfly takes care of that as the theme is "Things with Wings". I hope it does :0) May be a stretch.

Have a great day -
