Wanting a quick hello card to send off in the mail, I came up with a design so simple it will probably make you laugh out loud.  I think it delivers the message quite effectively!  Just feeling creatively lazy.  That’s the real truth of the matter.

Stamp:  Unity

The stripes on the word were created by simply coloring it with a red marker first and then swiping a grey marker over the red.  I added a tiny red gemstone for proper punctuation.  Unfortunately, I was unable to capitalize the H.

I’m joining in today’s Friends with Flair over at Unity.  I missed last week while on vacation and, being the addictive occasion that it is, I just couldn’t let another week pass me by!

Have a fabulous Friday and don’t forget to relax this weekend!  I’ll be back tomorrow with a creation for Dynamic Duos!

    CAS is a cool style to stand out elements and details. Nice job.

    🙂 Oh my gosh. I love it. So cute. And, of course, I love that you used proper punctuation! I think I need to make some of these.
