CCC #133 ~ It's the Simple Things!

As autumn knocks on our door the days have given way to chilly mornings where the warm sunshine gradually brings the day to a pleasant temperature. The skies are the most beautiful shade of blue and the evenings turn cool shortly after dinner. This is my kind of weather and just perfect for long walks with my sweet little Max. I took a moment after one of those very walks to make a quick card for the latest CASology challenge where the cue word is grass.


I immediately thought of this long grass stamp I have from Impression Obsession. My inspiration was drawn from one of my husbands beautiful photos. Is my guy talented or what!!! My little bird faces in the opposite direction, but I think you get the idea! The sentiment (also by IO) is something he always says to me when I have a silly goof up of some sort!!


Thanks for stopping by, I'm so happy you did! ~Lisa

You and your guy are both so talented, Lisa! So often opposites attract even in terms of artistic/scientific pairings, so I love seeing two artists making magic together!! Your card is a perfect take on his sensational photo!! Hugs, Darnell
