Clean & Simple Card

I was inspired to try one of Natasha's Clean & Simple Designs this week and while it took me about 3 days to do in between working & kids, I finally completed them. Now, if I had a free night, this would have been a breeze to do and one I will definitely use again.

I used two stamp sets I bought when I went shopping with some friends in MD on one of my trips up there (Gosh, they made me spend so much money with them!). I hadn't used either one yet and loved being able to use them. I have a very sarcastic sense of humor and absolutely loved this sentiment stamp when I saw it; I thought of my friend Rose & Kerry and knew they would appreciate it!

I also got the opportunity to start messing with my Copics. I still have a lot of work ahead of me but love the tutorials I've found on them. The more I play, the more I want :-) I need to hold off though as we are going on a cruise soon and we need to save some funds for that!

I actually created a set of 3 of these, 2 thank you's and 1 birthday card to add to my stash.

Card Details:
Stamps: Little Bird by Amuse, Rat's Ass by River City Rubber Works, Heartfelt Thanks by Stampin'Up!
Cardstock: Only Orange, Green Galore, Pink Passion, PP by Stampin'Up!
Inks: Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: Nestabilities

OK, I about wet my pants when I saw the quote on the first card; that's HYSTERICAL. And do you know I LIVE in the same city as River City Rubber Works and I've NEVER been there? I know, I should be shot huh?

Cute birdie image; love the layouts!
