Nature

I've never entered 2 cards for the Impression Obsession challenge, but really wanted to ink up my newest stamps. I knew I'd love the Spatter Cover A Card, CC059, & boy do I! The Berry Sprig, D8766, was stamped several times in the corners & the panel edges were distressed to create my simple background. The wonderful quote, Infinite Beauty, C5159, is stamped, sponged, distressed, matted & mounted with foam tape.  Gives me a card to use for my goal of sending "just because" cards in 2014.  Glad you took time to stop by.

  1. Oh gosh I love this sentiment Greta! IO stamps are great aren't they. I think this is the berry stamp my SIL has and always makes such pretty cards with. Sure wish I could get her to blog LOL! This is super pretty and the sentiment is perfect for it!

  7. This is so pretty and just perfect for your goal, Great!! I often wonder what ever happened to "just because" and "thinking of you" cards, so I'll stand with you in your movement to resurrect them! When I sold my cards in a small boutique a few years ago, they were always best sellers, but I don't often see them on blogs very often.

    Happy New Year! I want to wish you all the best for crafty, happy, and healthy days!! Cheers! Darnell

  17. Yes, yes and yes (I'm trying to hold back from shouting) to the "just because" cards! Awesome goal for 2014, and one that I'm going to strive towards, as well! I send monthly cards to my niece/nephew - perhaps it's time to broaden that circle! Your card here is stunning! The background you've created is "the" one for this sentiment, that is truly ever so beautiful! Gorgeous visually; outstanding 'purposefully'! LOVE this (and again, thank you for your inspiration!). You're awesome! Hugs~c
