Checking in on a Saturday

I've been making cards like crazy today. Found a new site which I'm going to put on my bloglist or get the blinkie for when I have a chance. They are all about clean & simple. I've decided that is what I go to most often. I'm really just not a frou frou (sp?) kinda stamper. It actually pains me and I struggle all day to make frilly cards. You know the ones I mean....Becca Feeken-type cards. And believe me, I don't even come close to her creativity. So, I give up! Oh, every now and then you may see me attempt one, but not regularly. Clean and Simple goes along with my attempt to curtail my craft purchases. I have committed to not buying any of the numerous machines shown at CHA. I will only be using my faithful Cuttlebug. I have committed to not buying any more inkpads...only refills for what I own. I have enough pencils, markers, chalks, watercolors to last a lifetime. All I really need is paper (and maybe a length of ribbon) once in a while.
Here's a birthday card that's almost C&S. Pre-made card from "My Mind's Eye" box o' cards and a  nice big sentiment stamp. A simple punched up flower and a cloth brad I've had forever. Basic black bling and there you have it. I think I'm sending this to Joan Bardee's at Paperlicionus mom for her 89th birthday.
Hugs & Blessings,
Erica
