CLEAN AND SIMPLE, NOT MY FORTE

The SUO challenge this week is a monochromatic card....something I have not made in a long time.  I tend to be all about coloring....so it's good to stretch now and again and do something outside the box.  I used crumb cake ink for this - worked up very quickly for me.  I had so much company over Christmas I thought I would never stamp again.  Then, just like that, they are all gone and the house is so big, and empty, and lonely.....and.....I stamp.  Stamping is the best therapy.  Anyone else?  Stamping has gotten me through many a lonely day and night.  Anyway...this is one of the new Saleabration stamp sets - one of the FREEBIES.  Really makes a quick card!!  Guess that will do it for this time - Happy Tuesday everyone!! Keep on stamping and save money on shrinks!! ;) Until next time........Karen

Yep, stamping kept me busy when I was stuck at home with a broken foot. My "outside the box" was that I had to sit and stamp, when I usually do my stamping standing up. Great project, Karen!

Very nice card with such limitations you had! Stamping and crafting gets me through many different emotions. It's lots of time to do my thinking, praying, singing, reading (audiobooks) and whatever else I can fit in.
