Flowers with Style...and a Blogging Break

Announcement: I am taking a Simplicity blogging break for about two weeks. While I'll miss posting here, I'm going to try to post on Questioning my Intelligence, the personal blog I've neglected far too long. I promise nothing, however, as living life will take priority over documenting it for the next few weeks. Honestly, the past months have been personally quite draining, and it's time to give myself a break and re-energize. Don't worry. Simplicity will be back!

And now for today's card.

I adore crisp, clean, stylized images...images like this stylized flower from Hero Arts.

Combine that crisp, clean image with fun colors and some bling, and you've got a simple winner!

Simple winners are the best winners, at least in my book.

Back in a few weeks.

Mercy, grace, peace, and love,

stamps: Hero Arts, Papertrey

  3. Take all the time you need. I've been following you for many years and cannot tell you how many times just looking through your beautiful cards has renewed my spirit and sustained me during challenging times. Your blog always brings me peace, warmth and lots of laughter with your writing. I hope your break gives you some of the joy that you have so generously shared with others. Take care.

  11. Awesome card. I will miss you and wish you an awesome time off.

  12. I hope you have a refreshing and rejuvenating break from blogging. I have loved your cards and your CAS style for a long time -- you bring me joy every morning on my bus ride to work. Looking forward to your amazing creations when you return!

  13. I always read your blog on Sunday afternoon - a day too late for this card... My favourite guy (AKA hubby) turned 60 yesterday, and this would have been a perfect card for a very busy man!
    Hope you have a restful break! Wishing YOU mercy, grace, peace and love!
