Another week gone by

Seems as if the weeks are rushing by way to fast. I live near a High School and I can hear the band playing at the first football game of the season. They also shoot a cannon every time they score. And if I have counted right it is going to be a fairly high scoring game. It seems so long ago that my boys were playing football. I do miss those days. Scott's death has brought so many memories to mind lately.

This week Pat at Southern Breezes challenged us to do a simple card. No layers, no bling, just stamping.I took the opportunity to make a 8 pc set of 4 x 4 note cards, for a B/D present. It went so fast. The stamps are from Art Declassified
featuring "Cafe Paris". There are two in a set. The stamps were a gift to me from a special stamping friend. I used Adirondack Hand-Made Rainbow "Wildflower" Ink Pad. I stamped each card using a different angle on the stamp pad. They all came out different. You can see in the 2nd picture that I stamped the smaller of the stamp set on the inside of the card. I really like this simply stamped little set of cards. I didn't use a sentiment so that they can use them for anything. Thanks for visiting.

Simple, but oh so beautiful! The inkpad was a perfect choice! Is it new?
